That depends on if the 2" coil spacers are really 2" thick (on some kit's they're only 1-3/4"). that tire is 32.8 inches tall. It will fit but you'll be rubbing the fenders when you're doing anything more than mild offroading.

I've got a Skyjacker 2.25 inch coil spacer lift kit and I installed a 3/4 inch Isolator Pad in the front giving me 3" in front and 2.25" in the back. I have 32x11.50x15 tires. It does fine for me, but I respect my limitations. see the pics on my profile

thanks, i think ive got lots of room. I got 265 75 16 on it now and they really dont look right because there is a lot of space in my wheel wells. think i will try them if i have to get more clearance i will.

I went out and measured mine, it's 4.5" in the front and 5" in the back with the 32" tall tires.
