I have a fabtech 2" leveling kit on now and was thinking about throwing on the zone or rough country 1+" body lift. I was wondering If I could clear some 275/70/18 Mickey thompson mtz's or toyo open country's with this body lift and little or no trimming. I already looked up trail grapplers and determined I couldn't run them in this size because they are listed at 33.6" for a supposed 33.2" tire. I am just trying to run my stock all terrain wheels and a tire equal to or over 33" (obviously the biggest I can clear). Any suggestions on tires or other things I could do to achieve this without buying a full out suspension will be much appreciated. Thanks Guys

*I am already running 285/65/18 dune grapplers with no trouble, so I obviously want to go larger than them

I'm wondering the same thing. I have a 2010 All-Terrain and have the Readylift 2.25 leveling installed. I'm debating about adding a 1.5 BL to run a bigger tire. I got a used pair of 33 x 12.5 x 18 Nitto Mud grapplers locally for cheap, but not sure how they'll fit.

I think the Nittos would fit. My 35 x 12.50 x 18 measure out to a little bit over 34".

* subscribed....I too have had my head wrapped around this since I got the truck last week. I have stock 17's and don't want to buy rims to accommodate suspension lift spindles. Unless something is out there that works with spacers...Plus I haven't really looked at tires yet to see what options are out there for 17's if any at all.

You will be able to clear the 275's with 0 to minimal rubbing. If there is any rubbing it will be on the sway bar. Do you go to Clemson? I am senior there.

Would I need wheel spacers or anything to reduce the rub on the sway bar? Would the 1.25" bL make a difference from the 1.5"?

And yes I am a rising junior, thats happy to be on the 5 year plan. I honestly think I have seen your truck on campus before.

Do you know what specific size your tires are? I know that's roughly a 33 X 11 but sometimes they list at a larger sizes like a 33.3 or something? If I knew that I could have something to go with. Thanks.

I am a rising 5th year. No need to leave the party early, haha. I live at Clemson Place right behind Sonic.

You shouldnt need a wheel spacer at all. With the tire being only 275 mm wide I doubt you will have any rubbing. That tire is pretty skinny so them being a tad over 33 wont be a big deal. I ran 33x12.5 on just a CCM, just get them man

what brand of 275/70/18'S ? That's the thing, a nitto trail grappler in that size for example is a 33.6" tire which is a big difference from a bfg at which lists at 33.0" for that size.

I have 2.5" leveling kit, 1.5" body lift, 18x9 +18mm offset wheels with 275/70/18 tires clearing just barely. About 1/2" inch in front / rear of tire when cranking.

I am running Toyo Open Country AT.
