    Hey guys, what is the maximum tire size that will fit with a 2" lift. I'm looking at 275 55 20. what have you guys found to fit best without any shaving or rubbing?

    30.5" diameter, 9.65+/- wide will work lifted or not.
    No way an almost 32" diameter, and an almost 11" wide tire will fit on the Nitro with out MAJOR mods. Even then it will be iffy. Lifted or not.
    The problem is how the fenders drop almost straight down, front and rear of the tire.
    Have a look at my tires and see how close they are.
    30.5" diameter, 9.65" wide on a stock offset rim.

    Right behind the plastic at the rear of the front wheel well, is a pinch weld, and your floorboard.

    I know from past experience people say certain tires won' fit and I never had an issue. So with the 2 inch lift your saying 30.5 is max?

    I have 265/70r17's on mine with a 2.5" lift, tires are 31.6" o.d. I had to trim the plastic inner fender well liner with a razor knife and no rubbing.
