They sound like a good fit and that rub stop looks well positioned. How did you re-calibrate the speedo?

There are a few CCF settings relate to tire size/radius/rolling diameter that you can change with am IID tool. I've tried getting my car perfect, and it's accurate up until about 83 MPH and then it starts getting skewed.

Hi, I have a 2015 LR4, which I wanted to take on Offroad trips. I moved to 18" Tuffant steelies which do not need spacers (they sell 2 versions, one with an offset). I use these with 265/65/18 KO2, and its been a great experience. Great ride, very little rubbing anymore (in the very beginning there was some at full lock). Also, I air them down to about 20 or less when going Offroad, and its been very pleasant.
Did you need to raise your LR4 to fit the 265/65/18 KO2's or just leave it stock?

I just got the Method 706's which have been confirmed by Method that they will fit my 2015 LR4. Now for the final decision do I get the 265/65/18 KO2's or 265/60/18 KO2's? I've read everything I can find on the forms and don't want to run a lift if I don't need to. Trying to keep the settings as close to stock as possible while getting the best tire for offroading. I have the Gap Tool. Suggestions?

You don't need a lift to run the 265/65 tires. In fact, the lift rods are universally a bad idea unless you are also running the SYA kit.

Anyway, the max tire size on a stock-ish LR4 is not affected by the lift; it's affected by the tires hitting the frame horns on a turn, and what you can do if worse comes to worst and the air suspension shoots craps and you drop you the bumpstops.

Without the SYA kit, 265/65 are the biggest you can run and still drive if you are on the bumpstops.

Those are good looking wheels. Like others have mentioned, 265/65/18 are a good size tire, the tallest tire, you can run in stock form. I'd choose that size over 265/60/18.
