Good morning, I'm currently running the stock tires on my 22 TB. I recently added the RL 1.75 leveling kit and wanted to go to a bigger tire on my stock 20" rims. Does anyone run the Nitto Recon 285/65r20 on the stock rims and are there any issues with this setup? I'm just trying to avoid any issues with the bigger ball joint clearance and possible rub. I know the question has been asked before, but It's getting confusing to me. Any answers will be greatly appreciated. Pics of this setup would also help making this decision. Thank you in advance.
 
I recommend 1/2" spacers and mud flap delete kit. 1/2" spacers are based on what Readylift told me when I inquired about 285/75r18 tires, which are a hair tale than what you're considering, but equally as wide. Thy mud flap delete is to eliminate rubbing when turning. Rough Country and McGaughy's make kits. Rough Clint is half the price. McGaughy's is available through retailers like Summit Racing.

You can get the mud flap deletes on Amazon too and they are exactly the same as the Rough Country kit and half the price.
 
Thank you guys for helping me out.
I had this exact set up.

RL 1.75 lift with Nitto 285/65/20. Some minor rub at lock in reverse after mud flap delete.

Replaced the Ranchos with Kings, eliminated the spacer and eliminated the rub.
 
Readylift 1.75 with new upper control arms, .25” spacers and Mickey Thompson Baja Boss AT 285/65r20. Kept the mud flaps, zero rubbing.

The Corvette gets my 1/2 of the garage. It wouldn’t clear with lift and tires anyway.
The Baja Designs 40" light bar via GM Accessories mounted on top of the GM Accessories sport bar is what got my truck relegated to outside
 
Well after much debate about what direction to take, I decided to put on some Fuel Rebels along with the 285/65R20 Nitto Recon Grapplers. No rubbing and looks good to me. I appreciate all the comments and opinions you guys offered.

I have a 24 LT Trail Boss arriving hopefully by 6/7/24. I have already ordered the ReadyLift 1.75" with upper control arms, the Mickey T's Baja Boss AT 285/65r20 and 3/8" Bora wheel spacers (availability of 1/4" quality spacers was slim to none) So basically I have the same set up as you and I did quite a bit of research. You have no rubbing or trimming done correct? In researching I have found a few that have said they had to do minor trimming or experienced slight rubbing. I really don't want to do any modifications. Just wanted to confirm your set up and by the way, you truck looks amazing. I ordered mine in the new slate gray metallic as silver, gray or white are my go to colors for easier detailing. Thanks for the posting and for your assistance

Before the spacers it just barely rubbed the UCA because of the aggressive tread pattern of the MT Baja Boss tires. After the spacer it absolutely clears everything fine. No rub on UCA, wheel wells, mud flaps, nothing. You should be good to go. It’s an amazing looking setup in my opinion- I get compliments all the time.
