    About to make my tire purchase and want to get a last minute opinion after reading some rubbing issues all around. I will have an ICON coilover kit with TC UCA's with Moto Metal 17's.

    Oh btw, these would be Toyo Open County AT's wrapped around Moto Metal Blacks
    Backspace: 4.53 "
    Offset -12mm

    There was just a recent comment about a dude's stuff rubbing the cab frame with the Toyos. Has me wondering if I should go 275 instead of 285. Any help is greatly appreciated.

    I have 275/70/17 Michellin LTXs on my TRD stock 17" rims, and there's very little space- about 1/2 inch between the tire and shock mount.. not sure what a 285 does with the offset you have, but most tire places will mount the Larger tire and see if it fits before mounting the others...just FYI.

    nuebs runs 275/70/17 goodyear MT's, I've talked to him about his fitment and decided to go with a set of mastercraft ct's in the same size to avoid all the 285 drama. Now all I have to do is buy a house first :rolleyes:

    i would say 285.... IS my opinion... R u at 3" in the front.... If not then maybe the 275s would be nice... WHen i had the 3" lift in the front i had a minor rub but that was only when i had the wheel at full crank....
