Re: thoughts on a set up for a buddy

He can but it will look goofy, i personally like more wheel well than the look of a over stuffed tire. i wouldn't go over a 32'' IMO

Re: thoughts on a set up for a buddy

Yes, that's where it rubs, But no so much on the pinch, more the plastic inner liner.

At full lock you don't rub at all, just at 3/4

Re: thoughts on a set up for a buddy

i dont understand that whole spot there

the inner wheel well pushes in in that 1 spot and it really limits the amount of space in the well.

i could fit a 34 or even a 35 on my truck if it not for that

Re: thoughts on a set up for a buddy

I'm gonna be going with the RR 2.25" lift here shortly... already have the Bilstein's front and rear. I'm picking up my sahara 18's with 255/70/18's (32") dueler a/t's on them next weekend. Also gotta get the spidertrax spacers.

Re: thoughts on a set up for a buddy

hey Moneen, i was looking at your setup, because im thinking of going with 20" SRT reps and 32" tires.

I was playing with a tire calculator and it says the diameter of the tires on your 22's is 30"?? is that true? they look way bigger.

Edit: did some more reading... i didnt think in a million years you were removing the lift every summer... kick ass man! thats pimp!

Yup, I removed the lift this summer. It's a pretty simple lift kit, so it's no big deal to remove it.
My Toyos are 30.3" which would look stupid if I left the lift in, So I got some 255/75/17 BFG M/T's for my stock chrome clads.

Next set of tires will be 305/40/22 Terra Graplers, Then I can keep it lifted year round!
