Re: Tires and Wheels

you will most likely need to chop the body mount known on here as a bmc. factors like wheel offset/backspacing play an important role also. i would say with that size wheel/tire comboin stock form you will rub. why so against lift? i have a 2010 that i drive 60 miles a day and did 3 in rough country lift. it still rides as good as stock and i will be running 285/70/17 firestone m/t on a 8.5 in rim

Re: Tires and Wheels

you will definiatly rub with that width I would go for about an inch skinnier.. unless you did a Body mount Chop like bill41672 stated..

I believe the 285/70/17 dont rub with out a BMC or Lift.. Can anyone confirm that?

Re: Tires and Wheels

I have that same size tire basically only on a 16" wheel and what I had to do was of course, do the body mount chop, and then I got wheel spacers so that I could have a wider stance and also so there wouldn't be rubbing on the upper control arm. But it's tough to say whether or not you can run this at stock height. I would think so but I would also consider posting this same question in the wheel/tire section of the forum

Re: Tires and Wheels

Step it down in side and try and have the alignment shop adjust it for maximum caster. Likely will clear the body mount if all goes well.
