    Stock 285s gona rub like crazy fully stuffed

    3 inch lift, the 33-12.5s will not fit nearly as good as the 285s. Its the width that is different. 285s are like 11.5 wide, and 33-12.5s are 12.5 wide.

    sorry forgot to include i have a 6 inch lift

    and i like the look of the wide 10 inch wide wheels

    so the 285s are skinny ?

    I think i'm gonna hold out for the 33 12.5's since i want the 10 inch wheel

    I thought 18" wheels were required with the 6" lifts?

    I do believe that you have to run 18's if you have the VSC, I could be wrong
