    hey bro's rummaging through the tire and wheel threads still kind of star struck by the amount of info and opinions i took in lol but my buddy just bought a beater car for the winter and is throwing a 6 inch BDS on his 04 f150 and dumping mad money into it so he's no longer driving it in the winter and is going to give me his 295 duratracs they're on stock ford 18" rims not sure the other tire info but can i get them to fit if so what trimming will i have to do?

    If you never wheel, and do everything right...around town it should not be an issue

    even with the 285's likelihood will be you will need to go trimming and you *might have to do a cab mount chop.

    haven't seen too many people have to chop the cab mounts and in that case it's worth it. i hate having my 270/70/17's not stick out on my stock wheels. it sickens me that my truck has no beefy look to it :(

    IMO do it the way you want to do it the first time. If your going to settle you wont be happy. Looks like you are a 2wd and if so go with some Camburg spindles, the XD wheels, the 295's and call it a nice front end. You will stick out a lot from the fenders and it will give you a mean, wide ass front end (sounds like thats what your looking for).

    nope I was lifted 3 inches, and didnt have a problem while my caster was too high with stock ucas (4.4), but when I got the TCs and proper caster (2.4) I rubbed like a bitch

    Well depending on your alignment you can, In my situation with KM2s and 285/75/16 with 7k miles on it I was able to avoid the cab mount when my alignment was 2.9 caster and above. Depending on if you get new upper control arms you could probably swing it so you dont rub much if not at all.

    I ramble so if this doesnt make sense lemme know and Ill try to explain it better.

    I have no cab mount chop and fit 285's like a champ. They are TRD SE FJ wheels though. 4.5" back spacing with a total wheel width of 7.5" I think. Fits perfect with 3" lift.
