    I am putting a plow on my 2004 2500 duramax. I am going to crank up the torsion bars in the front a little as well. I am looking at putting a 9.2 boss v or vxt on there. Question I have. I need new tires as well. Putting 265 or 285s on. I have 265s right now and without a plow the dont rub. I know with 285s, without a plow they sometimes rub, and may have to cut my air dam and inside fender a little, do any of you guys have a 9.2 on a 2003-2007 chevy truck with 285 size tires? do they rub real bad or not? thanks

    I have 285 BFG AT's on my 05 Duramax. I cranked the torsion bars, installed timbrens and shock extensions and I have no problem at all. Nothing rubs and I never cut anything.

    If I could do it again, I would have put 265s on instead of the 285s on my 2006 Duramax. After trimming, I still get some rubbing on a full-crank turn, and less than full when going over a good bump.
