Default 285 on stock 17s

Will there be any rubbing with 285 70 17 on factory 17" rims. The chrome clad style not the off road style? I have cranked torsion bars just seems like it's a tight fit with my 265 70 17 right now..wanna be sure before I pay to have them put on

should be okay with a 285. any bigger and you'd have issues.

but, each truck is different really.

see if they can install just one real quick and test it out. before they bother with all of them

You may want to check out yokohama geolandar a/t 285 65 r17 as well. they're a tad bit shorter in height then the 285 70 and a bit wider in width. I think they would fit better and look better as well but that up to you of course which looks better.

I went with a brand called thunderer. They are the old bfg
Mud terrain tread design. I wanted a little bit of a narrow tire. So it looks like I nailed it. I gotta post up a pic
