Running 275/70R17 Tires w/ Bilstein 5100 @ 1.75" w/ Offset Wheels or Spacers

Long Story Short: It Works!

Current Front Suspension:

Bilstein 5100 Shocks @ 1.75" w/ Stock TRD Coils
Everything Else Stock

Current Rear Suspension:

Wheelers 1.5" 3 Leaf Progressive AAL
Bilstein 5100 Shocks
All Pro U Bolt Flip Kit

Current Wheels & Tires:

Pro Comp 17X8" 7089 w/ 4.5" Backspace
275/70R17 Cooper Discoverer ST

I had the slightest of rub on the front/rear at full lock in either direction. The tires were only making contact with plastic, and I took care of that tonight. I am very happy with the look and feel of the tires.

What I Trimmed


Front Of Wheel Well


Rear of Wheel Well









I'm sorry I didn't take before shots, but I do hope that this can help someone searching for the answer in the future.

Without a doubt it's tight, but I took it out for a test drive after trimming, and I'm very happy with the results. I think I will take care of the CMC and possibly the pinch weld here in the near future, just to allow for a little more room if needed when flexing. I'm by no means a serious off road driver, but I do drive through irrigation ditches to check on the cows and cut a little jag of firewood here and there. I might drive down old skid trails to get to a good fishing hole or deer camp, but besides that she is my daily driver and sees a lot more pavement that dirt; if you don't count our driveway.

Looks great Wes. Have you noticed any rubbing on the Cab Mount/Pinch Weld yet?

Nice! Looks good!

I'm planning on running the BFG AT's in the same size. I'm going with a full 3" though but with same size wheel and offset.

Good to know... Thanks

Thanks! You will have no problem with rubbing with that lift an this size tire. I will make the bump to 3" someday, but for now this suits my needs and fits our budget.

Thank you! Not at all, in regards to the rubbing. Since trimming the plastic there has been no rubbing. I actually crawled underneath last night to check for any signs of rubbing. I have been tentative to the matter due to the fact that they are brand new tires and I want to avoid any premature wear or chunking. Everything looks good, but I will still be taking care of my cab mount and pinch weld in the near future; a little extra space during flex is always welcomed.

I have a regular commute and I use the Torque app with a bluetooth OBDII adapter and I only notice a 0.2-0.5 mpg drop. The Cooper's are 6 Ply (C Load Range) and really weren't that much heavier than the Toyo ATs that I had on before hand, and it would appear the ~2" larger diameter tires didn't make much of a difference in mileage, but the truck looks great IMO and the added height and traction is always appreciated even in the most mild off-road situations.

Okay thanks man. I really want to go with this size but I was having a hard time finding a c rated tire. The st's are one of the few options but I heard somewhere that they weren't going to make them anymore once they introduce the st max in this size and those only come in e rated

You can still find them at Sears. It appeared that they have a fairly large stock of the last production run of the ST. If you go this route, they offer all of the bells and whistles that you would get at any other tire dealer, and I have found thier service better most of the time. Chances are they will have to order the tire from a regional warehouse, and then be sure to check the mfg/exp date of each tire.

Are you still liking these tires? Thinking of picking a set of these up. Just want to factor in everything. Mpg, noise, balance, on and off road performance, dry, wet, snow, ice, etc......
