    From all the research I have done I'm pretty sure TH owners will be able to run a 235/65R17 with a one inch spacer to keep the tire from hitting the strut

    Im buying the 225/65R17 KO2 tires on saturday and being installed on saturday. do I need to do the pinch seam mod for this size tire ? I don't want to drive it home rubbing the entire time.

    Thank you very much for that step by step article. I'm going to try it tomorrow and see if it'll clear my 255 55 18. It rubs pretty hard when I turn completely other than that just barely rubbing.

    Rehashing an old post, 2015 Renegade Trailhawk

    I have the Avid 1.5" kit ready to be installed as soon as next week. I'm going to go with Atturo Trailblade x/t 235/65r17 on stock TH rims. The tires on your red Renny are 29.3", the Atturos are 29". Anyone know if I'll need to pinch mod? I do have Rocky Road outfitters bullbar and a Smittybilt 9.5k xrc winch on the front. I was thinking perhaps 1" supreme suspension wheel spacers, but I'm unsure and I've gotten mixed answers if I will need them.
