Stock rims

Ok I know this has probably already been ask and answered but will ask again. Finished teraflex 2 inch leveling kit and getting ready to go with new tires. Question is I am keeping the stock rims original tires are 255/75R/17, will 285/70R/17 be a problem? Any help would be apprieciated.

Your answer is in the Stickys.

Short version, they probably rub without spacers or aftermarket wheels with proper back-spacing.


If you plan to run quick-disco's, they will rub when flexing. Trimming your fenders or running flat fenders will help.

Thanks for the reply, so with after market wheels is 4 1/2 backspacing correct?

I have 285/70/17's, wheels have 5" BS.

They didn't hit anything with just the leveling kit, or the 2" lift kit.





Also, there are plenty of tires that size in the 'D' load range, and they ride fine.

Okay got the tires on. Stock wheels no back spacing, Nitto Terra Grappler's 285/70/17, 6ply. Tried the turning radius and all good with no rubbing. Very pleased with the results.
