My current tyre size is 275/70/R17. I am thinking to upgrade it to next size 285/70/R17. it is just slightly bigger size. But will the 285 size tyre fit nicely without touching anything? my patrol has 2 inches lift, but everything else is standard.

Had to cut a little off the front mudflaps to stop the rubbing when turning.

How much to cut? Just to make it thinner or to cut off the bottom a bit? Can it be heat gun heated them bend back a bit?

I found where it was rubbing and carved it off, you have to look closely to see.

When the time I changed to 275 70 R17 I made a spacer. There are about 5mm gap between the rear door and the tyre

You will find on big bumps your rears just hit the rear flares, easily fixed by spacing bump stops.

As for hitting front mud flaps, we can only guess as you haven’t told us your rim offset, a vital piece of information that completely changes the spot and amount that it will or won’t rub.

There's no spacer installed yet for the current 275 70 R17. I will do some measurements
