Re: First time forum poster

Welcome from the UK.

Nice looking FJ.

I run 285/75 R16 (equiv size to the 285/70 R17) with no spacers or BMC just fine but 2” lift

Re: First time forum poster

285/70/17 should be good to go with no mods but 285/75/17 you'll probably get some rubbing.

Oh, and welcome!

Welcome!

I like your FJ, nice clean and classy.

IMO - skip the 285. The serve no purpose for the average owner other than looks and a lighter wallet.

Re: First time forum poster

I went with Cooper AT3 XLT 285/70/17 - getting them installed on Monday with Bilstein 5100s all around and a Daystar 1.5 rear coil spacer.

The shop said they've done the BMC before, but we'll have to wait until Monday to see if it's necessary.

From what I've seen here the 4th setting on the Bilsteins is the look I like, I'll post some pictures when it's all done.
