    I have done all the research and I have spoken with several people from looking at their rigs regarding their tires. Here is where I am at.

    I am a SR5 4x4 2012 DCLB. I have the full OME lift kit w/885 up front (no top plate spacer) and Dakar in the rear. My front center of hub to bottom of fender is at 22in with about a 1in rake from the rear.

    All I want to do is fit a 285 which I have seen done several times. I do not care about trimming plastic or having to buy new wheels with different back spacing, but would greatly love to avoid the cab mount chop.


    If anyone is this configuration or very close what tire are you running, how did you get it to fit, and what is your center of hub to fender measurement??

    THANK YOU FOR ANY AND ALL HELP!!!

    Need help

    For some reason I am having a nightmare getting tires and wheels to fit. My only goal at this point is to run 285's. I am open to purchase different wheels and tires. I would like to fit the BFG all terrain T/A but am not married to that tire. I have been to two shops both tried a couple different wheels and the 285's wouldn't fit. I feel like this is a stupid problem to have when I see so many trucks on here run 285's yet I have this problem.

    Any real off roading will be on existing trails for camping or hunting. No real wheeling and no rock climbing. Just need some guidance on what I need to either do to the truck or specific wheel measurements and tries I need.

    Thank you again for any and all help!

    I run those tires in that size, look at my build thread and compare your setup.

    so what on em isint fitting and where? uca or coil rub? if you want to use your stock rims, you will need spacers or new rims with greater backspacing.

    bear in mind that with a 285 anything your gonna rub still at full lock and/or flexing turns without the cmc. shouldnt happen that often tho.

    you also have to remove your front mudflaps in addition to plastic trimming if you havent already done so.

    That tire size is pretty common, you just need a wheel with 4 inches of backspacing or a set of spacers, I use 1.25 spidertrax to get my tires away from my upper control arm, unfortunately depending on how much you go offroad, you may need to chop your cab mount no matter what wheel you choose.

    Yeah I'm confused by this! So u r running stock wheels or what? I'm not seeing the problem here. A perfect wheel setup is a rim with a 4.5 backspacing. The tires u are choosing should not really come close to causing these problems.

    I have the same set up. OME lift with 285s and 4" backspace wheels. 4.5" backspace will also be fine. Not necessary to chop the cab mounts. I chopped mine, but trust me, it's not that big of a deal.

    Get an alignment. It could be that for some reason ur caster is bad out and moved ur wheel back in the fender well

    Thank you for the info so far. I will try and address the questions.

    I put the light Racing Upper control arms on with the lift and moved the sway bar forward with the spacer.

    There is no rub on the coil, UCA, or sway bar.

    The alignment was literally done today. The Left Front Camber 0.4degrees, Caster 2.3degrees Toe 0.06 degrees. Front Right Camber 0.4 degrees and Caster 2.8 degrees, Toe -0.01degree. Front Cross Camber 0.0 degrees. Front Cross Caster -0.4 degrees. Total Toe 0.05degree.

    Wheels: I am not trying to reuse the OEM wheels. This is one of the wheels that was tested. The best that could fit on these was a 265. I DO NOT have to have these wheels. I thought the shop I went to would be able to figure out the back spacing.
    http://www.discounttiredirect.com/d...roductSize.do?pc=62109&tmn=Strike+6&typ=Truck

    There is no rub in the front of the tire. The rub is in the back of the tire against the cab mount. On a flat surface with no flex you start turning the wheel and the shoulder of the tire crams right into the cab mount. This happens on both the driver and passenger side.

    With 285's I am ok if there is a touch of rub at full lock or if I really start flexing. Since it is primarily on road driving I'm don't expect much flex beyond normal driving.

    The tire tested was 285/70/17. I also DO NOT have to have 70/17 but it did look good.

    My goal: to see if there is anything else I need to add to the lift and find some specific numbers for wheel and tire sizes to take back to the shop. See if I can find a 2012 DCLB with this set up to mimic.

    Thank you for all the info and recommendations so far!!!

    I also ran into this problem and sometimes think that not all trucks are the same. I had to run my caster near 4 degrees positive caster to get rid of the rubbing issues. Since then I have done a cab mount chop and a lot of trimming. It's ok to run your caster above what someone may recommend here on the forum but you will run into what they call ''bump steer'' not at all that bad and you quickly get used to it. A good alignment shop should be able to tell you when they think the caster is starting to get in the bad.

    again i was worked up when people on this forum were running the same setup as me and had no problems, and i thought that it would never be right.

    Thank you for the info so far. It sounds like I have to start with 4 to 4.5 off set wheels. Any other 285/?/? tire size recommendations?

    Those that are running 285 what is your center of hub to fender measurement?
