The side wall it too big. the tires will rub against the Bolt on the Control Arms on the front tires. If you do plan on Lifting it, then it won't be a problem. You could possible put spacers BUT I'm not 100%. I'm sure someone will chime in!

So from the look of them next to the wheel, its night so its kinda hard to tell.

But im definitley gonna have to cut the bolt and to the pinch weld mod fo thses to clear...

do I need to do anything to the rear?? or will that be fine as long as theres no rough stuff.......????

They will definitely rub in the front. Plus if you have those you are most likely are going to have to do the "Pinch Weld Mod."

Nothing else in the back. I recommend a 2" Budget Lift though :thumbsup:

I have 245/75-17 Duratracs and they would DEFINITELY rub with out my 2" lift. They still rub on full lock on the inside but do clear the bolt.
