    Only one way to find out. I had to do a lot more work than what you have done so far to fit my old 285/70's however they were MT's not AT's.

    I did the rear heat and ac delete, cut the front bumper and an inch all the way around the front fender flare and completely cut out the entire pinch weld area. The 1/4 wheel spacers up front are just for the wheels to clear the brake caliper bracket. They wouldn't fit without the spacers

    My Mander with 285's I will be using these this summer, but next time I buy tires I might look into 275/70/17 for summer tires and 265/70/17 for winter tires.Click image for larger version.

    Looks like a tight fit. Any rub?

    It doesnt seem to rubb other than against the frame at full lock. I havent mounted the passenger side liner yet

    I bought the aev rims when they were available. Im now looking for a set for my winter wheels

    Thanks to everyone in the thread for all the help. Think I also might do the rear AC delete now
