305/55/18

I did a search and did not find anything. Will 305/55/18's fit on my jeep commander with spacers and a 2" lift?

So its only a ~31.2" tall tire, but it is 12" wide. You will likely have to address the pinchweld, and you will be close to the UCA bolt depending on what size spacer you run. 1.25" should be enough. The specific tire you choose will make a difference as well, as a more aggressive tread can be larger and a "P" designated tire is generally a little smaller than a "LT" designated one.

Which 2" lift?

What wheel are you running?

That is a really wide tire, any reason why you wouldn't consider a narrower one? I assume its for looks, or limited options for the specific tire that you have chosen. MPG takes a bigger hit with such a wide tire.

I have a slightly taller and much narrower tire on an 18" wheel (with less BS than stock, equivalent to 1.25" spacer) and I am quite happy with the stance if you want a comparison, and my MPG hit was minimal.

Stock forteras 245/65r17

255/70r18s with 1.5" lift

Jeep Commanders ranging from the 2" spacer lifts to the 3.5 inch Rock Krawler kit can fit the following tires WITH wheel spacers but will cause minor rubbing: (MINOR TRIMMING OF THE REAR PLASTIC FENDER WELL AND BENDING OVER OF THE PINCH WELD REQUIRED)
