    I was gonna throw them on there and go for a cruise around the base to see what would happen but I didnt have time today.... Even if I do the trimming ahead of time you think it will be bad??

    Only one way to tell...is try it and tell us we were wrong. But I wouldn't want to spend money on new rubber and then do that kinda of testing with it.

    Don't do it, I am running 285/65/18's and they need a ton of trimming with the 3" lift, I couldn't even turn them without having them rub. I can't imagine what it would be like at stock height.

    Which is pretty much what was said in post #2. BUT, He seems he wants to really try it despite giving our oppinions.
