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

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.
