Getting new shoes on the TH and I like the idea of maximizing ground clearance, so thinking of going with A/Ts in 255/70R-17. I do plan to lift the Jeep, but I really need tires, now, and then need to drive out of town, so there is now time at present. I'm just wondering what issues, if any I am facing running 255/70R-17 vs. 245/70R-17. Has anyone experienced rubbing? Does the spare tire fit in the compartment? Anything else to consider? Streetability is still a concern. Is it worth the extra ground clearance, or is 245/70 the more sensible option?
