    Ok i think ive asked this before but a lil different.


    Can I fit 285/70R17 BFG Mud Terrains on my tacoma sport with 5100's @2.5 on STOCK rims?


    will they fit the stock 17" rim?
    will they rub a lot?
    Do i need a spacer?

    I don't think you can. The backspacking of a stock wheel is too high and would cause rubbing against the UCA. Maybe a wheel spacer would be good.

    offset will not be right, you will get rub on the upper control arm.

    They'll fit but def rub your UCAs. You need wheel spacers to keep the stock wheels, or an aftermarket UCA might allow enough clearance without spacers.

    I got myself a full set of Spidertrax spacers. I've been told if you get any, get the good ones.
    Spidertrax are the de-facto recommendation for anyone asking about spacers. $100 for two. They add 1.25".

    Just installed them. See gallery for pics of the subtle change in appearance. I'm building up my truck to get to the same tires: BFG AT 285/70R17

    Next stop: Also going to get the Toy ultimate lift this month, and when I paid off my cc I'll get the tires too.
