    Had tons on the Taco's.... new truck is pretty stock
    Not sure who else has them, but I think Secretsquirrel has 305/70/16's which should be basically the same. I dont see it being much of a problem to run them as its basically a 33x12.50.

    I run that size and they only rub a little when turned to full lock, a little trimming will cure that

    I'm running 305-65-17. I just had to trim a little bit of the black plastic under the wheel well. No grinding of body mounts. As far as wheeling, I haven't done anything crazy but what I have done there hasn't been any issues.

    Yea man they're gonna rub a little. You'll need to do a lot of trimming on the fender flares and maybe take a grinder to your body mount depending on what lift and wheels you have.

    I'm having the problem of really smashing my fender flares when the suspension cycles all the way to the top. I'm going to need to go to fiberglass soon. My fender flares are zip tied on...

    They will most likely rub on your body mount at full turn or offroading.
