    sort of true^

    he's a sport, so assuming he still has the stock sport wheels, it's 265/70/17 and 285/70/17 respectively.

    :annoyed: did not catch that lol thanks

    Also to add to the OP, 265's fit with no lift so I would go with the 285's and do the little trimming necessary to run them

    figured I contributed a good amount to do a little side tracking...

    so what tires you looking into OP?

    what kind of wheels you running and what lift components you have?

    I was looking into the Nitto Terra Grapplers. but I cant forget the toyo mud terrains. I love those tires and never had any issue with them. I bought the over spring spacers offline.

    is your alignment into spec being 3" and its seems as no upper control arms since you didnt mention them.

    going to a 285 you will also need wheel spacers or different than stock wheels with the proper backspacing and offset

    if you go 17x8 you need 4.5 backspacing. 17x9 you need 4.5 bs with -12mm offset. if you go down to 16x8 its just a 4.5 bs.

    good to hear the alignment worked out for you

    32-33 and thats about it.. anything more and you are going to need to trim and cut a lot.

    Or run spacers and look silly.
