    Hello,

    Need help......

    I want to paint my stock 17" alloy's and put the biggest AT tire I can on it.

    If I level the front to match the rear does anyone know what the largest tire I can buy?

    Also can anyone recommend a leveling kit?

    Thanks

    Here are 285/70 17's on a prerunner (no lift) with a 1/4" wheel spacer. Generally if you went with something this size you would need to trim the plastic fender well and possibly a cab mount.

    Here is the comparison for that tire and a 265/70 17

    The tire calculator can be found in the drop down menu of the "Mods and Tutorial" Section at the top of the page.

    yes the wheel spacer is just between the rim and wheel hub. it spaces it out from the vehicle just 1/4 inch. and i did a little trimming on my truck. just a small corner of plastic no bigger than my small toe. oh and by the way that is my truck in the pictures that were posted.

    Why space the front and not the back?
    Where did you trim, inside wheel well?

    because the back will not have the rubbing issue. so there is no need to put the spacer in the rear.
    i trimmed the front wheel wells. the inside were the mud flaps use to be. i would take pics for you but truck is in the body shop
