    What kind of wheels, and with how much backspacing. With stock wheels, you'll need spidertrax wheel spacers.

    I just installed MT ATZ's 285/75r16's 2 hrs ago. I have a 3" lift and spidertrax spacers. They rubbed when i backed out of the parking space at full turn but not since. I'm going to do a full check when i get home from work today. It may just be the front mudflaps.

    let me know how much you trim and take pics of what you have to do if you have the chance :cool: I'm thinkin about trying to get 255/85/16 to avoid getting spacers/trimming.

    Here are the picts of what I had to trim. 1Trim.jpg is looking up from underneath, 2Trim.jpg is looking down over the front passenger side. I did have to remove the mud flaps (no biggie, I was tossed on whether I wanted them or not). I basically removed the black plastic drop down section in front of both tires, but, left it connected by the bolts so it didn't flap in the breeze. Hope this helps. My trim job was quick with my dremel, I will take a little more time to clean up the lines this weekend.

    X2 on this one. That's pretty much exactly where I trimmed on my truck running 285/65/18's, with -12 offset aftermarket wheels.;)

    You got those mixed up lol. I stared at the second picture forever trying to figure the angle out. I really dont want to have to cut the body of the truck. The fenderwells dont bother me, but the body does.


    Is this what all of you with 285/stock wheels with spidertrax spacers had to cut?

    Here's what I did...

    It's not really the "body" of the truck, it's just the plastic fender flare. I didn't have to trim the front at all, but here is what I trimmed at the rear of the wheel well:

    FYI, they are not mixed up. The first pic is 2Trim.jpg and the second pic is 1Trim.jpg. Now who's lol :) I will take some better picts when I finish the cleanup trimming. Yes they are 285/75R16 on stock wheels. (Budget build)
