HELP PLEASE! Tires and upper control bolt

Hey guys, so I had my 275/65/18 tires installed and took off the spacers to see where the tires looked like and the upper control bolt looks a little close to the tire. Is this okay? What should I do? Thanks for your help!!

Ps there is no rubbing anywhere when turning left or right, including the upper ball bolt. Just wondering if I'll run into trouble on bumps or not.

That's a little too close for me. I'd roll with the spacers.

Re: HELP PLEASE! Tires and upper control bolt

From what I've learned on this forum, the upper control bolt is fixed in it's position in relation to your tire so you shouldn't have any issues.


I can't see your tire flexing enough to come into contact with the bolt.


Maybe others on the forum with more experience can chime in on this.

Re: HELP PLEASE! Tires and upper control bolt

That bolt is in fixed relation to the tire, if the top of your tire is flexing that much to make contact with the bolt, I'd tend to think you'd have other things to worry about.

Too many mods to list for each, so let's just say a lot was done over the years.
