New tires woes, will it fit?
Well I had ordered a set of rims and tires only to find out that Nitto won't let dealers ship tires to Canada from the US, as well the rims I wanted, there are only 2 available until May. I was going to go with Nitto Trail Grapplers 295/70R/17, with a 17x9 rim.
Now the question I have is, the stock rims are 17x7.5, will I be able to get a 285/75/17 Toyo MT on the stock rims or will it be too wide? Also I know a 295/70/17 will fit my truck without rubbing, but will a 285/75/17 fit? Truck got a leveling kit, and under my profile you can see pictures with stock wheels and 265/70/17's and see how much room I've got, they are pretty well 32's, so I can't see why with a leveling kit 34's won't fit, but I figured I'd ask before I throw down the cash.

the toyo mt's should fit on that rim although its not always the best idea. i would still go on ahead and do it. and yes the 34's will fit. my buddy had a f150 and all he did was crank the torsion bars and he fit 35's stock with no scrub, but he had no flex. i think you could go bigger but i wouldnt. hope this was helpfulSUCKIN GASCHEVYTRUCKSHAULIN ASSHendersonville NC

a 285 on a 7.5" wide rim will work fine on your truck. Also, the 285/75R17 is only a half of an inch bigger than the 295/70R17 I would think that you will be ok if those fit. You may rub a little bit in the front, but nothing a little plastic cutting can't fixPETE
