    If you end up going with 285's, refer to this thread.

    I did some offroading last weekend in Cleghorn, and even with the trimming, my tires sounded like they wanted to rip my fenders off while under flex.

    With no rubbing, and full flex, your looking at a 265/75/16

    x2...I have a 3" lift myself and I'm running 265/75/16s. I'd like to run 285's but I may have to get a cab mount chop to run them properly...not sure if I wanna do that. Of course i'm just going by what i've heard

    you failed to mention if you are using the stock wheels. if you are you will need to get some wheel spacers, and even with them you will still get a little rub(nothing you cant fix with a heat gun). i am personally going with the 265's to get full articulation without rub although i will still probably get the spacers

    In my 1st Gen with 265's i only get a little rub, and I am not lifted yet. You guys should be just fine with the 265's.

    when i ran 265/70/17 on stock wheels w/ 1.25" spacers, the only rubbing I had was when I jumped my truck 5 feet in the air, they kissed the fenders. Other than that, I had no issues with rubbing.

    now with the 285/70/17, they dont rub with normal day-2-day driving, but they still rub while flexing. They are still rubbing plastic after trimming (i should trim more) they are also rubbing the cab mounts.


    this with a 3" lift.

    I think i am going to run 265/75/16's. But now my question is do i need backspacing to have no rubbing with these tires and how much would i need if any?

    You can run that size just fine on the OEM wheels.

    IMO I think the tire can make a huge difference...for example, a beefy M/T will look tougher than a highway tire or even a A/T obviously...what I mean is that you don't have to squeeze a big O' tire in the wheel wells to look tough and cool ya know? Function is more important than looks but if you can both than :woot:

    No...Stock is a 265/70/16, or a 31" tall tire. A 265/75/16 is a 32" tall tire.

    And that extra 1" in tire size only yields about 1/2" in ground clearance. 1/2" grond clearance doesnt mean much. I agree in which I would rather be more able to stuff the tire without rubbing.
