    Hey everyone,

    Sorry for another “will these fit” thread. I’ve been reading a lot of threads and I’m trying decide if I should change the size of my tires that I’ve ordered, but not been installed yet.

    Installing 5100’s on middle setting, 2 driver and 1 passenger side shims with Method Double Standard 18x9 +25 rims. Ordered 285/70 18 Nitto RGs at $312 and 60 lbs/tire Going with +2 CB shackles in the rear.

    However, I’m waffling and thinking of ordering 295/70 18 Cooper Discoverer ST Maxx at around $240 and 67 lbs/tire.

    I’m not really interested in CMC, but willing to remove front mud flaps, do some massaging, and pull the front plastic forward.

    Will the 295s be a good fit?

    Thank you!

    I'm running the 295 Maxxs right now with +14 offset and no CMC required. Front fender liners were moved forward. By way those Maxxs are a great value. Can't vouch for +25 offset.

    I’m running a very similar set up 295/70/18 on 18x9 +25 with a 3inch lift. You’ll need to do some trimming to the front fender liner.

    Thank you for the feedback on the Maxxs. Any experience with STT Pros? They are only $3 more than the Maxxs with a deeper tread. But lower speed rating (not a big deal to me).

    I have a set of STT Pro M/Ts too. Great M/T off road tire. Good in most conditions except ice and super packed snow. Off road snow......great. Maxx's are better for daily driver if most of your time is on the highway all the time with long commutes otherwise either tire is good.

    After studying 34” tire specs and wanting the lightest tire to balance performance and ruggedness I opted for Cooper AT3 XLT. 60 lbs. Fairly new tire and should compete well against RG. Haven’t mounted them yet so can’t give you real world. Just providing another option.

    My appointment is Friday at 10am. They have the RG in 285/70/18 and STT Maxx in 295/70/18 for me. Going to take a look at @Hams recommendation and check out the Cooper AT3 XLT too.

    I did the front lift yesterday, so now the truck sits level. I'll tackle the shackles another time, since I just needed to get the front done to get the wheels and tires installed.

    Numbers almost all within what coachbuilder recommended. The left toe is 0.05 instead of 0.07-0.12.

    Truck looks awesome man! Running the same size tire on my truck as well. If I see you around town I'll make sure to wave.

    I'm new to this and the truck looks great...why add the shackles in the back? Will you then need to adjust the 5100's in front?

    I like my factory rims that came with the truck...there are 275/65/18's on the truck now. Can I get the 295's on those rims I wonder.

    I could probably guess where you live. I’ll do the same if I see you.

    I’ll add the shackles to maintain some rake to keep the TSS sensor happy and prevent the bro lean when I have a load in the back or towing.

    Thanks much...ordered the shims and shackles yesterday. Dave at coacbuilder very helpful. Got the 5100’s ordered too..recommended replacing the 4600’s in the back as well. With the factory offsets on those rims he also recommended the 1.5 inch wheel spacers when I get new tires if I keep factory 18 inch rims

    I have factory 2018 TRD wheels 18 inch with 295/70/18’s and no spacers were needed. I only have 5100’s at top setting and no rubbing at all or any cutting/modifications. Not sure why people add additional stuff up front with the 5100’s

    I felt that I would be doing less preloading on the 5100s by going with the middle setting. Adding an extra shim on the driver side gets rid of the lean on that side.

    Oh okay. I must have got lucky because mine doesn’t lean at all
