I have RadFlo 2's and AAL.
I want BFG TA KO's in load range D not E and they aren't available in 285/75/16 D
They are in 295/75/16 though and that seems like only a tiny bit bigger but from searching round on here it's iffy without cutting the fenders.
I've done the melt mod.
I need to order from TireRack today in order to get them installed before snow storm!











Thanks!!

You do realize that a 295/75/16 is only 0.2" larger than the 285/75/16, so it only sticks out another 0.1"? (Its also only going to stick out to the sides by a measly extra 5 millimeters...)

You could also do 305/70/16...33" diameter but a larger foot print.


PS - Using shocks with built-in bumpstop extensions (Prevent uptravel/compression to raise your ride height) is evil and immoral, and robs you of precious wheel travel....and area bad idea.
