I hear you...I'm not fond of wheel spacers, myself. Much better to simply get wheels w/proper backspacing, IMO.

You could also get some rubbing on your front suspension. Only way to fix that – without buying rims with the proper backspacing – would be to use wheel spacers. (I don't THINK you'd have an issue with the suspension rubbing with those tires, but you never know).

Here's a great thread to read about tires/wheels on stock JK's:

But my question to you guys is will a 265/75/R16 fit on a stock Sport JK without any rubbing issues?

Tire Fitment on Stock JK

I got my '12 JK on Tuesday night. Its a Sport with 225/75/R16 (29"x8.5") on plain wheels. Im wanted to go with a black alloy wheel, probably a M/T Classic II in black.

Any info would be appreciated, Thanks
