    hey actually I just realized you are a first gen. Although I still think you may need to trim let someone with more experience chime in!

    if you are running them with stock wheels.....you'll probably need wheel spacers, and remove the mud flaps and you'll still have to trim a bit too.

    well....you should be ok on not rubbing on the uca's then, but you'll still have to do some trimming.

    well....you'll have to cut some plastic outta the way so that the tires wont rub on it........like part of the front bumper trim maybe, maybe some of the fenderwell....just depends really.

    they are the same height approx as a 285/75

    you still may have to trim the backside of the fender liner and hammer down the pinch weld
