So does anyone have proof that I could run a 285/70/17 with RC 2" kit and bilstien shocks/struts with 17 x 8 wheels with 4.75 BS...? Or am I stuck with the 265/70s? I plan on running an A/T tire (if it matters.)
thats a big tire, I had 265's with the 3" OME and still had rubbing, had to bend the pinch weld. Plus you will never get that size spare to fit, I bought a used 265 tire and it squeezed into under the belly barely as it was used! You will have to go on the roof for that size spare.
