    thanks again to everyone
    As you've probably noticed, the standard size wheel/tyre is pretty tight in the wheel well. Anything larger than standard size will not fit. However, because your 245/75/16 is only marginally larger than standard size i think that could be achieved. if you carry a compressor you can deflate the tyre and squeeze it in then inflate the tyre when required.

    It'll be a tough one! My 255/70's only just fit when fully deflated with the valve centers out. 245/75 is bigger than mine (by about 1/2").

    Onya Keithy. Bit of research done.

    An old photot of my Rangie, here's one with the Silverstone 275/70R16. Mud terrains which only just fit without modification. As you say they do scrub a bit on full lock when suspension is lower that high mode. Here's a pick for your file.

    Sorry I missed the original. Simex Jungle Trekkers in 33' (290-70-16) work fine too.

    Small am,ount of cutting for front wheel arch part of chin spoiler and all flaps removed. Still get lug rub at full lock though, and scrape from rear over high speed lumps on hwy and std settings. Also, some minor scrape from front on lock when articulating at shorter compression.

    What offset? Also, you have 50mm extended bump stops yes? Curious if they rub at all. Still a bit to go on my 265/75/16 but would like 33's and the 285 tread width.

    Looking good by the way. I like black rims on big rubber
