    Can I fit a 13" wide tire without rubbing the fenderwell when turning? I'm fairly sure, but I don't want wheel spacers so better safe than sorry! Thanks

    Thanks! What about without the leveling kit? I'm going to get one, but a week or so after the tires.

    13" carcass width or 13" tread width? Carcass width, barely, tread width, nope.

    I have 33- 10.5's on my 01 dodge with the leveling kit and if turn just right they rub so they will be real tight just my 2 cents

    I've got 35x12.5 BFGs M/Ts on my '98 with 2" coil spacers up front. No rub unless turned and flexed. Then only just a light scrub.

    I ran them with no lift for a few weeks. rubbed hard at about half turn either way. cut up the tread, I don't recommend that :doah:

    one of my buddys has a ram with a leveling kit and a 3inch body lift with 36-13.5 iroks. I know it doesnt help much cause he has the body lift too but they dont rub the fenders but they do rub the coils when he turns all the way either direction. could be rim backspacing though cause I dont know what his is.
