You wanna know something sad. I had a 2002 Ford Exploder with a set of 265/75/16s with no lift and no rubbing. It is just not right that you can put a 32 inch tire on a stock Explorer and need 4" of lift to put it on a Jeep GC. Granted with its four wheel independent suspension it was limited off road compared to a GC but still Jeep should be better than Ford when it comes to leaving enough room for big tires.

The bigger picture is just measure for yourself or get the tire store to help. Not all 265/75R16 are the same true size. I have Maxxis Big horns and a Good Year Wrangler TD in the Same size the Goodyear is visibly smaller diameter.

True.. don't go by a tire size calculator, always go by the manurfacturers specs..

Well, I've been wondering about what I have planned for mine.


I too will have a 3" IRO lift and want to run 265/70R17 tires. I was thinking about Cooper Discoverer STTs for mine.


So when you guys talk about trimming, what all are you having to trim? I see a few posts about using wheel spacers, but that just spaces the wheels out and doesn't help with the diameter of the tire.

Sounds like a squeeze to me
