I am getting ready to do a level kit on my FJ and was wondering what the largest tire size is that I can run after the lift without rubbing the wheel wells. I am hoping to run 285 70 17's if I can. Thanks in advance.
You should be able to get the 285s w/o any rubbing issues.

285 should be safe. Some people have rubbed with 285's though. Depends a little bit on the geometry of your alignment and how it is currently set. Regardless, get an alignment after you install these tires.
After many hours of reading the only 285s that run a chance of rubbing are the heavier lugged mud tires and even that is rare with your two inch lift. This is also taking in to consideration your wheel choice. With the stock wheels you should be quite safe....And don't forget that when you get them all on and aligned.....WE WANT PIC's???????

Dont mean to thread hijack here, but to continue in a similar vein...
I'm about to confirm an order for Cepek FCII's in 33x12.50 R16, planning on an OME lift, so approx 2". But starting to panic now that they might rub too much, given the squareish shoulder on the Cepek's.
Maybe I shoulda gone with 11.50's?????

Max tire size depends what brand tires you get, what rims you are going to use and last but not least how you drive it.
Most of the fellows seems to have no problems with that size so I think you should be ok.
I managed to get my stock tires to rub with stock suspension and now I have OME 3" lift with 285/75 16 Cooper ATR's and having rubbing problems. Or actually it is not a problem, they just rub and that's it.
Reason for this could be related to bump stops which might not be able to handle the heat over here. Of course the pace when driving on the dunes is faster than driving on the other terrain.
