    ive got 285/65/18. a 70 would be a little to big for a 18" rim IMO.

    You got me thinking now. I think I have 285/75/17 but it may be 285/70/17

    Not sure how much of a difference there is there. I had to do some very minor trimming. And I have adjustable CoilOvers that are set around 2 or 2.5.

    With a 3" lift you shuold be fine.

    they're 285/70/r17's almost without a doubt.

    ~33" tires in metric are:

    285/75/r16
    285/70/r17
    285/65/r18

    Please keep in mind that 285mm wide tires will rub on stock rims.

    There we go, I knew somebody with some knowledge would come in soon.

    I am running 285/70/r17 and I have 1.25 Spidertrax wheel adapters.

    285/70/17 mickey thompsons on a moto metal wheel with 4.5" backspacing. No rubbing and my lift is a toytec ultimate kit. Bigger than that would look overstuffed and stupid.

    Did you have to do a lot of trimming?
