    looking at purchasing some rims and tires for my truck. i've heard from a local mechanic that anything larger then a 285 tire probably wont work. i've lifted my truck 3" and am looking at purchasing a 17x9 rim. with a 285 70 R17 tire. does anybody have this combo, if so, any rubbing or interference?

    Its going to depend on the offset/Back spacing of the wheels. Link to the wheels?

    ok, that isnt the ideal specs for clearing the 285s, but its ok. Many aftermarket wheels run those specs. You will probably have to remove the front mudflaps and trim a little bit of the inner fender liner in the front of the front wheel wells to keep from rubbing when turning. If you offroad a bunch or if your tires are some of the larger 285s, you may also find they rub the cab mount at times, in which case that may need the chop/replate mod done on it if its severe enough.
