285/70-17 With No Lift (Future Lift)

I blew a tire the other day so i'm goin ahead and pickin up a new set of BFG A/Ts, just trying to decide on a size. I have full intentions of putting Billies on, but for the moment its tires. If i put 285's on now, how bad will it be till i get the Billies? Or should i just stick with the 265's

ps. 2010 TRD Sport, keepin stock rims

You will need wheel spacers and a 2.5" lift minimum. THEN you will have trim and possibly chop your cab mounts.

where does the rubbing occur? like constant? or only at full turn? If i have to deal with being a little cautious for a month, that isn't a big deal

Without a lift I imagine it would rub plastic even on moderate turns.

And without wheel spacers the tires will constantly rub the ucas

Just get 265/70/R17s if you are gonna get a new tire.. 285s require at least 2.5 of lift, new wheels with at least 4.5 BS or wheel spacers if you just wanna run stock wheels...

I say throw the spare on, buy the lift now, and then buy the new tires when you can afford them.

They are treadwrights, so they might be a little bit larger than the intended 265/70//17. I put them side to side with my 265/65/17 and they were significantly bigger. maybe in between 32's and 33's.
