Rocky Road Outfitters 2.5” lift

IMG_0356.jpegIMG_0356.jpegI purchased the $895 RRO lift and had it installed today, another $800 bucks. It leveled it out and lifted it a little. I’m happy with that issue.

However, I purchased the lift because I wanted a slightly bigger tire. I went to discount tire to have my new Goodyear 275/55/20 Ultra Terrain AT tires put on. They don’t even measure 32s, actually 31.9”. They don’t even fit? WTH? They are completely pressed/stuffed against this silver piece. This picture is with stock size tires. Their website said I needed spacers to run 33s. I didn’t even go that big.

Not happy.

lol no matter how much "lift" you put on your vehicle you can't put a larger diameter tire. You are limited to the clearance of the spindle. A lift will allow for a wider tire so you have extra clearance from the tire to the body.

I think the only person you can be not happy with is yourself because this isn't some mistake by anyone else.

Their website even tells you exactly what will fit and how.



We often receive questions on tire sizing with any of our Jeep lifts…The answer is…. there is no single answer. Wheel size and spacing can make as much or more of a difference as tire size. The design of the WL spindle assembly makes it close quarters for oversize tire fitment. While our lift will create the vertical height you need at the fender and body, you will have to watch the top of the factory spindle for tire clearance. For this reason, we highly recommend installing your lift BEFORE buying your tires so you can confirm the fit at your tire shop on the front, before completing the tire purchase.

We tested a variety of tire sizes and found that a 33″ OD tire would fit ONLY with the addition of our wheel spacer system, which is included in our DELUXE suspension system.

Tried a 275/55/20 BF Goodrich and it fit with about 1/4” of knuckle clearance. Purchased them. I guess the Goodyear runs big or the knobby was too large.

1st pic is stock size but with Nitto Grapplers, 265/50/20.

2nd pic is the BF Goodrich KO2, 275/55/20. Measure 31.9”.

Your wrong. Certain 275/55 tires fit. The BF Goodrich KO2 did.

I'll repeat myself, you're limited by that spindle. It looks like with the right spacer though you can push the tire out further and probably go even larger.
Agree. You said you can’t put on a larger diameter tire. Spindle limits, but you can put on a larger tire without rubbing.
