    Hey guys, im asking for some opinions on what tire and wheel size to get... I am getting 2.5 fox coils in front and uca. Im going for the pre runner look so i want the wheels to sit in the wheel wells rather than the car sitting above the wheels. I am getting kmc 17" enduros because i hear there ar some problems with the 16s, so my first ? is, should i go 17x8 or 17x9? the tires Im looking at are the bfg a/t. my second ? is, should i get 265/70/17 or 285/70/17...thanks for the help

    :thumbsup: The 285's may stick out on the 9" but I think they would be alright on the 8's

    do you think the 285 will rub too much?

    You should have a 3" to sport the 285's and even then you will need to trim a little.
