    I am looking to buy a Rough Country 3" suspension lift kit for truck that already has a 2" body lift. Rough Country recommends using 285/75r16 but if my truck is lifted 5'' total what size tires should I be using?

    you typically need 6"+ to run 35's. So 33's should be easy and 35's possibly with some trimming.

    34's would be pushing the limits?

    might be getting there but I know sometimes rubbing can be avoided or caused based on the amount of backspacing on the wheels and tire width. Maybe someone with a similar setup will chime in with what they have fitted.

    That tire should fit with the combination you have
