    thats right no rub at all. the tires are taller than a 285 but skinny so they dont have rubbing issues that you would with a 285. i may be one of the first to run these tires with such a small lift...

    I know all about 255's , I've been researching them for quite awhile , but I thought a 2.5" lift was the minimum up front to run these
