    The 265/70/17 Nitto Ridge Grapplers ended up being much larger in real life, than I thought they would be. There is slight rubbing in reverse when the wheel is locked, but I’m concerned when going off road.

    I have the TRD Sport package. If it’s going to be a problem, what are my options?

    passenger side pics, wheel center, wheel locked left, wheel locked right.

    Big plans, small budget - ICON UCAs, SCS wheels, 285 KO2s, Leer 100XR canopy.
    Get rid of that little flap in front of your wheels, thats whats rubbing probably. You should be fine going offroad with that wheel size.
    Your tire and wheels look good.

    It looks like your front flaps are rubbing. Take them off and report back.

    I used those on my 2015 and now use them on my 2018. No problem but it’s a pain in the ass changing a tire or to rotate them with all of the nuts are locking. You just get use to it. I would buy an extra key.


    I have the same wheel set up as yours.

    Like you guys suggested, removing the flap did it. This is at full wheel lock
