Hi I know it has been talked about quite a lot but is that possible on my 2017 touring to go with those tires with no lift ? Geolander AT g015 with my OEM wheels.... I know some say there is some rubbing but where it is ? and is it at extreme condition .... when off roading ? if there is someone with this setup with no lift it would be great to see some pictures... :)

Yes, in my non expert but semi-experienced opinion, they will work fine. I had that same size (but Hankook Dynapro ATM) on my '14 for a few months and really liked them. They rubbed when I was fully loaded going over big dips and bumps and when reversing down my gravel driveway. The rubbing was in the rear on the rubber liner. Nothing major though. I took my tires off due to adding a 1" lift and massive rubbing. I didn't want to add a rear spacer to correct the alignment so I went down to 225 65 17 G015's and am selling my 235's. I'm happy with the change but going from stock to the 235's was a huge difference. Good height difference and feel. Steering felt a little funky too.

Hi thanks. You had major massive rubbing once you did the 1 inch lift ? more rubbing after the lift so lifting is not helping on tire sizes..

from what I was able to get about sizes the handcook are 9.5 inch wide and the Geolander are 9.3 inch wide so a little smaller which should help !
