New Wheels & Tires yesterday...

So I finally got new wheels & tires yesterday - I've had my Commander for a few years and I've added absolutely nothing to it - then in the past week I added a 2" lift - larger Rancho shocks - 17" KMC Rockstar wheels - and 265/70/R17 Nitto tires.. Just thought I'd share.. I found out that I've lost some turning radius - even with the lift the tires still rub on U-Turns.. Oh well.

Looks graet! I've had the 2" rough country lift for about a year. Some day, like maybe when I wear out the tires and feel like going big, and when I get really ambitious, i'll install it.

No - why would I need spacers?! Besides, now the tires sit just outside of the wheel well, maybe 1/4" - With Spacers the tires would sit well outside of the wheel well.
