So no spacers or anything right. Have you pushed things at all off-road with flexing? Just curious I've been asking around the garage alot since I'm deciding on going to the 275/55 or your size It seems like there' alittle more breathing room with your size other than the width. I might get the leveling kit at one point, but wanted to just plug and play with the tires first. thanks!

Re: 285 50/r20

So no running on the insides either? This may be the answer I've been looking for.

Re: 285 50/r20

The 285/50/20 would give you more fender clearance then the 275/55/20 but would bring you closer to the A arm and the stud/ball joint correct?

Re: 285 50/r20

Yup, shorter sidewalls, but wider tread pattern by 10mm, so the tire will be wider on the wheel.

Based on your sig looks like your no stranger to off-road. Do you thing the 285/50 is a safer bet if I want to do some moderate off road compared to the 275/55 in terms of flex or anything else that I might encounter off-road. Been deciding on these two sizes forever on a stock 2014 suspension.

Re: 285 50/r20

I think either would probably work, but you'd get a tad more uptravel without making contact with the wheel well either the 50 series sidewall.
