A lot of us are running 265/70R17's on our Commanders with a 2 inch lift. Since you have 18 inch wheels, the equivalent tire size would be 265/65R18. Normally wheel spacers are needed to clear the ball joint bolt and bending of the pinch weld and re forming the rear portion of the front inner plastic fender well is required.

You can also go with a 265/60R18 which will be approx. 1 inch taller then your stock tires. With that size you mostlikely wouldnt have to do any work to the fender wells to make them fit.

Not a problem. You shouldnt have any rubbing with the second size tire I posted. You might have to look at the ball joint bolt though. Honestly im not sure how close it will be with that size. You have two options though if its close. Either trim a little bit of the stud or get some wheel spacers to set out the wheels a little. A big factor will be how wide the tread width is on the tires you get. Every tire is different.
