Default 30x10.5s on 2"?

Ive read that 30x9.5s will fit on the 2" lift, but would 10.5 work? Or would it rub on stock rims? If so, how much backspacing on a rim would i need?

I just put on a set of 31x10.50's on stock rims and have no problem. You can't go lock to lock with the turns , but other than that she's sweet with'em

Does it bump LCAs at full turn? Also, how bad is it really?

No bump just a rub. Keep in mind I've yet to do any trail riding, but they're sure as ***$ nice to drive on the four lanes

Stockers should be alright, but on turns they rub. Recommended BS for oversiezed tires is 3.75-4 Just depends on the wheel.

what is the stock backspacing? I also have the country edition rims, not the 5 spokes but the many small diamond spokes.

I'm fairly certain that all stock rims are 5.25" backspacing. That is what my stock 5-spoke ones were.

You don't need new wheels, simply adjust the steering stop bolts.

What are your opinions on wheel spacers? Some people are fine with them and other people hate them.
