    You'd most likely still need to do some trimming to clear 285's.

    depending on the tire you will also rub on the UCA and will either need wheel spacers or new UCAs.

    You will definately need spacers or new wheels with different specs than stock.

    when i got my 285/70/17's put on i did not have my wheel spacers on. mine scrubbed on the UCA at full lock. with the wheels straight, you could hardly get a pinky between the wheel and UCA. i have A/T's but if you had anything with a large side grip like a M/T you would need a wheel spacer. lucky me i had an old set of spidertrax in the barn that i ended putting on my truck.

    and yes you will need to do some minor trimming, but nothing to worry about...its just plastic!

    I'm wondering about the bilsteins set at 2.5 with stock coils how does it ride etc. I didn't want to start a new thread and the search brought me to this
