    315 bfg drag radial WILL rub on the inner fender well. I put a set of mine on and didnt notice it until I made a hard turn and you will hear it rub. Turn the fender well in a bit and you will be good to go.

    Does anyone run 285s in the back and 275 up front. Do you notice a difference. Are there any problems at all with doing this in the back. I can't see how much diff it would be. It wouldnt be like doing a 315. If there are any repurcussions I will stay away from this.

    thanks

    That is the size I run on 18" front and back and I have no problems with it. If you have 17 front and 18 rear that might make more of a difference too. I had a clearance issue that a BFH fixed in the rear, but I'm lowered so if your stock you might not have that problem.
