Tire sizes for 2008 sahara with 2 in lift

Just 2" lifted my 2008 sahara 4d. Thinking about 285/65/18 Goodyear silent armor with ION rims. All the online stores state the tire is not the right fitment because it is not OEM? Will these tires fit without much problems?

1.2" wider and .5" taller (.25 rise at the axle) from the stock 255/70/18 http://www.1010tires.com/TireSizeCal...?action=submit
1mph diff for the speedo.
Maybe a slight rub at steering-lock. Depends on your wheels n back spacing.
You did say "much" though huh?
The main thing would be weight. Big difference between P-metric and LT tires.

A 285/65-18 is basically a 33x11.50 tire and will fit easily with a 2 inch lift unless you pick a wheel with a really weird width and backspacing. I have a 2 inch lift and am running a slightly wider 305/65-17 (33x12.50) tire using a 9 inch wide wheel with 4.5 inches of backspacing.

I'm running 285/70/17 basically 32.8 ish x 11.5. I have plenty of room for up to 33x12.5.. no lift and no rub whatsoever on 08 sahara jku. This is on a 4.5 backspacing wheel
