depends on the width of the tire and the backspacing of the wheels. I have factory Rubicon wheels (5" backspacing) with 265/75-16s mounted up. They are a little over 32" tall and 10.5" wide or so. My tires rub at about 95% lock and they also rub the flares in the back under flex. If you have less backspacing, you won't rub turning but you probably will rub on the trail, especially with the sways unhooked.

They will fit, but you will rub the flares going over curbs and some speed bumps, and offroad for sure if you flex at all...If you trim your flares you'll have fewer rubbing problems. Make sure the backspace is at most 4.5"... If it's more they'll rub. Swampers are loud as all get out, and will probably suck in snow and rain, and definitely suck on ice. As long as you're prepared for that, I think those are a much better choice than the JK wheels/tires you posted earlier... ;)

Get your local guys to match an online price if possible. And do go for the Tread Lightly - Home rebate if you buy GY tires... It can be used with any other rebate...:)
