Can you please list the offset for those wheels in your original post? :)

Based on all the input here, I'm going to be very surprised if that does not work just fine! Same size I am moving to as well, so I'll be looking for your feedback.

Right on! They should fit fine and probably won't rub the frame except in extreme circumstances. Keep us posted and don't forget photos.

I have the V6 with Fox 2.0 coliovers in the front which lift it 2 inches and no lift in the rear and im running 265/70/17 falken tires and I only have rubbing when wheels are at full lock. Not supper bad but definitely noticeable.

I would have predicted that with the Falkens. The TerrainContacts are a bit tamer ( a tiny bit smaller too) so should have more clearance. The Duratracs tend to cause rub as well. :)

I believe a 255/75/17 (32.1") fits and @Thunderbear is running a 265/70/17 (31.7") under his truck. I think he didn't have to modify anything to make it fit but maybe he can elaborate. I think I've seen where someone fit an even larger tire but I'd have to do some searching. I'll update the 1st post when we come to a consensus.

Install done, fits without touching anything, at least when not moving. I think these are going to work! :) I post some pictures when I can take some good ones.

SO @F8LZ71 - I never really thought much about the same size (265/70 17) being different with different brands. Is that mainly due to the design of the side of the tire? To that end, based on the post above, what about BFG KO2's? More likely to rub or about the same as others?

Yeah you would think that every tire within a listed size would be the same dimensions but they are not. Some tires run larger than others. If you add sidewall armor and larger shoulder lugs for off-road protection and traction the tires may be even larger. For example, the Wildpeak AT3W P285/70/17 is listed as 32.8" in diameter and 11.3" section width. The LT285/70/17 is 33" in diameter and 11.6" section width. The difference isn't huge but could be just enough where the LT would rub and the P-metric wouldn't.

Now compare the LT285/70/17 Wildpeak AT3W at 33" x 11.6" to the LT285/70/17 BFG KO2 at 32.7" x 11.5" with 9.2 tread width. Both are the same listed size but the Wildpeak is actually larger and could cause rubbing on some vehicles where the KO2 might not.

Now in the case of the Duratrac which is sort of a hybrid all-terrain/mud tire the section width (widest part from sidewall to sidewall) is smaller than the highway oriented Defender BUT the Duratrac is both taller AND wider at the tread width which makes it much more likely to rub on our trucks because the tight spots in our wheel wells are where the tread would touch, not the sidewall.

Duractrac LT285 is 33" x 11.2" with 9.1" tread width

Michelin Defender LTX LT285 is 32.7" x 11.5" with 8.8" tread width

So if you're tight on room and worried about rubbing you should be looking at actual tire diameter, section width and tread width if they list it. Unfortunately Falken doesn't list their tread width.

I just installed a 6in lift and put on 286/65R18 KO2 on my rig(just shy of 33in). There is some slight rubbing so going to have to look at cutting and trimming. I was hoping that with the lift everything would fit just right, but I was wrong.

yea i looked at that size too,,too much like a pizza cutter,,want the wider tire for stability and will most likely change out rims with a 0mm backspace for that peaking out look and wider stance.

RC 2" front, 1.25" block in the rear. Cooper AT3 4S 265 70 17. They fit great, but I removed the front WeatherTech mudflaps as they were really close.
