    Rub where, on the fenders or on the shock towers?

    245/70s are available in a few tires as well.

    they will rub on the front fender wells...when you turn the wheels slighty to full lock they will rub. i know on the front a 245 75 16 will rub on the pinch weld.

    a 245/70/16 is a wider tire not taller so that might work. not really sure though. you could try a 235/70/16 if you're going to keep your Liberty at stock height. otherwise some kind of lift will be needed to fit those 245/75/16 tires. i ran a 265/75/16 MT tires with a Daystar lift kit for 2 weeks max. rub alot when making turns. now i run a set of 245/75/16 BFG KM2's with both front and rear bumpers trimmed and without the pinch weld pounded down. works perfectly fine for me and looks good too. hope that helps.

    The fender wells on the KK might be larger, but I would still choose a 245/70/16 if you're not going to be lifted soon.
