getting 285/75/16 what uca? will i need a wheel spacer?

i just installed my OME 3'' lift and need new tires. i really want to get the 285/75/16 duratracs but after reading around it seems like they would rub stock uca's so i went to the local tire shop and asked them to test one on to see. well it was close i could fit my finger in there thats a bout it. sooo i figure i may as well get new uca's cause when i installed my lift i punctured both of the ball joint boots with the tie rod fork lol just wondering who has done something similar to their first gen and if they needed wheel spacers if so what size would you recommend? Ive been thinking LR uca's but wondering about ppls experience with them.

Alot people like the LR UCA's, but you will def. need either wheel spacer's or new wheels with a 4" backspacing. spidertrax spacers are the best.

The LR's are still a ball-joint and the LR's are mainly for correcting allignment after lifting. And you wont get the full articulation you would get from a Uni-ball UCA like TC's or Camburg. But If you dont off road alot, then I wouldnt worry about it.

alright that helps thanks but i think to avoid any major issues i might just go with 265 cause at the moment i have stock ucas and i wouldnt get the spacers for a while you wouldnt happen to know anyone with a similar truck with pics of how that would look would you ?

You can run the 285's for a little while, you wont rub the UCA's to bad, but it will be close. Def. get your spacer's asap so your not destroying your tires by rubbing on your Frame and UCA's.

You mainly rub on your UCA's when your flexing and turning, like when you pull into a parking lot or driveway.

Dont go with 265's!! It doesnt look that great. Kinda goofy.
