my question is can i fit a 285/70/17 tire on the back door of the fj with out any problems or will wil the tire rub on the top of the bumper.

i dont want to go waist $$$ buying a spair and it turns out to be my living room table base :cheers::cheers:

You'll be able to fit it on the back without issues. I haven't heard of issues with tires up to 305. Not sure of 315 though, it's gotta be very close.

Check out the tire size calculator posted in the sticky at the tire section of the forum.

2.54 cm in 1 inch

285mm/25.4mm = 11.22" wide tire

11.22"x 70% (which is 0.70) = 7.85" tall side walls.

(7.85x2[for each side wall]) + 17"rim = 32.7" tall tire


This is how to calculate tire size from metric into inches, which is more desired from offroaders.

I have 295 on mine with no issues...about 1/8inch between window and about 1/4 between bumper.....think my 295x70x17 works out to 33.1 or 33.2

you will be fine.

Keep in mind that just because a tire says 285 doesn't mean it is exactly 32.7 or that a 33 is exactly 33. It maybe a 33 is actually 32.4" in diameter.

I have the stock lugs on the alloys and acorn style gorilla lugs in 12x1.5mm on my pro com steelies.

those in a 285 fit without body mount chop on mine. Tincan runs them and says he has a little rub a full turn. Only difference between our rigs is i have OME lift.
