I'm still racking my brain about tire size for my Commander. Im seeing, using the Tacoma wheel calculator, that these two sizes are nearly identical. Thoughts?

Stock 18x7.5" Overland wheels, 2.25 RR Lift, 1.5" spacers.

Your Commander is one of the Jeeps I've studied, looks killer BTW....but aren't you also on about a 3" lift with the OMEs?

Yes, and my tires are taller than the 285/60/18s and my wheels stick out further than your desired wheel/spacer setup which negate the extra .7-1" i'll have over your RR lift.

If I were you, i'd get the 285/60/18... the slightly more width will look great

Edit: btw thanks :drink4:

I was talking about the tire rubbing the upper ball joint, but in doing research just now the spacers will cure that.

I played it safe & went with 265/65/18 Toyo Open Country ATIIs. I have very minor rubbing in the front. Slight enough to where I could probably just head the fender well plastic and form it back.

Your ball joint will be fine. But later on you can always upgrade to JBA or RRO HD Upper Control Arms

You'll need to go bigger than 2". Max tire for the 2" lifts is really 31.5/32 with either trimming or the pinch weld mod. In the bottom picture above you can see that a 31.5 really is a good fit. Any bigger and you'll run into issues.
