So...my Toyota dealership tried to fit my brand new 17" Konig Countersteer Offroad Type X's today, and ended up refusing to do so because they rubbed the front fender where the mud flaps bolt on. They showed me a video of them going from lock to lock and the inboard tread did in fact push the rear of the fender out quite a bit, till it let go and snapped back into place as the tires pushed past. They barely cleared the front of the fender, but sneaked past.
Sooo...my question is, do you guys think a 1.6" front lift (Eibach springs on 5100's) will give me enough clearance to fit the Countersteer's wrapped in 265/70/17's ? Would it be enough for the suspension to cycle through it's travel without making contact ? I don't think even removing the mudflaps (which I don't want to do) would have given enough clearance with the stock suspension.
The Konig's are 8 inch wide with a -10 Offset. I don't know what that works out to for backspacing but they sit farther out of the fenders than stock.
As a side note for anyone considering these rims, your stock lug nuts won't work, you'll need longer ones. Also, they had to use a thin walled socket to be able to fit between the nuts and the bolt holes, so you'd need to carry a socket with you in the truck in case of a flat.
Any help from the wheel and tire gurus would be appreciated. What a frustrating day...thought I was gonna be able to post pic's for you guys.
