Hey so im pretty new to the whole after-market scene, but I've finally gotten together enough flow to turn my FJ into the animal it deserves to be.

So Im looking to throw on some BFG AT KO tires on my stock 17in alloy rims.
I'd like to upgrade the tires first but I want to get size 285/70/17 on there. However, I have come to the conclusion from previous threads that this size will not work without some kind of lift right?

So my question is it worth it to have some spacers installed to use those size tires? I only plan on having the spacers until i get the money for a 3" revtek lift in the future, whereby at that time I would have the spacers removed.

Any input would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks,
Dan

It's really your call. You already know what you need to do, you just need to figure out whether it's worth it to have spacers now and switch to coilvers later. If you don't NEED the tires now, I'd wait until the funds are available and do the lift and tires at the same time.

Altogether it would be cheaper to invest in a good lift kit and tires at same time, instead of getting spacers than a C/O kit That would cost you that much more for the spacers than you could be putting into some new C/Os. In the end its entirely up to you what you want to do. :D

Thanks for the help.

Ive put some thought into what you guys have said and I agree, it would definetely be a better investment to do it all at once. And I think thats what Im going to end up doing. Cant wait!!
