    I ordered my Bilstein 5100's and AAL. I will be setting them at 1.75 with a 1.5 AAL from Wheelers Off Road.

    My question is: Will these fit with no mud flaps? ( I know this size is widely documented to fit even on a stock setup but the following measurements have me wondering.)

    Because their site says that the Outer Diameter is 32.25" when Discount tire direct says that the Goodyear Duratracs are 31.7".

    I'm pretty new to all this so discount may be using a different way to measure their tires than treadwright.com, I just don't know because i am a noob.

    Any insight would be appreciated!

    51 views and no answers, must be a dumb question. I'll assume they will fit.

    I had the identical set you are talking about. 5100 f=1.75 and 1.5 AAL with 17x8.5 wheels but with bfg ko. And they did rub Both on the mud flaps and the plastic in the front. the rubbing happened only on full crank. Now with the front at 2.5 with flaps off there still a little rubbing on the front even after trimming of the plastic "only going up and down the drive way cranked"
