How wide of a wheel? You didn't give any dimensions.....20x12 I'm assuming?

I made a thread and then i saw your post....so here goes. Im going to get the Bilstein's and set them at the 2.1 setting. The only thing is, they wont be available for a month or so. How bad would it rub if I put some nitto trail grapplers(295/60/20) on my stock wheels before the leveling kit gets here? Will I be able to drive around like that, or will it rub to bad? Thanks.

I would be waiting until you get the Bilsteins installed. You could probably make the 295/60's fit but it's going to take quite a bit of trimming and messing around to make it work. Not worth your time if you're just going to level it in a month any way.

Thanks for the reply Brandon. I figured that was going to be the best way. These stock tires are killing me though, and i just can't wait to get a mud tire on there. I know it's doing things a little backwards, but if someone else has done it and it didn't require major mods to be able to limp around for a month..then I'd probable take the backwards route.

I've always assumed i had 20x9"s on my truck, but looking at the sticky above, it seems i may have 20x8"s. In this case, the sticky said that 290/60/20's should fit. I've never been big on spacers, but it seems the 1/4" hub centric ones(without lugs) is very safe. Any thoughts on this knowing my wheels may be 20x8's, or thoughts on the safety of a 1/4" hub centric Bora spacer?

Typically the widest you can fit on stock wheels is 285's. There are guys that have fit wider tires but it's iffy. I would have spacers ready in case you need them. There shouldn't be any issues with running a 1/4" hub centric spacer.

In a effort to save money and increase the WAF factor of my truck I'm trying to keep my stock 17's and get some new beefier tires. I'm looking at the Toyo AT II LT 285/75/17.

My question is: this tire says it should be mounted on a 7.5-(8.0)-9.5 wheel. My stock 17's are 7" wide i believe... how big of a problem is this? Am i risking sidewall damage by having too narrow of a wheel? Are they going to wear unevenly/differently than they should?

Not thread jacking, but do you have a URL for those tires? That's the size I'll be looking for once I wear this GYs down.
