Hi All,
New to the forum and was looking through old posts to find info on tire size options for a stock KJ. I use my Lib off-road on weekends, mostly desert and mountain trail driving (not much snow) . I've decided on BFG T/A KO, but unsure of the largest size that won't rub under load, tight radius turns, etc.

I've found that 245/75 (30.6") seems popular, but the local tire shop also says 255/70 (30.2") will work. I don't see mention of 265/70 (30.7") anywhere - does anyone know if they will rub? Ideally, the tires would also be well-suited to a 2" lift which i hope to put on this year.

Any extra advice would be much appreciated!

Nice. no

Looking at this (not an endorsement of their product - just the specs), are you sure you want to try to put on that large of a tire prior to lifting it? Sounds like you're going to run into rubbing problems if you flex much prior to lifting it. Here's this from page 2 of the 3" lift instructions:
Quote:
This suspension system was developed to run up to 265/70/R16 or 245/75/R16 tire on a 7 or 8 wide wheel.
