Yes, you should. I think this is the setup 4Wheelin4Banger has/had. Did you put the spacers up front after your skids or are you waiting for your front armor, 4Wheelin?

Are you talking about the spacers on the coilover?

Yes, the 1/4'' or 1/2'' top plate spacers that some people run with OME 885's. Are you talking about wheel spacers?

They'll fit with no lift, but plastic trimming is necessary. From what I understand the trimming with a lift is pretty much the same.

So with more clearance you have to trim the same thing? That doesn't make since.

I did say "pretty much the same."

It makes sense to me. The lift total applies to the clearance at the top of the tire. With a smaller lift the fore-aft spacing doesn't really change all that much. Getting in there and cutting a 1/4 inch is going to take as long as cutting an inch. If you really want to get specific the different tire profiles will change that too. The rounder profile of KM2s will require less than a squarer tire.

Basically I was saying that you're going to have to trim some no matter what. Unless you're getting a bigger lift, in which case you're cancelling out the primary reason to get this size - biggest tire with least lift.

3" with 885s on my 4Banger with 255 BFG KM2s.
Sliders lost me 1/4" front & rear.
Skids lost me another 1/2" up front.
Didn't go wheeling so I don't know if they would have rubbed.
Added 1/4" spacers to regain 1/2" of what I lost & am now at 2 3/4" front & rear.

Just checking in! I am enjoying the not-so-new anymore tires. They have gotten louder as they have worn in. I am still on eibach coils up front and the tsb rear 4 leaf pack in the rear. I still have all of my mud flaps and I haven't trimmed anything. My truck is a daily driver. I don't off-road. Yet. I plastiderped the lower bumper so my skid plate shows a little more and I added eyelids. So more pics!

99% of Mid travel lifted Tacos and stock trucks have the same up travel AKA: Stuff.

Putting a lift on your truck doesn't mean a big ass tire won't eat your fender off.....just means it's less likely to happen unless/until you flex it AKA: wheel.

Rear fender rub

I am running these 255/85/16 Toyo open Country MT's. Icon 2.5 RR on all 4 CORNERS 700# SPRINGS On the front and OME rear springs.

Does any one get fender rubbing on the front side of rear fender well? I only seem to get the rubbing when going up a very steel hill with full compression.

You mean the area where the mud flap attaches? If so yes it's the only place I rub at full stuff with KM2 255/80R17.

Same here, only in the rear at full stuff with the bed loaded and three dudes in the cab. The new expedition leaves should solve that.
