    I just put 275/70/17 Goodyear Wrangler AT/S on mine with no lift, rub on hard turns and when suspension is compressed, front only. tiers barely clear suspension on the inside but it does ok. not sure how big u can go with a three inch lift but the main issue is tire width. i want to eventually put 315's on mine but it looks like 275's are probably as big as i can go in the front even with a lift. you'll have to look into getting rims with a different back-spacing or use wheel spacers.

    Those are 16's right? I got 17's and the damn things are huge. I did see ta Taco with a three in suspension lift and 315's on 16's on after market rims.

    I think you can you fit 285/75/16 with a bigger wheel offset with out any rubbing but what would that amount be?

    ya they will work but i would suggest that you get a different lift. i got a spacer lift before i was on here and it makes your truck ride like shit. since you're sticking with 265's you can get some billy 5100's that give 2.5 of lift in the front and get a aal for the rear and 2 more billy 5100's.

    get the first one. the last 2 are spacer lifts and you dont want those, trust me. the first one has lift coils and a small top plate spacer which gives you the full 3 inches of lift and an aal is an add-a-leaf which gives you lift in the back.
