For those that didn't read the "spare tire Q. post...) I orderd the 7189's 16' procomp wheel with 35" BFG's. I was going to order 35" Procomp tires but they were backorderd until middle of Feb. (I will be in a 24/7 school at that time. the guy swore by BFG's A/T $10 more /tire, but I won't complain.

Sorry for the crappy pics...

Finally new Tires/Wheels. Stepped down to 17" V-tech wheels (Procomp 7189 look alike from Discount Tire) and biggest tire we could fit without a lift: BFG KM2 285/70/17. They are pretty massive and actually touches that plastic skid plate at the front corner at full back up. Probably need to cut that back a little bit to stop the headturn in the parking lots. Any ideas on tools to use? Handsaw?





//Cheers

I just used a little dremmel. Doesnt take long at all and really easy to do. I notched out right to the part where it does down from your bumper ( if that makes sense) that little extra lip is what your hitting on, so notch that and you'll be fine. I have the same sized tires and a 2.5 bb. And since i cut that little but i have no rubbed.

That's what I was thinking. How far back did you trim it? It looks like I could get away with an inch or two or did you do the entire 3-4 inches to match up where the lip sort of sits if that makes sense? If you get a second could you snap a pic?
