    Getting ready to order my new wheels and tires pretty soon. After i get done swapping in the one ton axles and zero rates, i will have about 7.5 or so inches of lift. Going to move the axle 1 inch forward and also adding cut out flares. So im going to be running 38x15.50r16. I want to run 12 inch wide rims, but im concerned about the tires rubbing. any input would be greatly appreciated?thanx

    what are you worried about rubbing on? I am running 12" wheels with 44's on them. similar setup as what you are looking to do. 8" springs, cutouts, and a body lift. I have to turn hard and run it up an RTI ramp to get anything to touch. before I had the body lift I could do the same thing with 40's. you shouldn't have any problems, but every truck is different.

    okey doke, thanx very much for the input. I figured the only way it was going to rub, is if i stuffed the tire up there and really turned it.
