    I'm running 285/75/17 on my 2011 dc right now. It took a little more chopping than the 33x12.50x17's I was running. Did the cab mount chop, smashed the pinch weld, and trimmed the inner fender, also I have an ARB bumper. They are for sale as I'm going bigger!

    As you state "No Trimming" You can run 265/70/17, anything bigger and you'll probably need to do some minor trimming.
