    what is the largest tires with out a lift that has been put on? im wanting to basically do that but i dont want to mess with all the tire rub.. i was looking at 285/75/16... would that work.. maybe with minimal rub?

    and if you have done something like this.. what did you have to cut out..

    I have an 06 and the largest the tire shop would go was 265 75R 16. My buddy with an 05 went with the 285's and he only had to trim the front 'spoiler'. You really don't notice the customizing and the 285's look good. Check with your tire shop. They do this stuff everyday and know what fits and what doesn't.
