I'm doing a 5" spindle/spring lift up front with a 2" shackle out back on a 89' ext cab. My question is....if I go with a 265/70/R17 (already have the 17" soft 8s) will they fit? I think the overall height is about 31.6" if I'm correct.

Where will it rub? And are we talking during normal driving or flexing off road? How much grinding is required? and is there a better tire size for the 17" wheels? Sorry for all the questions but I have to get the tires this week so I have to make a decision quick. Thanks.

Inner fender and fenderwall.

17" isn't something I recommend for little lift unless it's mainly street driving, due to less sidewall.

I know...I didn't really want to use 17" but I already have 17" Soft 8's from when it was lowered. I went with 245/70/R17 all-terrain tires. They look really good but they are hitting the upper control arm at full lock...prob bc they are 8" wide wheels. How can I fix this? I put on AIM lift spindles which don't hit the steering stoppers anymore and I already have a 5/16" wheel spacer on and it still rubs. I'm afraid I'm going to blow the tire out if it rubs bc its right on the sidewall...
