285/70/17?

Thinking of running these. I'm getting 2 1/2" front spacer and 2" rear block. I'm running 265/70/17 stock height. If I go to 285/70/17s will I have to worry about rubbing?

Yes you will need to trim if you go off road, maybe not if you don't.

You are going to have to trim and do a cab mount chop if you want to off road or at least be able to turn hard.

It is not really height that is going to be your enemy it is full turn that will be your issue. A lot of people seem to take off their mud flaps to help clear. Plus it all depends on backspacing and off-set of the wheel.

What you want to do with the truck?

There are a ton of threads around to get a feel for what it takes.

I'm not going to be doing hardly any off-roading. I'm just going for better look for the truck is all.

You'll still have to do some trimming since those tires are so wide. I am running 3" of lift and 255/85R16's and I managed to get away with not having to cab mount but I had to trim up the fender flares and back of front bumper quite a bit just for street driving.

What's the BS on your wheels? 16"x8"s?
With my 3" OME lift my 255/85/16 BFG KM2s on 1st Gen TRDs (16"x7" with 4.5" BS) don't rub (except twice a slight rub on the bump on the mud flap inside the wheel well if I bounce the front end real hard at full lock). No trimming & still running mud flaps.
