265/70/17?

265/70/17's on a stock JKU suspension? Pretty sure it's ok bt I'd like confirmation from those who know before I order them. It's my daily driver so I can't really go too extreme even though I am probably gonna do a hockey puck lift soon too.

They are actually shorter than the oem 255/75/17 which are 32.06" while the 265/70/17 is 31.61" so they would fit no problem and they are only slightly wider than the 255's so you wouldn't need wheel spacers either.

The 2013 10A Rubicon runs that size tire as well and looks fine.

They are less than 1/2" shorter, but about 1" wider than stock. The exact size will vary a fraction of an inch depending on the manufacturer and exact tire. You'll never notice the 1/4" less ground clearance. In fact a set of factory tires with 30,000 miles on them will be shorter than the 265/70/17's when new. So there will be some overlap.

That size is much more common and less expensive options are available. The size I chose when the factory tires were worn out. I like them better than factory. Because of the extra width they appear a lot bigger than factory.
