You mean like 1/4" spacers from wheelers? I might be getting some of those soon cuz my tires are rubbing the spindles.

i'm talking more like 1-1.5" spacers to keep from rubbing the UCA's. but i've never heard someone having rubbing issues w/ 265's on spindles

Oh ok thanks man. yeah it's kinda weird that they're rubbing the spindles. hopefully the spacers will take care of it.

Do you absolutly need a 3" lift to run 265/70r17?

If so, what is the biggest tire I can fit on my stock 17" rims without a lift?

you wont need a lift at all with 265's if you have a prerunner or 4x4 but the 265 is the largest size on the 17" rim with no lift.

I get my 3 inch lift this week and was all excited to go with 285/70/17. Sounds like I would need the spacers for that with my stock 17 wheels.

I ran my 285's with 1/4" spacers from auto zone for 30,000 miles with no problems. Maybe i was lucky but it worked for me to get enough clearance for the to work. They will still rub the uca at full lock both ways but i got used to it a learned how to park my limo in no time

Same Question as original, but I put on new UCA's

Ive got a 3" lift and new AllPro UCA's so I'm not worried about rub on the UCA, but what is the largest tire I can run without rub issues on my 17" wheels. I don't mind cutting plastic in the wheel well, I just don't know if it will rub frame somewhere.

Tomorrow I am going to try to stuff 305/65 17's in there, they are .1" smaller diameter but .8" wider than 285/70 17's. I think I can make it work, probably need spacers but we'll see.

Let me know how that goes. I have a 3" lift and once my 265's that I've had on there before the lift wear out I'm going to go with 17's and the biggest tire I can fit.
