I plan on running some 32-11.5-15 or 285/75/16 bfg a/ts or hankook dynapro m/ts. I'm running out of options and I've thought about just running 16"s but damn they are expensive.
Any advice or direction from guys running 15"s or really backspaced rims? Thanks in advance
Okay so I have 15/10's with a 3.76" BS with 33/12.5's and I needed bushwhacker cut aways to fit in the front without rubbing on the fender. After the install i do not rub on the fender at all on the "street" I still haven't been wheelin sense I installed them I'll let you know if i rub after Saturday
. As for the fire wall I'm rubbing pretty bad off road at full stuff but i don't have my sway bar on so i can stuff the tire all the way up to the bump. I'm tubing the fire wall to stuff 35's when i buy my next set of tires.
Okay for you A 15/8" with a 3.31" BS and a 33/11.5 shouldn't be that bad. I mean your going to have to do the pinch weld mod and some flair trimming but it shouldn't be too bad defiantly not as bad as mine.
