2007 DC sport/ Billies

I am considering 5100's and 265 70 17 on stock wheels. I was wondering what this would look like. If you got pics please post. I was also wondering what setting I would need to level the front up, I will not be running anything in the rear. Thanks 2007 DC sport

do you have any rubbing with that setup?

would you have the same results if you went with an after market rim? (17x8 w/4.5" backspace) would there be any rubbing in that case?

thanks

Thanks for the feedback. I may opt to set them up to 2.5 and put an aal in the rear.

It rides soooo much better w/the 5100's. Looks pretty damn good to. Stay at 265 using stock rims.You wouldn't clear the uca's if you went more.

ohh... i guess i should have been more specific...

if you were to run a 265/75/16 on a 16x8 rim with 4.5" backspacing, would there be any rubbing?

i ask because i was interested in that same tire size and shock combination that you have, but i wanted to get aftermarket rims. it seems, however, that the aftermarket rims are always 8" or wider with at least a 4.5" backspace.

i was wondering how that would fit and look

Going up to a 75 sidewall on stock rims would look like ( ) On 8" wide rims it would be less. 4.5 b-space brings the wheel out 1".

Fit good & look great. (that's just me)
