    and imagine that ive run into a problem. almost didnt see that comin

    anyways i love the way these thangs look they are 31x10.50x15 (yeah i chickened out of the 33s)

    the problem is they are too close to the brake caliper up front. i would imagine the back fit ok tho.

    WHAT ARE MY OPTIONS? wheel spacers probally which i dont really want cuz i only need .25-.50 of an inch

    i also just heard that i could grind down the calipers a little. does anyone have any experience with this? i put the tire on and tightened the lugs hand tight and it was spinning freely just too close for my liking
