Cool Largest Size Tire????

I need to get a consensus, thought I would consult the masses, rather th the "experts", as the 'experts' don't agree. I have a 2005 Wrangler Unlimited with stock wheels and a 2 inch spring spacer lift. Other than the 2 inch spring spacer lift it is bone stock. I need to know what the largest tire size is that I can use on this configuration with the following conditions. NO tire rub when turning and with NO adjustments to the steering stops and NO rub on the fender or wheel wells.

This has been extremely frustrating as I have had tires and wheels ordered twice from local national franchise over the course of the last 27 days and neither time have the wheels been shipped for some unexplainable reason.

Thanks in advance for your help.

30x9.5 is the largest without adjusting steering stops. Anything wider will rub at full lock.

How much ya wanna cut?

In all seriousness though likely 30x9.50s. I have 31x10.50s and they only rub when at full steering lock, which is almost never unless I'm wheelin'.

Talking

If the stock wheels were to be used, yes the 33x12.5 duratracs would rub at full turn deflection. However with the 15 inch blackrock 909 you gain almost 3 inches of back-spacing. I got the 33's put on last night 24 hrs after ordering from discount tire online and all is good at full deflection in both directions. I may have failed to mention that currently there is a 2 inch spring spacer lift on the LJ. I will be doing some off road after 7/4 in the mountains, got to escape this 115-120 degree heat, unusually high this weekend. I will be pulling the 2 inch spring spacer lift and putting on the new Teraflex Enduro Long Arm as soon as I get a few extra Sunday Paychecks.
