I've been trying to weed through all of the lift/tire threads to see which tires will be best for me. I just had a 2" lift installed last week and i'm looking for a little taller tires. From what i've read if I get the 255/70 I will need wheel spacers to keep from scrubbing, is that correct? I would rather just get the 245/70s if I have to get spacers. Are my assumptions correct? Thanks in advance.

Goodyear Wrangle Silent Armors in size 255/70/17s will not require the wheel spacers. I ran this setup for a little while before adding wheel spacers and then just going to an offset rim.

If you could run 255/70s with no problems, 245/70s will not be a problem..

Depending on the tire brand you can fit 245/70R17's on a stock commander. So with your XK being lifted, youll have no problems fitting that size.

I ended up going with the 245/70/r17's. Thanks for the advice.

So far so good, with the 2" lift and the taller tires I can definitely tell a big height difference. I can actually use my running boards now. I will try to get a few pictures up soon.

Tires

I have a stock 2007 4.7 commander 4x4. I just bought a set of Goodyear Wrangler Silent Armour 265/65/17 because I got a wicked deal. Do I need a 2' lift now or will these tires fit on the stock jeep.

Thanks
