Thanks, I'm gonna buy a set of Ebay OEM knock offs and some TPMS. The diameter of the General's I have are approx. 30" so should be alright.

Anyone try these?: General Grabber AT2 Light Truck and SUV Tire 245/70R17

I love the look of them, and I think they would add a tiny amount of clearance over stock. I am just worried they will rub.

These are what I have, a great tire so far at a good price.

I can confirm that they do rub slightly. Mine are 245/70-R17 and I do not have a lift. This is after several months of running these tires, and moderate offroad use (full wheel travel assured). The rub is light enough I've never heard or felt it, I just noticed this today while I was upgrading my lights with the front wheels off.

I think that a 255/70-R17 would have fit also but obviously they would rub worse on a TH without a lift.

I have said this before but it seems to keep getting missed....

Everyone is focusing on what tire sizes will fit with/without rubbing but don't also included if they are or plan to run wheel spacers. This makes a HUGE difference. Spacers push the tires out and increase the scrub radius. If you plan to run lager tires AND spacers you should get your grinder ready....

Is it possible to keep stock size tires with spacers and have no rubbing issues?

That's still a subjective question. A 25mm spacer isn't going to have the same effect on scrub radius as a 40mm spacer. The bigger the spacer the more radius your front tires are going to cover in a turn.

So is it possible and how big of a spacer can you go without any rubbing?

I can tell you the stock TH tire is about all you can run with 1.25" spacers and not have rubbing.
