I was running 1.5 inch spacers with the Trailhawk stock rims (17X6.5, +40mm offset) with BFG KO2 225/65R17 and updated to the Method Racing MR701 (17X7.5 +30mm offset) with BFG KO2 245/65R17 and 1.5 inch spacers.

I can't imagine going any larger than a 245/65R17...

I'm using a 4" lift (AVID 2.5″ Renegade Lift System and ATP's Renegade/Compass 2.0 Coil Set), 1.5" spacers, pinch weld and fender liner modification and still have tire touch on the rear of the front tires. Nothing major, but I'm still going to have to cut more pinch weld out of it.

BUT, I do like the way thigs turned out.

nice like the setup. i was thinking about 1.5 teraflex with eibach springs and beilistine 1 inch strut to keep cv angle good hows your cv angle with that set up
If I read your combination correctly, you will be right at a 4" lift also. The spacers for the rear will keep your angles within specs. On the front you will want to watch the half shaft and the bottom of the strut for contact. The Bilstein struts do not have the lip on the bottom that the stock strut have, so you should be okay.

Do a little research on those struts. If you are looking at the Bilstein 5100 which have the height adjustment; some folks are bending those at the spindle mount when driving off road.

Good luck with your build, keep us posted... with pics. :)
