Rubicon Tire Question
 
Considering getting a Rubicon 10a. I like the wheels, however would like to place some 285/70/17 Duratracs on the factory wheels.

Can this work without spacers or will there be rub?

No. They will rub at full lock and when flexed/disconnected.

How about 265/70/17 Duratracs?

Also, how about the 285/70/17 Duratracs on AEV Pintlers with no spacers? No rub?

265s are fine, if a tick smaller than stock.

285s on Pintlers should cause no issues. My setup of choice (not that I have them, though).

My 285's rub at full lock on my 10a with no spacers. Why settle for a smaller tire?
