    What can I run without rubbing? With a flattened pinch weld?

    245-70-16s if stock suspension , the wider Moabs will cause you some issues any bigger and not lifted
    Some run that size with Moabs but only tires I like to run on those wheels are 8 inch wide or wider, but then you need a lift

    I'll follow this up, Tom, I have a good stock suspension and found a local guy selling 4ea 5x4.5 16" Moabs. Would those work on my Liberty? wheels and backspacing are new to me.

    Thank you!

    They will not work, send them to me right away !!!!!!!!!!!!!

    ;) no they will work , bolt pattern wise etc, just tire size comes into play big time unlifted since they are 8 inches wide
