    you dont need a lift to get rims, i dont think unless their 33 inch rims you would need a lift to clear them. but maybe something to do with clearing the UCAs:confused::confused: whats the backspacing on them?

    Do you know the offset? And what is the width you are looking at? Those are the factors in why they are telling you that you might need a lift to clear.

    Relax bro. Get the information first. If he is right, he saved you some issues. If he is wrong, then call him a Richard.... :eek:

    Well when you lift your truck you'll probably wanna run 285s...I think you'll want a 0 offset and a -4.5 backspacing
