Will after putting 55K on my 255/70/16 Revo's It is time to get new shoes.
I have a 2001 Edge 4x4 that has 101k miles on it.
I have been eyeing the BFG TKO's in 265/75/16 or in 245/75/16(stock)
I have looked at the charts, used the search, read other forums and still have the nagging question . . . "Will the 265/75/16 fit without rubbing or a T-crank???" Given that the 2001 Edge 4X4 model has that plastic fender flair I would be rather miffed if at full lock, taking a curb, rock or small furry animal my factory fender flair,(or other parts), decides to go on a trip. I went over to the guys at Off Road Unlimited in Burbank, CA and the guy took a look at the wheel-well and said that 265 will rub. He's dealt with customers complaining about it. He also did not recommend a T-crank saying the ride would be poorer.
What I want to do is fill out the wheel wells and not worry about rub at the inopportune time. So is it doable with the 265's or should I stay stock 245? At this point I only have money for the tires.
And yes, I realize that I will probably get flamed for being a noob but I guess it has to happen sometime . . . be gentle
