    what offset..

    im really concerned about the rims contacting the calipers, im reading alot of people have this problem..

    has anyone with 17" rims had caliper issues?

    i have to make sure 100% they will fit as im ordering from canada and driving into the US to pick em up..

    I will be buying aftermarket rims and tires, to go with the lift.. The lift will be either a toytec spacer and leaf, or a toytec ome lift.. Both at 3"...

    So far all I have heard is 275/70/17..

    Which really sucks, because its the same size as stock... I don't any point in lifting it, if I can only gain, maybe an inch.. Just doesn't seem worth the 2' for rims and tires, and 500$ for a lift..

    With the right offset you can run 285's with minimal trimming.
