33's with NO LIFT

I plan on getting some nitto terra grapplers in 285/75/16 within the next month or two and I was wondering if there is anyone out there rolling on the same size with no lift.

Was curious if there was major rubbing. I do plan on a small spacer and shackle.lift shortly also. Just need to know if I should do the lift at the same time at the tires. And the tires will be mounted on stock wheels.

You need to do them at the same time. It's possible not to but not probable.

Possible, but absolutely awful rubbing. I would NOT put on the tires until the lift is on, even then trimming will still be required.

The tire size is 32.8" and typically, anything over 32.2" will rub quite a bit, from what I have seen.

Wait until you have the lift figured out and installed, then put the tires on.

Blurgh I figured that would be the case.

I bought used prg spacers and I just need the hardware for them then either find a used set of shackles or buy new ones from nisstec.

So I didn't get the nittos. I went with Cooper ST Maxx in the 285/75/16 and with a little trimming and melting they fit perfectly with absolutely no lift.

There may be some at full lock but nothing too discernible.

While waiting on my UCAs to get here from PRG, I decided to see what it would take to stuff my BFGoodric Mud Terrain T/A KM2 Tires in front before the UCAs get here...
The tires are LT285/70R17/D (33x11.22-17)
Note: the pictures should appear just as soon as they get approved by a moderator.

Next to the stockers:


To get these to fit with stock front suspension without rubbing, you'll need to remove the the front fender wells and trim a little off of the rear side of the fender:


The tires now make it thru their full range of flex and turn without rubbing.
The picture of the tire stuffed up also shows why going much bigger than 33's would require more aggressive trimming of the metal fenders:
Note: in the picture below, the bump-stop is about 1/2" from hitting, but it does make the full travel without rubbing.




Also on the topic of gearing: going to the bigger tires didn't have nearly as big a hit on acceleration or climbing hills as many posts in here would have you believe. I have a rather steep driveway that I was still able to walk up in 1st gear in 4-Lo without putting my foot on the gas pedal, and I started while already on the incline and at a dead stop.
I'll re-check this tomorrow on some more legitimate off-road hill climbs tomorrow... but so far I don't see gearing as being an issue at all with these tires.

PS: Non-MT tires might not "require" removing the inner fender liner, but the lugs on these MTs were grabbing the outter rear bottom corner, so I opted to yank the liners.

No pics at full lock. Its petty close to touching. But after my 500+ mile trip this weekend i can safely say any rubbing is very minimal after doing the melt mod. On road manners are fantastic for these tires. Highway and country windy roads. And rain on the way the home last night. Never had an issue.
