Will 285/75R16 tires fit with no problems on stock rims with a 2-1/2" lift/level kit? Or will bigger ones fit? my stock tires are 265/75R16.

Thanks

I have that size(Firestone Destination MT on Nismo rims) on my LE with NO lift. Minor rubbing up front on the fender liner. Just take a heat gun to it and push the plastic in.

yea they will rub if you dont trim the inner fender wells. These trucks werent designed with wide fender wells like ford chevy or dodge.

Removed the front valence and slight trimming on the front mud guards, but fit fine in stock wheels.

I just replaced my front shocks with bilstein 5100 adjustables and set them at 1 inch to level the truck. Would I be able to run this size tire on my stock 16 inch pro4x rims without any rubbing?

I am trying to go with this size as well but want to go 295/75/16 on my stock nismo rims. I will be using the PRG 3" 4WD advanced Lift kit.

Yes, it will rub. The type of lift doesn't matter as much when you are lifting between 1-3". With stock wheels and 32.5-33" tires you will need to make some modifications to keep them from rubbing. This may mean that you need to remove your mud flaps, it may mean that you need to trim the fender liner, it may mean that you need to do both. Tires are like shoes they vary in size slightly from brand to brand.

You'll need to do more trimming and modifications than the guys running 285/75R16 to get this size to fit without rubbing. These are 33.25" tall (another .5" taller than the 285/75R16 size) If you are planning to take your truck off-road stuffing this big of a tire up in your fenders may limit what you will be able to do.

Will not be off roading . Its a mall crawler. Use my Jeep in the woods. Just like the beeed up look. Will actually be using a PRG 4WD 3" Advanced lift. Swapping the front bumper to the Shrockworks front bumper since its already cut at the forward angle. And I know I gonna start prepping the wheel wells when the lift is being installed. Will be buying the tires off you i f you able to meet or beet my other guys price. THANK YOU for the info though. Trylly Appreciate it:)
