I need help.

Hey guys,
I'm a new member of the forum, but have been reading it since I purchased my 2007 commander sport. Yesterday I had a 2.5" front and 2" rear lift installed, it looks great and I'm very pleased. That being said, now I need tires to fill the gaps. I was thinking of getting 25570R17 for the front and 25575R17 for the rear, because it appears that the rear wheel well seems lower than the front even though its level. I know that sounds weird because i lifted the front more but I'm weird. Anyway, I know that they"ll wear differently which is fine by me, but will there be any other issues I need to worry about? I wasn't planning on adding spacers at the moment, I also don't want to do the pinch weld mod, thats why i was sticking with 25570R17 up front. Thanks in advance

You need to be absolutely sure you don't have AWD. Running different size tires will cause seriously damaged.

Ok I just did some more research, thank God for you guys. Apparently QT1 is technically AWD, so I'll go with the 255/70R17 all around. Thank you guys so much.

One last thing, if I do decide to get spacers, how wide until I have a ribbing issue?

Go with 1" to 1.5" wheel spacers if you want spacers. The 255/70/17 should fit stock wheels at least 2" lift without spacers. But you just never know when getting that close. I was able to fit 265/75/17 (1/2" wider) without spacers which means you should be fine. Check this link out Lift tire size spec

Thank you. I wasn't planning on doing the pinch weld mod but I like my options of tires better at 255 75 17. I'm torn on what I want to do
