Question 285/60/18 on 18X9 wheels questions

Hi Guys, I just installed 5100's and 1.5 AAL's and would like to run 285/60/18 on 18X9 wheels. Is anyone running this combo and what backspacing do you have.

I would love to see pix!

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

Chris,

Looks just as I hoped it would, GREAT!

Do you like the Nitto's?

I love them! I used to run BFG's exclusively, And when the Nitto's came out, they asked me to try a set. I did and I put them thru every test I could think of, and they were better than the BFG's in every way (for me, anyway). I have run the Nitto Terra Grapplers ever since, on all of my trucks that see dirt.

I just mounted my new set of Nitto's 285/65/r18. prior to that install i had the Nitto 285/60/r18. I like the bigger size and the rubbing is exactly the same. I have the 2.5 inch spacer lift with rear aal and 4.5" backspacing (same wheels as Chris4x4 but black) and i only experience minor rubbing when backing up with wheels turned all the way. Hope this helps
