Na they won't. The 245 70 has the wriggled around for the lid to close. The 255 would have the lid lifted slightly.

My only possible run issue is when I floor it during a turn. The front right tire rubs the lower spring collar (if that's even the right term for it, I'm a novice), but it's a rare occurrence.


It's the small black spot near bottom center.

That should not be the tyre rubbing. The strut and spring base move up and down and turn with the wheel so the distance will never change. More likely a rock or mud or stick or something in the tread hit it.

The 245/70 is also another 1/2" taller again and probably doesn't sit flat in the well causing it to push the lid up.
Pretty sure there was a thread here that said the 255/45 fit.
And also it will probably depend on what tire you are running. A BFG KO2 or a Duratrac have fairly aggressive sidewalls that protrude which could cause interference, My Cooper X/T4's do not and would probably have no issue.

Thanks everyone for the info, it's very helpful. Since I have no desire to start trimming on my new jeep I think I'll most likely go with the 265/65/17's.

When people say they have no rubbing issues are they checking the tire at full suspension compression?

Also, does this AWD/4WD system require that all tires be the same diameter (i.e. the spare has to match the other tires)?

Didn't you say in another thread that you had to air down to 5psi for that to work? Probably a good piece of information to have in case someone expects to do that without some sort of on board air.

Yes I did, and I do keep a small compressor in there with it. Along with a plug kit and tools.

I think I saw in a thread somewhere that the duratrac 245/70/17 will rub ever so slightly on the TH with extreme off Road compression, but that it's not a problem.

For me, it's extremely rare I'd be at that compression. Also, I wonder if airing down a bit prevents it which it seems likely you'd do for that kind of crawling, right?
