    I got a 2.5 pro comp front leveling kit and stock rear, im getting tires and want them bigger but dont want to rub, or have to shave fenders, im thinking 285/70/16's. What do you think will look good on it?

    Not exactly sure what that one measures out to. But with 285/70/17 or 285/75/16 you will rub. You'll rub a huge amount if you don't have wheel spacers or a new wheel with backspacing of 4.5 or less.

    Even with new wheels or wheel spacers you will have to trim. And will still likely rub.

    I have 285's with 2.5 of lift...

    Go with a 265 tire if u don't want rubbage.

    Your good on wheels then.

    I'd Go with 285's with probably an AAL too.

    More importantly I'd get Bilstein 5100's for the front and set them to 2.5 inches instead of the profumo spacer lift.

    You will more than likely have to trim still. And take off mud flaps.

    Dude, there's only a couple tire vendors that produce the 285/70/16 and their a little pricey...Toyo and Nitto are the makers I've found and they only offer that size in a M/T.

    You may still have rubbing issues...its the width, not the height thats gonna be an issue. You still may rub on your cab mounts
