    With the 285/60/18s you'd probably have some rubbing issues! Trimming and wheel spacers might be in your future. I don't recommend spacers though...

    Most likely have to cut. Best way to go about it, turn the wheel and see where it rubs then cut...might even have to chop the cabin mount to allow for the rear part of the tire.

    Chop cabin mount? Is that difficult? And why not spacers?

    Size of the leveling kit would help.
