I'm running 265/75/17's and I was told that's the limit with a stock set-up.

New to Taco's, too. This has probably been asked a billion times, so I really should just do a search, but if I installed a 3" lift, would 275/70/17 rub? How about 275/75/17 (do they even make these)? I heard that 285/75/16 may rub, too.

Sorry, just throwing out a bunch of jibberish.

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

With a 3" lift you will have minimal rubbing. Under compresion and with the wheel turned, you may rub the body mount. Not a big deal IMHO.
