Tire question

Hey guys do you think a 285/60R18 will fit on a stock rim without hitting the traction bars in the rear without adding wheel spacers? Thanks in advance!

Tire Size Calculator
275/70/18 would be better is over 1-1/2 inch larger and stays under the magic 11 inch mark at 10.83 as mentioned in the above thread.
Tire rack choice results
275/70/18 = 33.2 x 10.83 (25 choices)
275/65/18 = 32.1 x 10.83 (45 choices)
285/60/18 = 31.5 x 11.22 (this breaks the 11 in mark) (12 choices)
I know you can make yourself nuts trying to chose. I have been there. I was scared and did not go big enough now I wish I would have researched more.
I have 17 inch rims so my choices were much more limited. I did not realize there were so many more options for an 18 inch.

Yea. Picked up 4 Terra Grapplers from a chick for $225 that were brand new with stickers still on them. The girl said her boyfriend up and left but forgot the tires. Haha. His loss, my MAJOR gain!
