    got some new tires installed. I went with the Yokohama Geolander M/T G003 225/65/17 and to quote the tire installer "it looks like a jeep now". They are installed on the stock wheels. I have the 1.5" Teraflex lift and the Eibach pro lift springs installed, no pinch seam mod and no rubbing. very happy with the look. waiting to see how much it effects the gas millage. I was getting 25.6 average with the stock tires.

    Update on Gas mileage: still reads 25.6 average after about a month with the new tires.
    Checked the speed with 2 different apps and both read 1 MPH faster than the speedo at 50 MPH and 2 MPH at 70
    I put about 800 to 1000 miles on them so far. They are definitely louder than the stock tires but not as loud as most mud tires.
    I forgot to mention that I also have 1" wheel spacers. Thought I would mention this because any wider spacer I think the front tires would rub at the back. Not rubbing now but it is pretty close when the wheel is at full lock.
