    Does anyone have pics of a lifted double cad long bed with 265/75/16's?? I just ordered my wheels and will be ordering the Toytec ultimate lift kit in about a week. However, i cant decide if i want to go with 265's or 285's. I really dont want to hack up my wheel wells. I have seen one or two, im just trying to gauge the actual difference in looks. I dont wheel my truck (its a long bed for crying out loud) and its a DD. Thanks in advance

    ^ if you get UCA's than you shouldn't really have to do much trimming with the 285s.

    You can wheel a DC LB...it's fun:)

    what wheels did you get. there is probably very minimal trimming with the 285's

    I got 16x8 KMC Enduro's (machined finish). They have 4.5in BS and 0mm offset. They BARELY clear the caliper. I might have about 1/32 to 1/16 of an inch between the wheel and the front of the caliper but they spin.

    Have you had any vibration issues at lower speed / 5-15mph ? I know some do and some don't and when I talked to toytec they said they didnt include the $11 part because some people have no issues with vibration

    Those are the right size 285's should be GTG with little trimming

    it's worth the small amount of trimming to run 285's

    Go with the 285's, it will look much better with your lift.

    I have 16x8 American Racing Chambers with 285/75/16 on a 2.5" lift, trimmed a tiny bit of plastic and took off the front mud flaps.

    What size wheels did you get?
