    Alright guys another question about tire size. I am back and forth with keeping my stock rims and Hydro-Dipping them. On my factory rims +60, I'm looking at p295/70/18 tire. Of course this will be with a 2.5 front leveling kit. That size compared to my factory 275/65/18 is a big jump diameter wise, and speed difference is significant. I do not want to install speed calibrator. Will this setup work. I know there could be some modifications or removal. All opinions and suggestions are very much welcome.

    There are guys with Pro (same offset 2 inch lift in the front) who installed 295/70/18 without an issue, so my guess is that they will fit without a major issue. You may have to push in the front plastic liner a bit (which I still had to do to mine).

    I think you will need to install a speedometer calibrator with 295/70/18. It's 2 & 1/2 inches taller than stock. If you don't want to install a calibrator, have you considered 275/70/18? I think it will look pretty good with 2.5 inch level.

    Thanks Chphilo, yeah just want it to fill wheel well out. Wish they had more availability for a 285/70/18 tire, but slim pickens in that size. That 275/70/18 might be the way to go, an inch taller, but same width.

    Can anyone tell me what the actual width of 295/70/18 St Maxx is. I'm getting 2 sizes. 11.66 & 12".

    Cooper specs say 12" and so does my ruler. I just added these on Friday, but my new wheel is +18. I also have a wide open front bumper and did the body mount chop too. The other Pro guys are using Toyos on stock wheels and the Toyos specs say 11.8". I believe all they did was remove smaller front mudflap? Hopefully they will chime in on that...

    I'm looking to put them on my factory rims, +60, just had my 2.5 leveling kit installed and that's the size and tire I am leaning towards. Hopefully I'm not chopping or removing.

    I'd go for it, with that lift you should be in same boat as other PRO's. Your going to like them! :yay:

    Just a few, more to come
    You'll need to "massage" the plastic fender liner with a heat gun but shouldn't have to cut anything. Wheel spacers recommended, I run 1.25" .
