Can you run front mudflaps with 255/85/16 or 255/80/17 ?

I don't know about you guys but I can't find 255/85/16 cooper s/t's cheaper than ~175. I may just get 15"s and run 33-10.5 bfgs

The 255 km2's are nice. My flaps were already off when I got them but I don't think they would've stayed on at full lock. Rims are 4.5bs 17x8 mojaves as well.

The km2s more of a round profile at the sidewall/tread. Id imagine the coopers rub a lil bit more

Drivers side:






Passenger:






I've got the Toytec ULK, coilovers were adjusted slightly lower than stock to attempt to correct CV angles. I think I adjusted to 1/8" thread on the coilovers. I think that equals 1/4" less lift?
The rims are atx mojaves 17x8 4.5"bs.
I did have to trim on the front the small black plastic but it was barely touching.
Sorry for the semi crappy pics. Cell phone camera + blinding sunlight = not great pics.

Thanks for the pics John

Did you get new UCA's when you did your lift ?

I'm just wondering if I could adjust the caster to get the tire slightly more forward in the well .

I ran some 255/85/16 Interco Trxus tires and I did not rub at all with my OME lift on the front or rear. I was not running front flaps though...it will be a tight fit.

If that doesn't work I'm gonna use a heat gun at work that we use for "heat welding" pvc roof membrane together. Ill let ya know how it turns out

My current 265/70/17 Hankook Dynapro M/T's are 31 1/2" tires , and as you can see I currently have only about 5/8" at the narrowest point with the wheel turned part way







I'll be just touching with the 255/80/17 as they are a true 33" tire

Wondering about heating and flattening or cutting the bump in the flap .
