I'm installing a 2 inch Rough Country leveling kit on my Commander soon. I need recommendations on the best size of wheel spacers to use along with applicable largest off-road tires size. Any other recommendations are appreciated. Thanks!

255's should barely clear the UCA bolt. anything wider will require a spacer. .25" can allow you to clear a slightly wider tire and 1.25" to 1.5" is typical for a wider stance.

Available Tire Sizes from Stock to 4.5" Suspension Lifts


Tire sizes on the Jeep Commander are limited due to rubbing on the upper control arm ball joint bolt and the rear portion of the plastic fender well. Depending on the size tire, wheel spacers may be needed to clear the ball joint bolt. Depending on the height of the tire, the rear portion of the fender well plastic might need trimming and bending over the pinch weld might be required.


Stock Jeep Commanders or Commanders using the 1/4" leveling spacer can fit the following tire sizes WITHOUT wheel spacers and no rubbing:

245/65R17 (Stock Tire Size)
245/70R17
245/75R17 BFGoodrich All Terrians (might have minor rubbing)
255/65R17


Jeep Commanders ranging from the 2" spacer lifts to the 3.5 Rock Krawler kit can fit the following tires WITHOUT wheel spacers and no rubbing:

245/65R17 (Stock Tire Size)
245/70R17
245/75R17
255/65R17
255/70R17


Jeep Commanders ranging from the 2" spacer lifts to the 3.5 inch Rock Krawler kit can fit the following tires WITH wheel spacers but will cause minor rubbing: (MINOR TRIMMING OF THE REAR PLASTIC FENDER WELL AND BENDING OVER OF THE PINCH WELD REQUIRED)


255/75R17
265/65R17
265/70R17
