JoeRaj Hi I am running 265/70R17 too on a V-tec off road wheels with 0 offset. I believe it is 4.75 BS. Not too bad looking.

265/70 17 on ATX Artillery

Here is my '13 JK with 265/70 17 - the ATX Artillery have a different backspacing than your stock wheels so they are pushed out a bit wider...

jasavak I saw some really nice looking 285/70/17 Nitto tires today on some of the Jeeps at the dealership today . They run a respectable 1.2 inches wider and 0.7 taller than a stock rubi wheel . Don't know if they would fit on the stock wheel though .

It's a popular size tire too, so it's easy to get. That's the size that came on my Dodge Cummins in load range E.

275/70r17 is another choice. Maybe harder to get, and a little larger in diameter. But it should fit without rubbing and only a little error in the speedo.

rox-n-mud I have a 12 Rubi with stock BFG AT's 255 75r 17's. I love the stock Rubi wheels. I want to keep the stock tire height of about 32 cuz I don't want to spend another hundo for a speedo recal. I do want a wider tire with same aggressive tread. Also I'd like to stay away from spacers, quite a pickle I'm in. If there is anyone in the whole wide world that could help I'd be thankful.
