I have 245 and 275, just like other people, and it doesn't rub even with a rear passenger.

I don't think I agree with that, I would say at the most it would rub with a pasanger in the rear going over a speedbump. I don't know about oem 18's but my hre's have plenty of room to the fender.ill be either upgradeing to a 285 or getting a spacer. And up front I run 245 no problems. My advice is run a 275 for now and see how it is you can alweys go bigger in the future

A member on this forum runs 285, shaved his fenders, has the right offset, and still rubs whenever he goes over a speed bump with his 50 lb son sitting in the back. I can't imagine what it will do if he didn't shave his fenders.

Yes, I'm sure. I can hear it when I'm in the car with him. It's slam, maybe just 1/2 inch lower than mine but remember that he shaved his fenders to compensate for his bigger tires and his low drop.

You guys are forgetting a few important factors, OFFSET being the most important one of them. If he's running a conservative offset on the rears, he should be able to fit 285s without rubbing. But you have to put into consideration the wheel width, ride height, camber, and whether his fenders are rolled or shaved (seems unlikely).

OP, whenever you ask these questions, you have to be more specific, and mention ALL those variables to get the right answer.

^^^ Exactly.

I used to run 285's on 19x10.5 in the rear with a 32 offset. I never rubbed, even with two 200+ lb. people in the back, lowered on GC coilovers. Fenders are not even rolled.

I still run 285's in the rear with my current setup, but no longer have a back seat, so it'll still never rub.

+1 on offset... if your offset is too aggressive then yes you will rub with 285's but any offset 25 and larger will allow you to run a tire that large. If you want a little less off set than you need to start dialing in some negative camber/shave your fenders.

I'm running 285/30/19 Toyo T1R on 10.5" wide +25 wheels and they're fine.
