Lies lies lies... I got 32s and even with a tbar crank( max ) I rubbed everywhere I went, every turn and it was the worst mistake of my life. I listened to a few select people on here that said I can go 285s with a crank and won't rub but they failed and lied to me. It's okay though cause it's all fixed with the suspension lift but just beware! And dont listen to everything you hear on the Internet I have got alot of false info from these forums where people think they know what they're talking about but in reality sometimes they just give an answer because they "remeber" seeing it on the forums or what nit

He said his truck is the same height as an early edge(which I own) 31's have an 2 inches clearance on everything(I can provide pics) and I have NO torsion crank.


And andrew 285/75/16's are a 33 not a 32. So whoever said that is retarded lol

I looked up pics of the 06 sport, and it looks like it would have the same clearance as mine.

285's arent 33's they are 32.8s but i do get your point. I was told by numerous people that 285 would fit when it actually wasnt true.

This is true you may not rub but you truly have no flex which in your case may or may not be a bad thing but i am just pointing this out. If you go with aggresive tires people normally get a 3" body lift to go with it.

sorry if i came off like a twad lol. I'm puzzled why you were havin issues still though.

I agree 33's with no acual lift doesn't give you much room for flex.

but back to the original point. 3" spindle lift with 32's is a perfect combo. 33's fit well and still have room for some flex but fabtech actually does recommend a 32 with "minor trimming" which from all the kits i've put on the newer silverados and the spacer kits for the tacomas is literally no trimming. maybe a mudflap delete but thats it lol

sidenote-what backspacing do you have andrew? Maybe that was the issue?
I've seen more than once where the wheel manufacturers put the incorrect backspacing on wheel boxes. when i got my 20's in for my silverado 2 of them were actually different than what was stated from american racing haha. but me being the lazy a$$ i am i just staggered them lmao. makes rotates a pain but whatever
