    Well I went ahead and ordered pro comp 5038 wheels, I like them too much and too good of a sale to pass up... Prob be a while before I get new tires, one step at a time.

    I think when you go to a 285 you will have rubbing, especially with only 2.5" up front. Not sure about the backspacing, just be prepared though. My 265/70/17 tires rub when I'm turning into a driveway with some speed. But it's just hitting plastic so I can care less. The cab mount is the one to watch out for. Mud flaps must go.

    I had 285/60/18s on my old 05 set @ 2.5 & there was no problem with cab mount but the mud flap was removed and the little plastic box on the fender liner in front of the tire had to but cut and folded up on itself and a screw put thru it to keep it out of the way. The 275/65/18 Duratracs were a tighter fit than the 285/60/18 NTGs were. The NTGs were 31.6" x 11" and the GYDs were 32.1" x 10.5". That was on 18x9 rims with 45 BS IIRC............
