    So my wife is amazing and just ordered the Pro Comp Stage 2 lift for my 2010 DC 4x4. I currently have 17x8 helo's with 4.5 backspacing and was wondering if these are going to work with wider tires and the lift? I keep thinking that 285/70/17 will look too small with the 6" lift, but not sure if I may need 17x9 instead for a wider tire? Any help would be greatly appreciated. I'm hoping to use my current wheels if at all possible to save a little extra money.

    The 17" wheels I had would not clear it. It was obvious because I tried to mount them and the spindles would not allow it to fit. Call Pro Comp at 619-216-1444 and check with them.

    My issue is that the Pro Comp kit is already ordered....and so I'm having to decide my wheel and tire decision based on that...

    as long as the back spacing is 4.5" on a 17" rim you should be fine...

    I know a few running 18"+ rims w/5" back spacing but they can clear the spindle due to the larger diameter of the rim...

    will i called pro-comp an they said 09 or newer HAD to have 18 inch wheels
    FOUR WHEEL PARTS had my kit on order ,i called them ,an let them know that it would not work with 17in wheels, they called pro comp,called me back, said i was right ,an returned my deposit
    if who ever ordered it new your rim size, an order you the kit any way ,then its there fault,
    now if you ordered it on-line your self, you may be :jerkoff:
