Is it a bad idea to run 30x9x14 on all four tires? Going to be in rice fields

I've seen lots of guys running the same tire all around, may need a 1-2" spacer on the rears for them to track properly.

I run 30x9x14 in front and 30x11x14 in the back and no spacers. It drives nice on the road and in the muck and I don't walk behind to see if the front and rear tires line up.😉

im running 28 x 10 x 14s all the way around, they are a little narrow in the back and could use some spacers but it keeps the mud from getting too far up the sides so i leave it.  love my x comps, other than that they are little heavy.

I have a 2022 Defender HD 10 limited with 27 inch stock tires. I got a great deal on 30-10-14 tires and want to upgrade and place them on my stock rims. I don't want to install a lift and am wondering if anyone has had any issues. I realize the the size different in height from front to rear is minimal on stock rims. I also believe the front stock rims are 7 inches wide and the rear are 8 inches wide so tire mounting wont be an issue. I just don't want any rubbing in front. I see others on the forum have done so with success. I am just curious if the 2022 model will take those sizes. I see the 2023 comes standard with 30's and hope it wont be an issue. Has anyone done this. Thanks all

Some people seem to have rubbing, some don't.  If anything it will only be at full lock most likely.  If needed you could always stiffen up your shocks a bit to gain a little extra.

I believe the limited's are good to go with the 30's.  They came with the arched a-arms and I believe they are also a few inches forward from the early Defenders.

Thanks all appreciate it. I will update after I install them for all to learn from.

You can crank your stock springs to maximum (adjuster on the shocks) and that will give you some free lift without compromising the ride and will reduce the rubbing which might occur on uneven terrain but should be minimal.😉

No issues what so ever with the use of this size tire all around on my defender. No rubbing at all no lift. Just an update all.
