    Looking for a little help here.

    I have a 2009 toyota tacoma with a 3inch front and 2 inch rear level kit. I may upgrade the suspension later but will keep the lift height the same for sure.

    So Im looking to put some 285 70 r 17 or 285 75 r 17 allterrain / mud terrain tires on as my old 265's are worn out. Most likely AT bf goodrich or someother

    Will I be getting any rubbing from the control arms with the larger tires. I would expect maybe the plastic on the fenders which is no big deal that can be trimmed away

    And does anyone have any tire reccomendations and anyone running 285s on the trd 17inch sport rims that can say its a go


    Thanks fellas,

    Justin

    You'll need wheel spacers and you'll need to trim
