2.5" teraflex coil lift w stock rubi rims/tires

Hi all
I apologize for asking this, I know there are a couple threads on this already. I did a search and read thru them. However, there were so many mixed answers and "if, ands or buts" that i kinda got lost on my application. So here goes again... i have a teraflex 2.5" coil lift w biltstein 5100s that im hoping to soon install on my 07 JKU with stock rubi rims and BFG MT's. Will those stock rims/tires rub with the lift installed without the use of spacers? Thanks for any help you guys can offer!!

We need to know what size tires. If you are going 12.5 wide then, yes they will rub without spacer.

Edit, if you are using the stock tires then, no.

Sorry bout that, but they are the stock rubicon BFG mud terrains (255/75 17) along with the stock rubicon rims. Was hoping to just run these till i can afford to upsize to 35"ers.

Just saw yer edit, ha ha... well thats what i thought and hoped, but in those other threads a few said the stock tires and stock rims will infact rub because of the new rear links, if I recall correctly...

i'm running the TF 2.5" coil lift kit on my 2009 JKUR.
The instructions said i would need wheel spacers if i plan to re-use the stock wheels. Reason is the longer rear sway bar endlinks mounted on the outside of the sway bar now hits the tire. Adding the wheel spacers pushes the tire away from the sway bar endlinks

Mine rub when using the stock tires. You need to run spacers in the back. Front is ok..

Correct about needing to run the spacers to clear the rear links.
I've seen a couple people running only rear spacers; I can see the difference....looks a little weird. Some people don't care. Try it and see what you think? It's your Jeep!
