    i want to put these tires on my 2003 toyota 4runner sr5 v6 rwd. Please give me recommendations on what i would need to do to get rid of most rubbing. I already have to buy 1.5in wheel adapters to fit the lug nut pattern. But what kind of modifications would i need to make, preferably a body life, but what would i need, if i need to, suspension lift wise?

    If it ends up being cheaper i could buy smaller tires, maybe 265/70/r17 (i want to use the aftermarket rims i have). Would i still need to but some kind of lift on the car with this tire size? I was thinking putting a 3" net leveling kit. 3" in the front and 1.5" coil spacers in the back. I want to do whatever is cheapest and get rid of all/most rubbing.

    What do yall think is the best option for me?

    Don't know about the specifics regarding the suspension on your rwd forerunner, however, I would not try to do anything "cheap" when it comes down to suspension upgrades because you want to try to stuff some larger tires on your ride. Research what has to be done, talk to people, like you are doing, and do it right the first time. Don't just get it "up in the air" to fit the tires because you are going to creat a lot more problems and spend twice as much money in the future. Just my opinion. Good luck!

    with wheel spacers and a spacer lift both 285/70/17 and 265/70/17 are going to rub on the front of the wheel well on the fender, on the mud flap, and potentially on the body mount once you remove the mud flap. youre going to rub almost no matter what, and spacer lifts aren't a bad idea, but if your stock suspension is getting advanced in age it can't hurt to replace it with new parts that provide the lift rather than spacers
