    Welcome and go for it. Lots of people here run 285's which I believe are 33's.

    Expect some serious rubbing with a 17x8.5 wheel paired with a 12.5” wide tire.

    Probably on a stock stock suspension, but not on a 3"lift.

    Why so? Lift doesn’t do much to accommodate a wide wheel and tire. It’s more about the wheel specs. I have 33’s on a 3” lift and still had to do a decent amount of wheel well work to get them to fit properly along with new UCA’s.

    I would not do a thing to it. Put on some decent stock sized tires.

    Pinstripes, lots of em. Plus a couple dents.

    I would go with the LT285/70R17 Nitto Trail Grappler tires. They are taller, skinnier, and lighter than the tire you selected. I would also add a set of upper control arms.

    You might need a differential drop kit for that 3 inch lift.

    Expect to trim the front bumper plus push the liner forward.

    So I installed these new low beam H11 LED bulbs and now my DRL are not working.

    Thoughts?
