Another wheel/tire size question

I have an '09 Tacoma 4x4
5100's set at 2.5"
Rear TSB with 5th AAL
17x8.5 wheels, 4.25 Backspace, 0 offset

Can I fit 285/70/17 on my truck without rubbing?

Thanks!!!!!!!!!

No, you cannot

You will need to trim your inner fenders as well as possibly the cab mount chop.

Would it be major trimming or just a little?

With my wheels and tires in my specs below, I rub the front fender slightly and also rub the chassis on sharp turns. Given I have less offset and a narrower tire, and you have a slightly longer offset and a wider tire, you may experience something similar.

Having said all that, my rubbing is only minor and I haven't bothered to trim anything.

It should be minor from what I have heard. I do not know from personal experience, but I have done a ton of reading on here. You should be trimming and not "cutting" your inner fenders... I will have my lift here in a month or 2, so I will find out from personal experience here shortly!

Yes yours are a different size. I don't mind doing a little trimming but want to avoid cutting a bunch out. I've done some reading but i'm finding it difficult to search these exact specs where my question is answered.

Thanks.

Well ... I bought some 285/70/17 BFG All Terrain TA KO's today. I hope to get them installed this week. I'll let you guys know about the trimming and I'll post pics if anyone is interested.
