John, if I calculate correctly, that's an increase of 39mm on the sidewall.

Do the tyres rub on the body at all? Or do you run your D4 at extra height all the time?

Thanks

I'm run the Johnson Lift Rods all the time, which affectively sets my D3 in off road mode all the time. But when I drop the suspension, it goes into normal height, and it still clears the wheel arches.

Thanks John, but does that not put more strain on the suspension components?

I'm getting a set of Compos soon, and the previous owner has BFGs 265/65R18s on. I think I'll keep these until they wear out and then re-evaluate.

I've had them on for a year now, with no issues so far. I believe a few people are running these in the US, and I've not heard of any issues. If there will be any problems, then I suspect it will be the CV joints as these will be running at a different angle.
