265/75R16 on stock JKU?

Sorry if this is a repeated thread. I couldn't find one with the exact situation I have. I just bought this 2013 JKU and I can't stand having a stock Jeep but I can't really afford a lift right now. So without a lift, I want to stuff some 265/75R16's under it with XD Series Addicts. Was wondering if anyone had pics of a similar modification? Also, any rubbing issues? I already know I'm not going to be able to do a lot of articulating without hitting the fender flares. I'm hoping the backspacing from the addicts will prevent any rubbing in the inside.

<- 285/70-17 on 17x9 XD Rockstars on a stock JKU, just for reference. No rubbing, but in all honesty it has only seen mall crawling.

Not your exact situation, but close.

I've got that exact same size tire in Firestone Destination AT, but mine are mounted on Procomp 52 steel wheels. That size set up will work fine.

The pic below is about a week after I bought it with no leveling kit, no spacers, nothing at all. That's changed now and I need bigger tires.

You're fine with that. I'm running the 265/70/17 on the stock 17" wheels that come on the Sport S package, and the 2012 Rubicons with no problem and that's the same diameter as the 265/75/16. It's also the same size tire roughly as the OE ones on those wheels. Actually they're .4" smaller diameter than the stock 255/75's. If you go over 32" diameter that's when you might run into fender rubbing or if you go over about 265 width you might start rubbing the air dam or other suspension components with the wheel fully turned.

I love the way your rig looks with that wheel/tire set-up.
Would you share exactly what wheel size, offset etc. you're running with the Firestone 265/75R16s?

Thanks

Don't forget guys the Sahara comes standard w/255/70/tires with 18" rims. They are close to 33" in dia and never been a problem. Been fine on moderate off road excursions... just change standard "steps" for "rock rails", that's a must!

Have fun, drive safe!

Yeah, after doing more research I realized that 285/75's had more of the look I was looking for. Got the wheels and tires about two weeks ago. Love them!

Did the 285/75 affect your gas mileage or the power? I want to go with 285/70-17 but with the automatic and stock 3.73 gearing, not sure of the affect it will have.. Any input??

minimal on both mpg and power and I have 3.21's jku. I read on here so many times about lack of power that I started with 245/75-16's and had no power or mpg issues so then went to 265/75-16's and no issues so decided to step up to 285/75-16 and no issues again. I like the look of the 285's so much better that if I lost 1 or 2mpg I don't care. I still get ~20 mpg on highway and never less then 16mpg in town hand figured.

As far as 3.73's and the 3.21's you have in your jku this is a similar set up? Know nothing about the diff. gear ratio's.. Thanks for the advice it's very helpful, I like the look of the 285's as well.

I had the stock 225's and 3.21 gearing. Lost about 3 mpg and some power, not bad though. From what I here, if you get 285's with the 3.73 that comes on an automatic you don't really lose anything. It's if you go to 35 inch tires that you'll want to regear to at least 4.10.
