is a 3" revtek lift with a 285/75/16 on stock wheels possibile without rubbing??

i would like to us 285/75/16's on my stock trd wheels with a revtek 3" lift. i understand there is still some rubbing with wheels that have 4.5" backspacing but only when turned all the way and hitting a bump pretty hard. will i have to remove the oem mudflaps?? fender trimming?? or use wheel spacers?? if it does rub will it be on the frame?? a-arm?? or just on the outside inner fender?? any help will be much appreciated. thank you!!

wow lol you must be looking for the same look i was! i have the 3" revtek lift with 285x75x16 and they sometime rub when turned locked. yet all i had to do was very minor trimmimg to the inner fender well (just plastics) it clears them nicely

well i did it! i used the revtek 3" lift and stock wheels with pro comp extreme mt's in a 285/75/16. i had to use a 1/4 inch wheel spacer because the tires were only about an 8th of an inch away from the a-arm. now they only rub when turned all the way on the upper a-arm but only on the side wall of the tire and very little.
