trying to confirm tire size

My d-90 has the AB OME HD kit on it that came with the car, and I know that the rear springs are 762's but it's in the shop and I don't know the front ones. Will the SS TSL 34' or the LTB 34' work on my stock alloys and not rub? I just added rancho's and i know the travel will increase, also these will be off-road tires and used to travel to places about 3-4 hours away

I have searched and searched but can get a full answer from all the previous posts and topics

The 34" LTB measures more like a 33" tire. With an OME lift you should have no problems at all.

Hi, Ben. I'm probably running about the same suspension as you with 34" LTB's. I'm running steel rims w/ 4" of BS. My rubbing issues have more to do with the fender flares than I think you would have on stock rims. You may have troubles with the wheel wells though. fyi- LTB's are loud, hard to balance, and HEAVY.

I know the LTB and TSL are loud but these will be in my garage until i plan a trip in which I will swap tires. I'm also switching to cones so i might have to buy extended bump stops to keep them from rubbing? I would buy steel wheels but i got a great trade from someone for my BFG's and he gave me 15x8 rims on 32' MTR's(with 3000 miles on them) plus i got to keep the alloys. And from what I hear the goodyears suck out here so these will be my road set
