Sorry, the 285/75R17 will need a body mount chop, but other than that they will fit. If you're dead set against the chop, then 285/70R17 is the biggest you should go.
I also have the 265/70 Dick Cepek Mud Countrys with 1.25 Allpro spacers and take it offroad often. No problems whatsoever. :bigthumb:Soooo many things to consider. If I understand correctly, I can run 285/70/17's on my stock FJ rims,without a body mount chop? (I do have a 3" pro comp lift). I wont have any rubbing when off roading?
Now, if I want to add 1.25" spacers, will that size tire rub the body mount when trail riding?
I do not want to do the body mount chop if I dont have to, but I would like to widen my stance a little while keeping my stock FJ rims.
Does the 265/70/17 tires rub the body mount with 1.25" spacers?
Thanks for the great wheel/tire fitment guide!
Before the BMC, when I had the steering wheel fully turned in either direction, the inside rear of my tires would rub on that portion of the body which gets whacked off in the BMC - that unnecessary extension. Trimmed it back and now I have no rub during that same full turn.^just wondering what "slight rubbing" exactly was. Was it only hitting the body mount cover or would it actually contact the steel body mount itself. You're combo sits out about 1/2" further than a 285 on a stock wheel would as well. Thanks for any and all input guys.
Sorry to read about your divorce but congratulations for all those modifications you managed to pull off. Post pics of your rig when it's complete and of your soon to be ex-wife. JK on the wife :lol:As a heavy aircraft mechanic, and constantly delving into maintenance manuals and the illustrated parts catalogues, you generally have no leeway as to how a problem is addressed. As a professional mechanic and someone who has been in aviation for the nigh side of 30 years, your explanation of wheel dimensions, tires, and fitment issues, has raised you from plebocite 4X4 quasi hack dirt agitator, to a kindred spirit of the machine and one worthy of honorable mention and high praise! Because of you my wife is now filing divorce papers as I just dropped $3000 dollars on some sriously badass wheels and tires. (again, my congratulations on the divorce thingy, truly a stroke of genius!) I just installed a 3" OME set up on my 2007 FJ along with other tasty suspension goodies. Camburg stuff, Man-A-Fre stuff, ARB expensive stuff, All-Pro Offroad stuff, the ususal leap into the unknown and irrationally expensive. That part was easy, its the WHEELS AND TIRES that were causing me the loss of sleep. I have actually printed and posted your dissertation on our wall of fame at work as there are several other dirt agitators here who lie like beaten dogs about their 4X4 powess! Remind me to tell you about one drunken dirtfest up Fordyce Creek California where we winched our buddies jeep scambler 60 feet into a Douglas Fir, he still is seeking psychiatric help because of the horror! There are pictures! Again, thank you for taking the time to educate and refresh the most basic and important part of the 4-wheelers rig, his tires and wheels.
