It's not totally the same, but just so you have some idea.. I have a 2.25" RRO lift and Good Year Silent Armors in 255/75/17 (AT's) and before spacers I had rubbing on the inner fender wall area which could not be remidied because it was against the frame basically. So I ended up getting 1.5" spacers which then caused rubbing at the pinch weld. I did the pinch weld mod and no more rubbing.

Different tires, will obviously not be the same, but it's should be close and at least give some info..

Thanks. So do I need to go with 255 70 17 to avoid any rubbing or other mods besides my 2" RC lift?

I honestly don't know which size will work. It was the width that was the problem initially, and then after the spacers it was the height. So a narrower 32" might work without spacers (not sure if that exists?) or go with a smaller diameter and hope? I'm sure if you search around you can find the answer, I just don't know it off hand.

I have the 2 inch lift and run 265 70 17. I also added an additional 1/4 inch spacer in the front that I got from some one in the forum- can't remember who. For some reason it rubs when it is cold outside but not when it is warm, no it has nothing o do with tire pressure changes as I monitor those closely.

Why so concerned about rubbing? If it rubs and it probably will, just take snips to the offending area. It is just a plastic wheel well. Most on the forum have snipped into their wheel wells. You just need to remove a small portion of it.

OK, so got them on today and they look GREAT. No rub so far with the 2" lift and look AMAZING. Perfect set up in my opinion. I will post pics soon.
