Some tire size help please

Hello All -

Thanks to all the great information on this site, I have narrowed my new tire choices down to BFG AT KO's or Brigdestone Dueler AT Revo 2.

I have a stock '08 Overland with 245/60-18. Neither of these tires are available in the stock tire size. What are some of you other 18" wheel owners running?

Thanks!

Rich

If you put a 2" lift on you will have more options. A 2" lift can be had for around $150 or less.

Yeah - eventually, I would like to lift a little. I need tires like yesterday though. I was hoping to get to DT this weekend.

The Dueler A/T Revo 2 is available in a 255/70-18. Any idea if that will fit without rubbing?

Thanks!

I don't believe they will fit. See this thread--> https://www.jeepcommander.com/forums/showthread.php?t=8393

Thank you for all your help jeep5253!
I looked there before I originally posted but could only find info on the 17" wheels.

Looks like the tires may have to wait while I break down and get lifted.

Eventually, I would like to get a lift kit but for now I think I will have to go the spacer route.

Of the spacers listed (or not listed), is there one brand you would suggest?

Thanks again,

Rich

Any of the spacers listed are good. I believe the Spidertrax will be the least expensive.

Sorry - I was talking about the 2" lift spacers. Will the Spidertrax wheel spacers allow me to move to a 255/70-18?

Sorry for the dumb questions - I really appreciate your help.

My knowledge on this is limited. If you send a PM to 07JeepXK he will help you.

I didnt want to start a new topic and clutter things so figured id tag on the end of this one. I am putting a 2 inch lift on my commander this weekend. I am going to buy 1.5 spacers as well I am getting the new tires within the next month and i want to go with a 265 70/17 i was looking at the kumho road venture mt k71's. I guess my question is what am i going to have to do with the wheel well and everything if anything. I am new to the forums so help is greatly appreciated. Also i apologize if i posted in the wrong place.
