    about to pull the trigger on these but wanted to make sure they will fit.

    My truck set up - 5100's up front set at 1.75 and tsb for rear.

    Tires will be BFG all-terrains - 275 65.

    Thoughts? Should I have any problems?

    Thanks in advance.

    Yes, they will fit (as long as the hub bore is 106mm or larger). You'll need to trim a bit of the black fenderwell plastic though.

    see if you can get ahold of 'Lundy' on these forums, he cut me a pretty good deal on these wheels, he works for a BMF wheel distributor. He might be able to get them to you faster than 4wheelparts, for a better price.

    I run 265/65's and had slight rubbing on the front. I'm sure 275 will have more problems.

    I ordered through discount tire. Talked to BMF during the week and they are waiting on wheels to be made. So not sure when they are coming in.

    Jrod what lift are you using? Just curious on rubbing I might encounter.
    Thx

    It's a 2" front spacer lift. No lift to the back. If you use bilstein's or OME in the front to lift it 1.75" - 2", the effect is still the same and you may have the same issue, but it all depends on your wheel backspacing and tire width/height. That's what causes the rubbing in this case - not the lift.

    your alignment numbers have an affect as well. One side of mine rubbed more than the other, and it corresponded to the amount of caster that they got out of the alignment.

    Lifting it 2" is the perfect amount IMO, because they got the alignment back in spec without UCAs, and it changes the look of the truck a lot.
