Op, please note that you cannot fit this size tire without lifting another inch and getting wheel spacers.

Usually it's 2 1/2 min , somebody on here claimed it worked on their 1.75" lift , but I find that hard to believe

Yes we are. Be my guest and tell everyone that they can fit it, and then when they get all mad because they just dropped money on tires that don't fit, they can yell at you.

Would it appease you in the future if I always took the time to write "for 99.9%" of people at the beginning of the sentence each time?

And the only way to "prove" it to me would be for me to see the tires in person and for me to drive the truck myself.
