    after you decide on which brand and model of tires you want, check out the tire manufacturer's website to see if it's approved for a 9" wide wheel. some are and some are not.

    BFG AT KO 265/70/17 are not approved for a 9" wheel. On an 8" wheel you'll be ok. With 2" of lift, you're still stuck with the same size listed.

    fwiw, I have 17x9 Moto's & BFG AT's 265/70/17 installed as did another member I got the idea from (probably many more as well), Discount tire never told me 3+ years ago they aren't approved? I have close to 3" lift and they still slightly rub on the front mud-flaps at full turn.

    Check the tire manufacturers website. It will have the approved wheel sizes.
