Ok so in March I bought a practically brand new set of Firestone destination a/t 25575R17 tires on JK wheels for a steal of 220 bucks. I also installed a 2.5 inch lift up front and 2 inch in the rear and installed the wheels with 1/4 inch spacers. The ride is fine, the look is aggressive but I've recently realized my from tires are wearing in a weird way. It seems that the lift causes a minor positive camber. Would maybe 1.25 inch wheel spacers help? You can barely see the problem but it's driving me nuts, I'm new to lifted vehicles. Here's some pics. The worn tire is the front, the good one is rear. Thanks in advance

Congrats on your lifted XK, definitely does look more aggressive. Did you go in for a front wheel alignment after you installed your lift? That's a must post install. If an alignment was done then the lift didn't allow for the proper specs so new upper control arms will address that issue. Jeepin By Al (JBA) makes UCAs for lifted Commanders that allow the alignment to come within factory specs.

I recently did a leveling type lift on my brothers pickup truck (not a Jeep) and he wanted to cheap out on a front end alignment afterwards. Once I pointed out how his tires were sitting, he bit the bullet and paid a garage to get it aligned.

Even if you don't really notice a camber issue after the lifts installed, alignment is just a necessary expense after a lift. :)
