Can you run front mudflaps with 255/85/16 or 255/80/17 ?
 
As the thread title states , can you run front flaps with pizza cutters ?

I've seen a lot of side pics and it looks like there is room but what about at full lock ?

OZ-T 07-21-2011 09:51 PM

I found these pics , but will the flaps get ripped off when it's running ?

I'm trying to decide between 255's and 285's for my next set of tires

Keeping the front flaps would be nice for the roads I drive , but there is such a limited number of 255's availible

I buy from discounttiredirect and the only 255 85 16 they sell is the km2 for around $200 (last I checked).

You can about double that price to get them up here

I would run them if I could afford them. My current 265/75/16 BFGs still have good tread left. I want to run 255s but I'm probably going to go with 285s because they're cheaper. It would be between the KM2s and the Cooper Discoverer s/ts for me if I went with 255s.

I noticed that when we were up there last month. Not sure why, but everything is so expensive.

From the border (Bonners Ferry) to Banff, we noticed 8 US license plates. Not a lot of Americans up there anymore. I would like to go back, but price-wise it just doesn't make sense anymore...

That's good for you, I guess?? On top of everything we buy up there, Visa tacks on another 3% Foreign transaction fee. Ouch.
