I’m loving the look of the 245/65R17 tires on the BB (with standard suspension)! I have seen various reports of no rubbing (thanks for sharing!), but I’m wondering if anyone has put a BB with that tire size through its paces off road yet.

Without the confidence that it won’t rub while doing moderate off road/trail driving, I am thinking I’ll play it safe with 235s.

Thanks in advance!

I am bound to do it sooner rather than later. I live in an area with plenty of sandy/gravel back-roads and have some spots to do creek crossings and other bits and pieces. I am also looking for the best place to get some Falken WildPeaks in that size and maybe have them "buy back" the Continentals for a bit to offset the new tires. When that happens, you better believe I will tell everyone if its good to go or if the 1" lift/level is needed - LOL
