Wow good luck with that. Most people have to trim a bunch of plastic and also chop their cab mounts just to fit 285's.

There's no way 315's will clear the uca's with 5" backspacing.

if u run spacers they could work, but will run into rubbing issues at full lock cuz of the tire sticking out. i once had a 4.75bs rim with 305's no rubbing but i have a 6" lift

Yeah I read his mods under the avatar. I'm not positive what will or will not work with LT as well but common sense says there is a lot more room for bigger and wider tires. But then again, I can be completely wrong.

There are no mods under your avatar when you're surfing from your phone

I have the XD Cranks with a 5 BS and 285/70/17 Duratracks. I had to trim the inside corners of each fender well, remove the flaps and trim the black plastic in the front of the wheel well. I'm also going to end up doing the cab mount chop, since it rubs in reverse when going over bumps. Aside from the cab mount, it was all really easy and cant be seen unless you stick your head in there to look.

Vi, you have the Engage LT... you can fit the 5" backspace since your arms are over 4" out...

but, if running a race spindle, or even gussets, it may end up a tight squeeze...

personally, i think you should look at 4.5" or 4.6" backspace...

Chris Socalrunner may still have a brand new set of nice black alloys in 4.5" backspace that he is planning to return for another set...

also, Chris at the shop is planning to sell his black 137s and those are 4.6" backspace...
