70 or 75 will both rub a bit, if you crank up the torsion bars you may be able to get enough room.

By modifying it with a 3" body lift make a big difference in the driving? Want to go with a bigger tire and no rubbing. What size tire could be used with this lift?

I'm pretty sure that the body lifts allow up to 33's, depending on the width and backspacing of your wheels, with no rubbing.

It depends if your Av is cladded or WBH

It depends on what kind of turning radius you are willing to sacrifice

It depends on how much trimming you want or don't want to do


You can put 35s under a stock height cladded Av...just don't plan to drive it anywhere except on a drag strip  :laugh:

WBH - BFG AT's 285-70-17 with ZERO rub in the front with ZERO torsion bar adjustment.  IF I have a loaded trailer or a big payload I can scrub the rears on the inside on the plastic inside the wheel-wells.  No problems at all.

Has anyone tried to put 315/70/17s (34x12.4x17) on the stock 17 inch rim? Or is that too much for that rim?
A 285/75/17-(34x11.22x17) is pretty close to that tire just a little wider. Does it make that much of a difference?

Ok thanks. I forgot to mention that I'm putting a levelling kit on. So that would help?

Yeah... i had high hopes for the i simple and the cord wouldn't have been an issue if they stood behind it but they told me i had to buy a whole new unit when i called and told them the cord broke the first time
