Probably because of the backspacing. You'll rub on the control arm. I think you can run them with 35's with a 1/4 inch spacer. Or you can get new rims.

My stock 98 1500 running 315/75/16 (35's) Nitto Terra grapplers. Stock rims and it rubs on control arm at full lock but that is it.......





Still have the sway bars connected FWIW

Default Good place to buy tires

hey guys if you are wanting a place to buy tires i just bought some from discounttiredirect.com. ordered a rim and tire combo so they shipped to my house free of charge already mounted and balanced! 17'' eagle alloy rims with 315/70/17 nitto trail grapplers. most sites wanted $2,000+ but got them on that site for $1400 so thought that was a steal plus they offer one year financing which was a big help since im in college lol

also new rims help alot on rubbing... my 285's on stock rims rubbed and my new 315's on the new rims dont rub at all! hope this helps some of you guys! happy truckin!!

^Back in 2006 I swapped out my ORE 17" rims for Helo Maxx 6 17" rims (BS = 4.5") and 33" Dick Cepek FC 2 tires. Only a kissing on the inner fender well plastic at partial lock. Mounted, installed, lifetime balance/rotation/repairs from Discount Tire = $1486. Lasted for 55K miles

Here is only picture I could with them at the moment.
