|str8t six||you may gain a little more mpg with the AT tires, but they will still be heavier than the stock tires.|

Just a follow up...
Happy with the tires, but the MPG drop of roughly 2.5mpg was a bit of a kick to the wallet. I expected some drop off, but a full 2.5mpg was more than expected. I can also attribute some of that to the raised front-end from the Thuren 1.75" coils.
In the spring I'll get some less aggressive all-terrain tires to run during the dry season, then I'll be able to see just how much the tires impact the mpg relative to all-terrains.

|Spazoid||This is how I trimmed mine. Also cut and bent over the pinch weld and repainted.|

|str8t six||mine rubbed with the stock wheels and with my -12mm offset wheels. Just have to trim some plastic.|

I can’t seem to add pictures.

Just did a thuren leveling kit and the coopers and I don’t have any rubbing AFTER trimming some. 20x10 -24mm offset
Coopers are 35x12.5

|kylant||where are the tires rubbing?|

How loud are they?
I did a lot of trimming but squeezed 37's x12.5 Falken at3w's with no lift. They slightly rub the control arms.

Cooper STT Pro 305/70/18
Just put a set of these on my stock suspension 2015 3500 CC SWB (wheels are Vision Warriors 18x8.5 +18) and they definitely rub. Seems like moreso on the driver side, which seems weird to me (why not equal rubbing?).
Anyway, I trimmed a tiny bit of the fender flair tab and that helped some, but a bit more trimming will be needed on both sides.
I should have waited until I installed a leveling kit prior to getting the wheels, but I'd read that 35x12.50x18's on stock wheels only rubbed slightly, so I figured I should be okay. I was slightly wrong...
It also appears, after further review, that the STT Pros are 35.08", not the 34.8" that my public school math calculated, so lesson learned, not a big deal, just thought I'd throw it out there for anyone else considering a similar setup.
I'll offer up a review and maybe a picture or two after I can drive it on roads that have turns...
