    I have a 1” lift in the front and currently running 265/75 16. I’m wondering if running a spacer would cause any fitment issues. I’m also wondering if I can run 285’s with the spacer and not get rubbing? If anyone has any spacer pictures on 265’s or 285’s posting would be appreciated. Thank you.

    What 1” lift do you have already installed? Are you talking about wheel spacers or a lift spacer?

    @Professional Hand Model is running 285’s with minimal lift from 5100’s.

    Stock wheels? That matters.

    285/75 16 inch rims with 4" backspace (maybe)
    3.5" lift up front +/- (lowering it this month)
    2" lift in rear

    I have been on 285/75/r16 for about 12 years. No lift (until the recent Billy 5100 at one notch up from bottom). They have always had slight rub on inside frame at full turn.

    Since the front end rebuild with new shocks, lower control arms (OEM), and new cam bolts things are a little different. The front tires are more vertical now due to the newer better alignment and the rub seems to be a slight one on the upper control arm at a hard turn like cutting into a parking spot.

    I just make sure to not turn hard. In your case, you have a spacer lift. Might be different.

    On stock wheels rims. You like my new radar ball on the cap?

    Sorry I need to clarify. I’m asking about wheel spacers. I have 5100’s on notch #3 (1.1”?). I would like to be more flush with the flares. Do wheel spacers create fitment issues? (Interference with the flare?) Would aftermarket UCA’s allow for 285’s w/no rub? 2006 AC stock wheels.

    Can I even fit 285 on a 17x7?

    I think 1.25" is about the smallest spacer that will work, get spidertrax. Not sure about rubbing but pushing the wheels out will cause them to be closer to front and back of wheel wells when turning. Lots of guys run 285's on the stock wheels.

    I have a 2002 Tundra TRD AC. I have Billy's on all four, with AAL in the rear. I just had some 285/75/16 BFG KO2s installed on stock 5 spoke wheels at 4wheelparts. They had to use G2 1.25" spacers to keep the tires from hitting the upper control arms. It was cheaper than getting new wheels but it cost me $200 bones for the spacers. I had some rubbing on the front fender plastic so I removed the fenders this weekend and no longer have the issue but I have yet to stuff the wheels and see if they hit anywhere else. Here are some picture.

    After: 285/75/16

    This is where it was hitting.

    I adjusted the depth of my spacer. I just checked the invoice and it was a G/2 93-83-125T which is a 1.25" wheel spacers not the 1.5" that I had originally said.

    @WaTrout88 what level are your billies set at? How is the ride quality with them on that set? Thanks

    I believe I currently have them at the 2nd to last notch. Ride quality is fine, the new BFGs add some stiffness at first but I don't notice after driving it the last couple of weeks. I did notice this weekend when I came into a steep sidewalk apron a little hot, I had some rubbing so I will need to look into my pinch welds soon and get out the surgery tools.
