    Hi everyone,

    I'm completely new to this but I'm a Hawaii woman and I own a 2015 White 4Runner and I'm looking for tips, testimonials and advice.

    I just purchased a 2.5" suspension lift and I can't decide what size rims and tires I should go with.

    I'm stuck between 285/70R17 and 275/70R17 on either a 17x8 or 8.5. I was advised I may need to modify my bumper to fit the 285 which makes me lean towards the 275.

    The lift specs say it can fit up to 33" without modification and trimming and 285 is roughly 22.5" which means it will clear but after the comment was made I'm thinking maybe under compression is when it would rub?

    Either way advice on the tire and rim size would be appreciated.

    Also I like the Pro Comp 7028 series rim but I see the Method Standard seems to be a highly liked rim here on the forum and I'm wondering if its simply a choice of looks or if function and quality that plays a roll in the matter.

    I'm excited to build my 4Runner so please any advice or comments?

    youre more than likely going to rub with an aftermarket wheel with either size, its just a matter of how much. compression should be too much of an issue, but turning will cause rubbing.

    Thanks! Here is one picture of her; nothing but tints at this point to separate her from being stock but give it a month and she'll be a bit sexier with some sweet modifications.IMG_20160131_145614.jpg

    Welcome to 4Runners.com!
    U should be able to clear the bigger tires w/ a little fender trim and maybe a CMC?
