7" or 8" Rim for 285/75/16
I lifted my X a year ago (approx 2") with adjustable Bilstein 5100 shocks set at 1.5" and new coil springs and Bilstein 5125 shocks and shackles on the rear (new leaf springs are ordered), in anticipation of getting BFG T/A KO2s, 285/75/16 - BTW I'm very happy with these tires. I have a slight rub in the front, which I've read can be corrected by a melt mod. Recently my shop made the point that the tire is better suited to an 8" rim. I've narrowed it down to a Vision Warrior 375 rim, 16 x 8". When I posted the question on Amazon, the response was that they'd stick out 1.25" and that i might have to cut the fenders... I'm concerned about rubbing again, but I really don't want to cut the fenders. Thanking you in advance for any advise, suggestions or options.
