Tires

I have a 2008 Wrangler x with a 2.5" rough country lift. I want to put 285/75/17's on my stock 17" rims. Will this work? also will they fit on my spare tire rack?

Great guys here, someone will answer it correctly if I am wrong. I would suspect the answer will be yes, but I do believe spacers may be necessary with stock wheels. I am looking to maybe do the same. Although for the price of 17" Duratracs, you can get 15" wheels and Duratracs for the same price. Just my .02

I was guessing I may need spacers too. I saw on one post where someone ran 285 70 17s on their stock rims and they said it worked didn't know if it was the same for the 75s. Thanks.
