    Could you explain "proper wheel a cab mount chop" ? and how far out would the 285 stick out?

    proper wheel. cab mount chop. 2 seperate things. cab mount chop is what your cab mounts to on the frame. proper wheels meaning backspacing, offset and such

    whatever you think. I think with anything smaller than 285 maybe 295/75/16 4.5 BS should be ok but if you go any wider than that then 4" or less and definetly a wider than 8" rim.

    I just got a 3" Toytec lift, and have 285/70/17 BFG AT's. My wheels have a backspacing of 4.75" and a 0 mm offset. I had some minimal trimming done on the plastic inside the fender and my front mud flaps. There is hardly any rubbing. I think it was good fit.

    Ah soon, very soon. Hopefully post some tonight or tomorrow. If you read around the threads, the magic number for backspacing is 4-4.5", so I was worried about the wheels I chose, but everything workout better than I could imagine. Surprised on how sharp I can still turn without it rubbing!

    Me and a few other members have 315/75/16's on 3" of lift. A lot of chopping was involved to make them fit though.

    Which I take to mean that you rub if you turn all the way lock to lock?
