    285/75. I've got 265/75 and wish I went bigger. I've got aal's for my truck that haven't been installed only because I don't want a big fender gap.

    285 for sure. You will need some spidertrax wheel spacers so you don't rub on your UCA's

    My story too. I do rub a bit though when backing sharply out of a parking spot. My rims are 17"x9". I think if I went with 8"s I'd have been fine. This rim was only made in 7" or 9" though.
