Falken Wildpeak AT3W P285/70R17

its seems these tires get good reviews for their price. My question is anybody running them on stock rims without spacers? Do I need spacers to make these fit my 13 JK without lift?

Normally, yes, you'll need spacers to run 285/70 on stock wheels. You'll be likely to have suspension rub without them.

If you're not completely set on 285/70s, might I suggest looking into 255/80-17? It will be the same height as the 285 but over an inch skinnier. Normally fits perfectly with no spacers needed, if you're into a little bit skinnier look...Just throwin' it out there.

actually the 255/80 is slightly taller altho not much 33.1 to 32.8. taller is better when it comes to tires.

^True, I meant to put "about the same height".

As above, the 255/80's are a great fit for a stock Jeep.

Thanks all for the input. Will probably go the spacer route.
