Hey all - I tried scavenging through the threads to see if I can find the answer, but I could not see anything. What is the smallest rim/largest tire that I would be able to fit on the 2009 limited to avoid rubbing? I came across an IG post that the guy was running 15x8, but could not figure out the tire size that would correlate... I was thinking maybe 235/65/15 or 235/75/15 but want to avoid rubbing. I know, probably a dumb question, but I am not mechanically inclined when it comes to automotive. Thank you in advance - I appreciate everything that this group has to offer.

The smallest that fits is a 16 inch wheel. The 15 inch wheel will probably make contact with the caliper. The rubber will not rub in your case since 235 width is within range and the diameter of 235/75/15 is only 28.9 which is only 1/2 inch higher then the stock 17 inch tires.

Thank you, DL175. What would you reccomend for tire size on a 16 inch wheel? 235 or 245? 65 or 75?

I was also thinking about getting the ReadyLift kit as well. Not sure how much that would change your answer.

I would go with 235x70x16. If you go with a lift you can go with 245 in a 17 inch.
Thinking 245 or 255/70/16 with the lift. I think 255 might be pushing it as far as avoiding any rubbing, but would fill up those wheel wells a bit more. Think I would get lucky enough to make that happen?

No one have used 255 probably because 245 is the maximum limit. Just remember you need a certain minimum width for your wheels for a 245 tire.
