    I have read every thread on this tire size and haven't found an answer. I can pick up a set of FJ wheels with 255/85/16 BFGs on them for a pretty good price. I want to lift in the near future, but for now, I want to be able to run these. Will they fit my 08 DCLB or will I have issues. I don't really want to do any trimming or anything. Since the tires are more narrow and the rims are backspaced differently it would appear that this will work, but I am not sure. Any advice is greatly appreciated. I have always run them tall and skinny- awesome in the snow and mud.

    You will rub. Even with my OME lift, at FULL lock I actually rub the frame (not body mount, but actual frame). The nice thing about 255/85 is that you can run stock UCA and have plenty of clearance, you also clear the body mount pretty well, but you will rub the frame for sure.
