275 tire 18" rim setup... With 5100?????

Anyone besides KPT running this setup with a 18 inch rim and 275/70... Going with billies set at 1.75 and deciding between Nitto Terra and the brand new Toyo Open Country AT II. Wanna run as close to a 33" tire without going with 285.

Pictures?? Thanks Pardsys!

I've paid attention to all your info KPT... I just can't decide what route I wanna go as far as tires. I really like Azonicbruce's setup with that new Toyo OC ATII with method double standard 16", his tire is 31.6 in diameter. I'm going billy 5100 at 1.75 I think so I wanna fit the closest to a 33 as possible. That is why I like this 275/18 option.

Are your Terra's the LT tire or P Metric? The LT 275/70R18 runs at 33.27 the p metric is @ 32.05. How do like the setup with the Terra's? And did you end up trimming after the switch from the Dynopros?

I'm running the P metrics. I had to cut off the piece of the fender well liner than hangs down below the bumper level.

You won't be able to fit a 275/70/18 without A LOT of trimming at 1.75". That's almost a 34" tire. My buddy ran them with 2" of lift and we had to trim a ton of plastic out of the wheel wells, and they still rubbed cab mount.

Edit, I just noticed you said P. You'll still have a lot of trimming to do in a 275/70. I would look at 275/65's.

275/65/18 on 5100's w/885. I did have just the 5100's set at 2.5 originally. Had a chance to get 885's and went with it. Had to trim the part that stuck out below the fender and a little in a couple other spots, but I have zero rubbing now even at full stuff w/ full lock.
