    Hey y'all I just bought the fat bob's lift with the extended aal. i'm looking for new wheels and tires. i'd like to stay with 15's but would like to be able to run 32's and have the widest tires i can safely run. i was hoping to run 11.5 or 12 inch wide tires. can i mount those on a 15 x 8 tire and what kinda offset and back spacing should i run? Thanks for the help.

    Welcome! Check out neslerrah. He is running 33/10.5 on 15 in wheels. Also Alex platinum is on 32s. Trimming will b involved and removal of the black box. There is step by step instructions on this. It can b done.

    Thanks man. In going to such a heavy wheel and tire combo, i'm thinking around 60+ should i think about upgrading the shocks as well as regearing? would running 4.10's be low enough?

    That's what I'm thinking. I'm playing with 3 sizes right now with the fb lift. I'm actually thinking about 32/10.5. It's what has looked the best on the truck. Have to trim the front bumper a tad so I'm shopping around for a new one with more clearance. Plan on ordering ASAP so I'll keep u posted. Test fitted 33/12.5. Last weekend and it's just too wide. With the stance of the truck and no flares 10.5 looks good. Plus it's lighter. Check out east coast gear supply for the gears. It's an 8.4 rear. I'm gonna run 4.10 to get my power back.

    A lot of guys use the Billys hd. U could replace the front. It will ride better. U did get the longer rear shocks from fb right?

    yeah i got the procomp shocks with my order.

    Skinny, i plan on taking my truck out to calico and other mixed enviroment areas so i would like to have the widest tires possible to distribute the weight of my truck as much as possible. can we run 32x11x15's with no trimming to the front bumper. i dont mind trimming the wheel well pastic and had already planned on taking off the black boxes.
