If it's about Power Wagons, this is where it'll go.

Any rubbing/trimming with the tires, TommyG?

I have no lift and am running a Thuren track bar and control arms. They do rub the splash guard at the pinch weld in the rear of the wheel well mildly when turning tight or turning with the wheel stuffed. In that third picture where the tire is at full stuff it did not rub at all driving up there. They also rub the upper control arm at almost full lock on the inside.

I am going to trim the pinch weld eventually. I knew going into this that they would do that so no biggie there. It is minor enough that I have no bothered with it for eight months. I'll get around to it when it warms up again.

So put some falken wildpeak at3w tires on last summer. Have about 6000 miles on them so far. 285/75 17. Went with that size to get a 34 inch tire. I use chains sometimes and didn’t want to have to modify the truck.
They are an awesome tire. First like them for the mountain snowflake cause I spend a lot of time on snow covered passes. Super quiet with great traction in all conditions. Living in the NW we see all the weather. Hold the road like glue. In my opinion best all terrain. Only thing with these tires is they want 65psi. Way to much. I run 50 most times on the highway and go lower when needed. Only downside is I have lost about 3/4 mile per gallon. A good trade off for such good traction. They are wearing great. All even and can’t even tell I put 6000 miles on them. No balance issues at all. Super happy. Just my 2 cents!!

No chains that day although I had them with me. Had the tires aired down pretty good. Did use the rear locker a couple times though when I was trying to get turned around.
