Default New tires/ rims/ spacers

Hey all - been hiding out for a while. Anyway ...

Got new tires - 285/70r/17 AT
Rims - black rock dune 941 17x8, same back spacing as stock
Spacers - all pro 1.5"

Was planning to just go ahead and do the BMC.

Would I be good? Thanks for any help!

Uploaded photos to album.

Question : with new tires, spacers, etc., steering seems a little looser. Why? Normal? Can I adjust it?

Depending on tire and pressure. If it is aligned already.....
An true aggresive off road tire will feel funny or looser on the payment .

They're all-terrain. I think there is too much air pressure. I had a friend do the BMC, and he aired up the tires. I believe he told me 60psi. I talked to someone here at my work, and he has his at 40ish. I'll back it down and see how it feels.
