Tire question

Will it rub won't it rub??

Picking up my Moab tomorrow. (2 Door soft top, 6-spd)
Thinking of going to 285/70 duratracs right away.
With out spacers or a lift will I ok on the road?
Too many threads saying no rubm a little rub, flares will be ripped off. etc......

Thinking I'll go 1.5" spacers and a Leveling kit. but the tires need to happen before i put to many on the stockers. Belle tire will buy the if under 500 miles, which for me is less than a week away!

Bright White 2 door soft top 6 speed MOAB..

The 285/65 18s on my 4dr Sahara rub at full steering lock. Currently running no lift or spacers.

I just don't turn the wheel all the way.

Yes, you will be fine on the road. You might rub at full lock though.
