Based on my 2.5” lift and width of my ridge grapplers (about 3/4” narrower than what you are going) I would say you will be fine. I could most likely run a 12.5” wide tire without spacers on factory wheels. My diameter is slightly smaller and I need a spare tire relocation bracket so I would plan that as well.

What current size are you running now?

285/75/17 ridge grappler just because I wasn’t sure and had a set of Rubicon wheels. I think my tires are about 11.3” wide and I have plenty of room with the lift. I would be comfortable running a wider tire on factory wheels. I stayed narrow so I could also air down a bit more without worrying about popping a bead on the trails.

Can you post a picture so I can see what it looks like on your jeep

What size lift you running? And have you flexed and full lock and no rub?
EVO 2.5 budget boost. No rub on full lock left/right/forward/reverse. I've only had it on a snowly, slightly bumpy road so far so don't know full flex. I suspect definitely if you disconnect but I think connected it'll be fine or at worst barley rub.
