18" Wheels 265/70/18??

So decided to pick up some 18inch Wrangler polished wheels for my Commander before getting new tires. The only problem is I did all my tire research for 17''wheels and decided on 265/70/17. So what is the biggest size tire that can fit a lifted 2" lifted commander with spacers? Would it be 265/70/18 or is that not how it works? Want the same size tire just with a bigger hole for the wheel. THANKS

i've used this calculator for years http://www.rimsntires.com/specspro.jsp
my first commander had a 2" lift w/1.5 spacers - i ran 265/65/18 on the wrangler rims. i honestly don't think the 70's would fit nicely. i also had trimmed the wheel well and bent the pinch weld over.

On my second '06 Commander - first was a Dark Khaki 4.7, I'm now in a Black 5.7 w/ RC 2", 1.25" Spacers, Custom Spectre 4" Intake w/K&N cone filter, NGK G-Power Platinum plugs, Superchips (91+ Tune), 245/70/17 Kenda Klever MT's,

I am on 255/70r18's with not rub. 2.5" front lift and 2" rear. No spacers but my wheels have less backspacing similar to a 1" spacer IIRC. TONS of room for the bolt.
