LR UCAs and Bilstein 5100s

I just ordered LR UCAs and i am going to set my bilstein 5100s at 2.5 and i was wondering if i will need extended brake lines and should i be able to fit 285s with no scrubbing?????

No

Depends on the wheel backspacing but even then usually no

Don't worry about the brake lines, you will be fine. But u will have to trim like hell to fit 285's with 2.5" of lift. I have coilovers up front set up to 3" and am running a 285/17 with 4.5" backspackspace wheel and still had to trim ALOT...But it will work

You should install everything and then see where you rub before you start trimming anything. Your front flaps will have to go and the plastic thingy in the front of the fender.

I'm running 285 KM2's and didnt need to trim anything. I don't rub at full lock and flex at all. I only had to unscrew and remove flaps.

Yup. I needed extended brake hoses on the rear, but not the front.

Steve's thread may help you gain some clearance without a lot of trimming.

Tire width could still require some trimming.

I run a Goodyear DuraTrac in 265/75-16 on OEM wheels without rubbing. You can look up tire specs on TireRack and see the tread width for different sizes. The tread width in 8.5" and it comes close to catching a few things as the steering is turned. My guess is any 32" tire wider than 9" will rub something at full steering lock.

What this guy said. Its a taller tire than the 285/75 and not so wide that you have to hack everything up. I am getting mine installed on Monday so if I remember I will post pictures and you can see what they look like for yourself. I am running the same lift. Billies at 2.5 and 2 in AAL in the rear.

Post back here. I'm considering 255/80/17 in cooper S/T Maxx. I assume I can fit those on stock sport rims with an OME 885 coils and dakars.

Yep, I believe that there are even people running that tire on stock suspension with removed flaps.

When I get them on I will get back in here and post pics. A friend I work with is running them on a 1st gen with billies cranked up in the front and OME leafs in the rear and I think all he had to do was hammer in some pinch welds(I don't think 2nd gens have to worry about that as far as I can see on my own truck.)

Cooper Discoverer S/T MAXX: LT255/80R17
Load E
Approved Rim Width: 6.5" - 8.5"
Measured Rim Width: 7"
Overall Diameter: 32.8"
Tread Width: 8.15"

I'm surprised they don't list a weight. Some people have gotten away without trimming for narrow 33" tires, but most have to at least cut some plastic.

255/85 R16 Owners Experience - Same diameter as what you're considering, and worth a look if you're concerned with how that size worked for others.
