Goodyear Wrangler Duratrac on stock wheels

OK, so I am thinking about putting Goodyear wrangler duratrac on my 2012 JKU and lifting with a AEV 2" spacer suspension system. My question is there something that I am not thinking of that I will need. Spacers or anything like that?

What size tire are you looking at, factory sized LT255/75R17, LT265/70R17, or something Larger?

I have a 2.5" Teraflex coil lift with LT265/70R17Es on my '13 JKU and I have no fit/clearance issues at full lock or at full articulation.

I have 285/70R17 Duratracs on stock wheels with spacer lift (leveling kit--2" front / 1" rear). Requires wheel spacers to prevent rubbing. I have 1-1/2" spacers, although less might work.

Although the JKUR 10A has a small lift from the factory, I was able to install 285/70-17 on stock wheels with minimal rubbing on the swaybar at full steering lock and only when turning right. One washer only was all that was needed to solve the rubbing...... can still perform a U-turn in a 2 way street with room to spare...

on my 2013 JKU I have 315/70/17 Duratracs with 2.5 inch Teraflex budget boost lift and spider trax 1.25 in wheel spacers with the stock wheels. have been running for 12,000 miles with no rubbing or issues. just remember to check the torque on the wheel spacers every so often.

I would like to run the LT325/65R18. What do you think?

You will definitely need wheel spacers if you are going to run the 325's on a stock rim and you might even have a problem getting a tire shop to mount the tires on the stock rims since the new tires are around 13 wide.

I have the 325 Duratracs on 9" aftermarket wheels and with a 2.5 lift I still manage to rub the front fenders when we are wheeling.

Ok, so I'm pretty new at this. How tall is a 325? I'm looking for a 33" tire.

I was in your shoes 2 years ago and discovered that the price for tires to fit my stock wheels was pretty high and that it was better price wise to get 15" wheels with the proper backspacing and tires to match.

Just something you should consider.
