I want to put some 285/75/16 tires on my stock trooper with stock wheels, I've read that this is doable without a lift but wanted to get some thoughts from everyone here before doing so.

Thanks,
Greg

youre either gonna have to lift or cut and bang stuff to get them to not rub...

I hear you, but have you personally seen this to be true? I ask because others have siad they fit with no rubbing. If these won't fit I'll go with 265/75/16

Thanks!

I havent personally seen it but im running 265s with about an inch, inch and a half lift and I dont think they would have not rubbed if I didnt lift, by the way lifting mine only cost about 50 bucks with some daystar coild spacers (ome 919s accomplish the same thing but theyre 170 bucks)

My 265/75/16's which run a tad large rubbed with no lift only at full lock or turning and going over a good bump, these trucks look killer with 1.5-2" lift for only the cost of spacers or springs, and an alignment, juss sayin' ;-)

My 255/85s barely rubbed on the front under full compression, no rub while turning. If they do rub it won't be bad, I say go for it.

If you have an automatic, then yes it will stress your tranny a bit more than stock would. If you don't have one already, I'd insteall a tranny cooler, especially with 33's.

i'd stick with the 265/75/16 they look good and don't stress the tranny as much, if you go 285/75/16, you won't be able to find any tires in load range c, you'll have to go to d, wich in my opinion are too heavy for a trooper, also the ride quality and fuel usage will suck.

Yeah, I ordered 265/75/16, makes more sense.....Hey,I want to do the 1-2" lift, do I just put new ome 919/929 springs and crank the torsion bars a full turn?

Thanks,
