    if you're atleast 2.5 front you will fit 285/70/17 at tires on 17x8 4.5 backspacing wheel. I had slight rubbing but after removing the front mud flaps all is well.

    3" would clear. 285 mud tires with slight rubbing and trim might be needed.

    I went with nitto terra grapler 285/70/17 from what i've read on here they are pretty good tires. at a decent price. discount tire price out the door was $861 for all 4. I didn't go mud tires since I wasn't going to be doing much of that and read that gas milleage goes down with mud tires. then the noise was another issue. I'm happy with my setup :)

    what i did was i took the pics with my iphone, uploaded them to a photobucket account, then what you do is choose the IMG html and copy and paste on to your post. easy as cake.

    black out headlights bilstein 5100s toytec 2" aal procomp 7089 nitto terra grapler 285/70/17
    they actually look nice and aggressive. the thread on the nittos are sweet. JSG i took this photo on small jpg and did a quick edit. next week ill have some better photos ill pm you a link for the larger files.

    francis the black out headlight is on the headlight forum. it's really easy, I did mine a little different. taking out the headlights is cake. once the lights are out preheat oven to 250. make sure all screws and plastic parts are out off the headlights. bake it for 5 minutes and pry them open. lightly sand with 400 grit and paint 4-5 coats of krylon flat black. repeat the steps revers..here's a link of the black out headlights:
