18" Overland Wheels w/2.25 RR lift Question

The lift will be the Rocky Road 2.25. I will be running spacers.

I have seen threads where a 265/60 & 265/65 work great on the 2" lift, but nothing on the 2.25 with stock 18s. I'm pretty sold on the 265/65, but am just curious. There isn't much info on using the stock Overland wheels.

How much trouble am I getting into with 275/65/18s? Is that too wide of a tire for the 7.5" wide wheel?

if my math is right, the 275/65 comes out to a little over 31in. and with anything over 2in of lift and spacers should fit just fine with little rub or non. i dont have experience with the 18in rim as i went from a aftermarket 20in to a aftermarket 17in. but if you can get that in a tire size for 18in it looks like you will be fine as long as you have at leat 1.25in spacers

2in. Tuff Country lift, Ultra 195 Crusher BLK 17x8 rims
Toyo Open country AT 265/65/17's

275/65/18s are 32.07.

They're taller and wider than the 265/70/17 that most run. They'll fit with a bit of extra trimming, longer bump stops in the rear and possibly additional 1/4" lift spacer up front and carefully chosen wheel width/backspace. Im running them.

Thanks guys, everything Ive read says stay under 32" unless you want a fair amount of trimming. I'd like to do as little as possible, so it looks like my best bet will be the 265/65.
