285's vs. Wheel well liners

Has anyone had any issues with 285 17's rubbing on wwliners?

Also, any feed back on BFG AT's vs. Nitto Terra Grapplers.

My BFG 285/17 do not rub on my Mopar rear wheel well liners, as for Nittos vs BFG Freeze may have some idea on that one

Personally, I think both tires are great! Just really depends on how much you want to spend. BFG's are a little bit more expensive compared to the Nittos I believe. Well went I went pricing around they were.
Alot of people on here are run Nittos and have had no complaints. They run great and last long too.
Like 55 said, freeze will probably help you out.

Btw,

Nittos have a slightly deeper tread I believe, I also read somewhere that the Nitto's were made by Toyo.

But as for rubbing depends on what your truck is? They won't rub a stock 1500 4x4, but might a 2wheel drive..

i'm going to guess that the mopar wheel well liners are an aftermarket installation??? as far as the rear i dont have much of anything under there so have plenty of clearance...the front is another story, get a little rubbage on the airdam but little trim job fixed that

I too am running the 285/70 17 BFGs. I Love these friggin tires. I have a 03 2500 with the wheel well liners in the front and back and no rubbing going on there either.

285/70/17's have about 1"-1.5" of clearence between the tire and the liner (rears). I jacked the front up 1.5" so I have plenty of clearence up front.
Biggest diff between BFG and Nitto... about $50.00 a tire.
