    Ok. Everything is done.

    New OME all around. 885's up front. New dakars in the rears.

    New light racing UCA

    What tires will fit with no rubbing or trimming.

    I was thinking 275/70/17's bfg

    Thanks in advance

    He needs that for 285/70R17. Bigger than that will rub under compression when turning.

    Because BFG is a tire manufacturer and not a specific tire. Thats like saying your going to get a new vehicle, Honda. Not very specific. I dont understand why people just refer to as xtiresize BFG.

    My BFG all terrains were great tires though. Got 60K out of them, good traction on and off road. Wet performance was a bit lacking, but blame that on my (former) heavy foot and an open diff in the rear.

    ATs tend to be slightly smaller than MT is the same size.
