285/75/16 on American Outlaws?

Im thinking about some American Outlaw 16x8 with a -6 offset. I would prefer pics with the buckshot and some beefy 285/75/16. Rightnow I have that size tire on my stock pro4x wheels and want to see how far the tire will stick out. The side lugs on my tires stick out past the body work a little bit now, just wondering how much wider it will look.

A 16x8 with a -6mm offset will rub pretty hard with the 285/75R16. You'll need to remove your mud flaps if you haven't already, you'll also need to do the pinch weld mod and either trim or heat and push the fender liner. Also, if your truck has the lower trim piece under the bumper, you may need to remove or modify that as well.

You should be able to get away with keeping the mudflaps but you may need to trim them a hair. If your truck has the lower bumper trim piece you may need to remove or trim that a hair too.

In the future, if you upgrade your wheels you will most likely need to remove the mud flaps, trim or reshape the fender liner and trim the pinch weld but for now, with your stock wheels, your modifications should be minor.
