    I just want to run a bigger tire like this and a little wider so the tire will stick out some but the 285 75 r 17 doesn't stick out enough and I also have issues with the upper control arms. I put mrt spc adjustable s on it and they didn't work. I've got a leveling kit on it as well. Please help

    Install wheel spacers or 17’s with a lower offset.

    Wheels or spacers will determine the “stick out” look

    Have this size and 1 1/2 inch back spacer on mine. Make sure if you use spacer that you get extended thread lug nuts for front.

    Cut, cycle the suspension to see what's still in the way, and then cut until it clears. For the control arm interference you'll need different wheels or spacers.
