I just had 265/70/17 mounted on stock rims. Cleared the bolt, no rub on the weld. Slight rub on the frame at full lock. No worries though. By the way, I'm runnin' a two inch lift.

I rock 245/75/17 Hankook RF-10. I Think the truck looks great, and I would rather have a taller tire vs a wider tire. little bit more lift and they are better for winter and the amount of snow we get. I wasnt going to spend the money on spacers to push out stock wheels. If I want wider tires in the future i'll get aftermarket wheels with the correct backspacing.

Well, for what it's worth - I use 255/75/17's but with 1/4'' spacers.

Same tires here- LT 245/75/17, for the same reasons. Gave me just over an inch of extra ground clearance, and doesn't rub, even at full lock. These are 31.5" in diameter, vs. 29.5" on the stock Fortera's I took off. No spacers or lift. I did trim the bolt, but left enough to still get a wrench on it- really didn't need to do it though- I have one fat finger's width between the bolt and the tire. Probably could have gone 255/75/17 in this tire with the stock setup, but wanted to keep good snow and ice traction.

I have to make a correction I have 265/70/17 on stock rims w/ 2" BB lift. No pinch weld, no spacers and NO RUB. I thought they were rubbing a little at full lock, however after driving for a day or two I realized it was my ESP kicking in. Should work properly after getting the computer flashed with new tire size. Until then I have simply been disabling the ESP everytime I start the truck. Also, I did trim " the bolt ", but I didn't have to. There was a bit of clearance but I felt better cutting it. It was not needed though. So 265/70's do fit on the stock rim without any mods. Also, in case any one is curious, they are Firestone Destination AT's. By the way. As far as I can tell, the people who had to fold the pinch weld are not using stock rims. Whether you use spacers or new wheels, as you increase the offset, you also increase the wheel travel. So the further you get from the "bolt", the closer you get to the wheel well (pinch weld) when turning. Just something to think about. Besides, I like the stock rims too. Powder Coated black of course.

"Powder Coated black of course."

anyone tried the spray-on bedliner that can be bought at advanced auto?

I've used their rim paint and it worked GREAT and was super-hard (7 days to cure).

Was thinking of doing grill, wheels to match with either coating...

OMG - that would be incredibly hawt... I can already imagine that looking pretty rugged. I don't think it would look appropriate on a khaki WK like mine. But You've got me considering ideas..

I run 245/75R17 BFG All-Terrain's with no lift and no rubbing. I had to cut the bolt though, but it looks and rides great! And I'll be throwing the Bilstein's on all the way around as soon as they ship from Germany, so that should add an extra 1/4" of lift, maybe more...

I would think the texture of the bed liner on wheels would cause mud to stick and cake on. Other then that Bed Liner is pretty tough stuff. I do remember seeing a guy who sprayed his entire F-250 with Rhino Liner. Looked O-K. A little extreme.

So wait, 2 inch ome without spacers or pinch weld on stock fits only 245 at max? I was thinking same thing I like the stock jeep wheels was thinking 255 should be ok but if you have 245 then don't think it would be good idea to get 255...
