Anybody running 305/70/r17's w 2.5in lift?

Anyone running 305/70/R17's with a 2.5 in lift? Looking at the GY w Kevlar MT's in this size. Would love to have a pic of any tire this size to see the fender to tire gap. Thanks in advance.

I will be in about 2 weeks. If no one else posts pics, I can then. I have 2.5" TF spacer lift, which I will be scrapping and replacing with PolyPerformance, but the tires will be on first--same 305/70/17 MTR/K's on factory 17's with Spidertrax spacers.

315/70/r17 on mine. I did have to tear off that plastic guard on the front bumper. I guess you could cut it to make them fit.

The front bumper is getting canned anyway. I'm putting a Rock Hard front bumper on.

That's one clean job on those cut fenders. What did you use to cut em with? I've seen fenders cut before and the edges look like a pit bull nawed on em. Your fenders look great.

Please post pics with your new MTR/K tires. If you can get a side shot while the JK's on level ground that would be great. There is not many tire choices in this size. After doing the math, I think it's going to look perfect with the 2.5 lift. Congrats on the new tires. Have heard nothing but positive feed back about the Goodyears w Kevlar. Thanks in advance.

Okay--will keep you posted. We had a full fleet of these tires when they first came out and we love them! We had the 285/70/17 size, which I also re-ordered for another Jeep. Just found out those are coming in Tuesday, but they still have not been able to locate ANY 305/70/17's.

Here's a pic of 315/75/r17's with 2.5" lift.


This setup worked well enough, although I did start to beat the rear fenders off with the tires under full articulation (extended bump stops would have prevented that.) Here's a more recent shot with the fenders trimmed


Forgive the "lawn shots", it does help to see how it sits level though.
