    I blew a tire the other day so i'm goin ahead and pickin up a new set of BFG A/Ts, just trying to decide on a size. I have full intentions of putting Billies on, but for the moment its tires. If i put 285's on now, how bad will it be till i get the Billies? Or should i just stick with the 265's

    ps. 2010 TRD Sport, keepin stock rims

    You will need wheel spacers and a 2.5" lift minimum. THEN you will have trim and possibly chop your cab mounts.

    where does the rubbing occur? like constant? or only at full turn? If i have to deal with being a little cautious for a month, that isn't a big deal

    Without a lift I imagine it would rub plastic even on moderate turns.

    And without wheel spacers the tires will constantly rub the ucas

    OME 3" lift with 885 coils. OME Shocks with TSB 1.5 AAL. 285/75/16 KM2s. XD Hoss 16" wheels. DDM Tuning 6000K HIDs, H10 6000K Fogs. BHLM. Debaged. 20% tint on front windows.
    Just get 265/70/R17s if you are gonna get a new tire.. 285s require at least 2.5 of lift, new wheels with at least 4.5 BS or wheel spacers if you just wanna run stock wheels...

    I say throw the spare on, buy the lift now, and then buy the new tires when you can afford them.

    They are treadwrights, so they might be a little bit larger than the intended 265/70//17. I put them side to side with my 265/65/17 and they were significantly bigger. maybe in between 32's and 33's.
