    I have a 2011 dc 4x4 off-road rear tsb.

    Before anyone suggests the search button I have.

    I am wondering if 255/85/16 KM2's will fit with billies set at 1.75" on factory wheels?

    I am willing to trim plastic and even do the body mount chop. I know all is possible as long as I am willing to be liberal with the sawzall.

    Thank you. Ready. :crapstorm:

    Is anyone in the dfw area willing to meet up so I can figure out if I need to do the body mount chop?

    You will have to trim a ton. That's a 33" tire. More poeple sue wheel spacers, billys at 2.5", and still have to trim.

    Spacers with a 255? I see where they are needed with the 285's.

    I am not wanting to go to 2.5" till I can do it the right way with uca's and icons. I plan is to go to 295/70/17 eventually when the cfo allows it.

    They are needed for 285's that are 33's, because the tire is tall anough that it can hit the uca's. If you run 285's in a 32 you don't need wheel spacers.

    So with the 33" tire, you still might need spacers because the tire is tall enoug to hit the UCA's.
