Looks good!!! I was going to get the nitto graplers originally, but I didn't want to deal with the rubbing issue.

In normal driving conditions, there is absolutly no rubbing, except, unless you lock the wheel to the left, but its minor and really not typicall.

265/70-17 without spacers or trim?????POSSIBLE????

"In normal driving conditions, there is absolutly no rubbing, except, unless you lock the wheel to the left, but its minor and really not typicall."

allstatebeer,
Let me understand one thing here...
Taken that you have a 2" inch lift.
I've read dozen and dozen of treads were every single one of them say that there is no way to fit 265/70-17 without spacers or trim...
But you have fitted them WITHOUT spacers and WITHOUT trim/pinch weld with only a slight rub at full lock on the left..???

Anyone here can confirm..?????????

Just in case here is the link to the tread:

I just installed an Old Man Emu coil lift on my friends HEMI commander over the weekend and did the pinch weld mod. He just got new tires installed about an hour ago and still has slight rubbing. He need to heat up the inner fender well liners a little more and push it farther back. He has 1.5 inch wheel spacers. The tires would have never fit without the pinch weld mod.

So then there is no way that allstatebeer was able to fit those 265/70-17 tires without spacers or bolt trim or pinch weld...right? He must have forgot some info?
I'm just very concerned on putting spacers and don't like to "wide" look of spidertrax. 1.5" is too much for me on the look and i'm afraid of the safety od spacers in general...
Shall I just go with 245/75-17 with no spacers and no trim..?

You can run 255/70R17 with a 2" lift and it requires no trimming or spacers.
