I assume the 255/75R17 Rubi take offs dont fit in the spare tire wheel well?


I am really trying to decide if its worth the extra trimming to go from a 245/70/17 to a 255/75/17.



Hows the power like on the freeway? What kind of MPGs are you getting?

No they don't fit at all in the well. Needed trimming on front bumper and I stuff them in the back when wheeling. I do lack a bit of power on the highway here especially when going uphill. I get about 12-14 hwy.

IMO, it's worth the triming to go to 255 or 265, I love the bigger tire look.

X2 I love my set up and only a little needed to be trimmed.

is anybody running the 3 inch IRO lift with KOR 3/4 inch pucks installed? If so I was wondering if you had to get 4 inch sway bar end links. Thank you.

Thank you for your response are you running the 3 inch sway bar end links in the rear or do you have 4 inch ones?
