32.5" tire with JUST leveling kit... has anyone tried?

I know 31.9/32.0 seems to be the max anyone is doing with the leveling kit only. 275/55-20 & 275/65-18 but...........

there seems to be a lil more room to roam, no? 285/55-20 with a 9" wheel with +12 to +18 offset.

Has anyone experimented, before I do?

Re: 32.5" tire with JUST leveling kit... has anyone tried?

I just ordered 275/55/20's and was real close to pulling the trigger on 285's instead but I pussed out last minute. Decided that the 275 setup looked fine and it's proven to work. If you do go for it, def post up how it is!

I just looked at pricing on the limited selection of 285/55-20s available. NO THANKS. that made the decision easy. Tires start at 260+ and most of the ones I wanted were 300+. 275s I go!

Re: 32.5" tire with JUST leveling kit... has anyone tried?

Alludc I was curious so I ran those offset figures. With a 275/55/20 tire vs stock 265/50/20 tire and wheel with a +56 offset. Here are the results.
275/55/20-+12 offset= 1.7 inch farther out than stock setup
275/55/20-+18 offset= 1.5 inch farther out than stock setup
Both will fill wheelwell by an extra 18mm approx 3/4 of an inch
Speed difference will be at 60 mph actually going 62.8 mph
Hope this helps you.

where does the +56 offset come from? From what ive found, the factory 20x8 wheels are a +31 offset

Don't forget about the upper control arm bolt that the tire has to clear.
