    Haha. Thanks! I had BFGs on my last truck and have trusted them for a while now. All around great tire. And I'm glad I went with 285s.

    My tires started to rub a tiny bit today :eek: They didn't before when I got them. It's only when I'm in reverse with the wheel turned all the way. Doesn't rub enough to worry, but why all of a sudden? I thought the coils wouldn't sag. OZ, help me out. You said they wouldn't sag :p

    A wha? Lol. It's only rubbing a little on the plastic fender part. A little sand paper would probably help if that says how tiny of a rub it is. I'm just wondering why it started rubbing now.

    EDIT: And I did add an extra 1.5 pounds to the front tires last night. Would that cause it? Probably doesn't, but just making sure.
