it rubs the felt fender liner at full lock. Mainly only when the suspension is flexed a little though. These tires ride GREAT. My MPG did take about a 1-2mpg hit though from the previous BFGs i had in 275/70/18. I still havent taken it offroad yet though. I'll update when i do!
2015 Silverado Z71 w/ 2” leveling kit. Running 18” Method grids in +18 offset 305/65R18 Falken Wildpeak AT3 (34x12) And they fit like a glove. No off-road driving yet, but everything in town, parking lots, driveways etc. has produced zero rubbing even at full lock and no trimming has been done. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
Well i ended up buying the 305/65/18s (34X12s) and they fit perfect with no rubbing or trimming, even at full lock. Haven't been offroad yet, but have flexed the suspension in driveways and such and still haven't rubbed.
Well... I got some new shoes for the truck yesterday! Snagged some Falken Wildpeak AT3s in a 305/65R18. These show on the sidewall to be a 34x12 and they fit with absolutely no rubbing or trimming with my 2" level and +18 offset Methods. Granted I've only done some city driving so far. But at full lock turning in and out of parking spots and my driveway, i have yet to rub anything. These things look awesome too. I'll post pics shortly.
Ok the responses in this thread are golden hahahaha In light of giving an actual response, if it's a daily driver i would say mid travel. That's what i've been looking at. It's more practical for day to day, at least for my uses it is. As said before, the baja kits looks pretty great.
I would say if you want tires any bigger than stock, you're way safer going with a less extreme offset. Those -44s will stick out A LOT and you're VERY limited on what you can run without chopping a bunch of metal. stock offset (around +25) all the way out to 0 offset are much safer and the 0 offset doesn't give quite as much stance but still looks awesome.
A -44 offset is going to be pretty far out there. I haven't paid much attention to that particular offset, but i would imagine you might have rubbing with a lot of different tire sizes on that much of a negative offset. Maybe someone else can chime in and help out with experience or findings? The 295/70/18s i was referring to were on +18 offset wheels, the -44 will stick out probably 2.5-3 inches more than the +18 offset.
35s will rub on a level pretty much regardless of offset. I've seen some people able to trim the fender liner and get away with it, but it still rubs from what i've heard. Never heard of anyone pulling it off successfully. Biggest tires i've seen fit without rubbing are 295/70/18 nitto terra grapplers.
I'm running BFG KO2s in 275/70R18 and did on stock wheels for a couple years with no issues whatsoever. If you level you shouldn't have anything to worry about. I also ran 285/65/18 BFG KOs on stock wheels with and without a level and never had any rubbing. I would think you would be perfectly fine with those. They shouldn't be wide enough to rub anything. At most I would think you might have to trim the felt fender liner just ever so slightly as the 275/70s are decently tall.
