    A tire that size won't rub anything. You only really have to start trimming stuff when you go up to a 285 (33") tire. The 31" tire might look a little small with a lift though.

    31" on a 2.75" lift will look small? I figured it would fill the wheel well pretty well... it also recommended that size, one thing about lifts and tires is you can never tell what it will look like lol, not until the deed is done

    I'd go with a 33x12.5-18 on a 6" lift... As far as the MPG u might lose 3-4MPG depending on the tire u choose to go with

    I forgot to mention that I'll be running my stock steel 5 lug rims with the bigger 31" tires and the 2.75" pro comp lift... would it rub then? I ask because the wheels are flush with the tires, as opposed to being sunk in
