So a guy here in Jacksonville had these tires and rims on Craigslist for $1000' Mickey Thompson Baja MTZs 285/75R16 on Eagle 589's. We tried them on and the rub the TRE slightly. So on Monday I get to go talk to a guy in town that makes spacers. But I only ended up paying $750 for them. The tire only have about 5000 miles on them too.

the NJ word..
Just remember that adding the wheel weights will bring them even closer to TRE's.
I had that problem with Outlaw II's. They fit fine. Well that was before the wheel weights were added. And 33X9.50's usually need alot of wieghts!:hillbilly:
Needless to say the boots got trashed.

Yeah I know about weights I am running 33x12.50 on 15's and they are BFG m/t and they are getting very worn needing a few ounces to balance them.

If they aren't rubbing very much, then get a set of the 1/4" spacers from Summit or a similar shop. I've run them for several years with no problems.
