looking to fit 285/70/17 on rc bb
 
i have a chance to pick up a set of duratracs 285/70/17s, is there anything i need to run to get them on my truck?, im running a 2 inch rc lift and i have a set of 1.5 spacers..

if i do pinch weld mod and grind the bolt .. whats my chances of rubbing?

i wouldnt go any bigger than my tire size realistically with that lift... you're quite a ways away from that

you will be VERY close to that bolt, even with the spacers.

As far as the pinch weld goes.... i had to do mine and i have 265/70/17's with 1.25" spacers and the rubbing i had a full lock was horrendous. Now i clear the PW by 1/4-1/2".

Omelet and lifted up did it. That was with OME though.

I also saw 305's on a BB but he had 16" wheels.

It's possible without rub. :thumbsup:

Here you go with 16" wheels and a RC lift and he use to put it to use. :)
