Yeah. . . it's pretty close. I have that size on my '07 with the stock rims ('till tomorrow. . . see other thread) Not all tires are exactly the same dimensions however, my Toyo A/T's fit without a lift, but rubbed the upper A-arm slightly at full crank. I put a 2.5" leveling kit on and guess what? They still rubbed at full crank. Apparently, from what I've read on this forum, 1/4" spacers on the front eliminate this issue with the stock 20" rims, but I just got used to never turning the steering wheel all the way to full stop, and ran the tires for 50,000 miles with no problems.

. . . your experience, using a different tire, may be different but a spacer and a leveling kit is probably a good idea.
