    Ive decided im doing 33x12.50xR18 red label general grabbers with black xd series cranks. The cranks are 18x9 with an offset of 0 and backspace of 5. Will this rub on my truck? i have fabtech shocks with i believe ad-a-leafs. Is that 3 inches? i bought the truck like this. I need help.

    They will rub like crazy. Stock backspacing on a first gen is 4.5". So those rims actually sit 0.5" further IN than stock.

    Look for something in the 3.5"-3.75" backspacing range to have a prayer of fitting those tires.

    I asked a guy in town that has the same truck as mine and he's running 33x12.50xr20 and he did no trimming and has the same lift, he has no rubbing at all!

    Hes either lying, or he never turns the wheel, or flexes the suspension.

    I think they could actually rub worse because they are larger than 33" in diameter

    What backspacing are his wheels? That's a big part in fitting tires
