    I got my Toytec ultimate lift today and I am extremely impressed. The ride seems much smoother than stock! I am currently running the stock 265/65 17 inch sport rims. I have the Moto Metal 951s waiting on me with 265/70 17 BFG AT at discount tire. My problem is that I think the 265/70s will look dinky with the 3 inch lift since they are only 1 inch taller than my stock tires. I am trying to figure out what tire size that is taller and possibly a little wider that I can run with no rubbing. I have the front coilovers set at 3 inches. I was just wanting some advice on tire size.

    You can crank the front coilovers down a little bit. I personally like the look of the 265/75/16 (your 265/70/17 is the same size) with a 3" lift. Good choice on tires :)

    wat?
    a 275/70/17 shouldnt have any rubbing issues w/ UCA or fenders...but let others comment too

    w/ the new rims the 285/70/17 will need trimming, but shouldnt be anything bad

    A 275/70/17 should fit without any issues with rubbing.

    I am not worried about UCA rubbing since the Moto Metals are -12 offset but do they make the BFG AT's in 275/70 17? I think that would be a good fit if they do! I just checked discount tires sit and couldn't find a BFG AT in that size! Thanks for the quick responses

    I dont think they have them in that size either if you're set on the BFG ATs.
