Biggest tire/wheel option installed!

Just installed a front end leveling kit, 1.75", sold my 20" wheels, got 18" Black Rhino Krugers, and Toyo AT II Extreme 285,65,R18. with the lift I ended up with less than a 1/4" clearance in the front, and had to zip tie back the felt behind the tires. Otherwise, NO rubbing at all!! With the larger tires and lift, gained 3"!

This is the biggest option I could have fit in there, and glad it worked since the Toyo AT II's come in the "extreme" option if they are 285 or larger. More aggressive side walls and wider tread pattern.

Cant wait to hit the snow and trails this weekend!

Re: Biggest tire/wheel option installed!

Im sure fitting that rim and tire combo has a lot to do with the width and offset of the black rhinos. You mind sharing those specs?

Re: Biggest tire/wheel option installed!

What is the offset on those wheels. I'd be surprised if you could bottom out your suspension with those tires but if you can without rubbing let us know.

I have 275/55/20 BFG AT on 34mm offset wheels and the only rub I get it near full suspension compression.

Looks good -- Did you go with the Bilstien 5100, or another leveling kit? Have you noticed much power loss of loss in MPG with those tires?

Looks nice!

What are you going to use for your spare? (it needs to be the same diameter as your tires)
