    I want to run these on my K25 pickup. I don't want to do much cutting if any. What would you guys say I need to do for a suspension lift to clear these, 8", 10", 12"?

    Those things are wide. Be careful that you stay legal when you put them on. I had to add some fender flares and they still stick out, but hey I like the way they look.

    I was planning on putting on flares, probably bushwacker cut outs. I like the way they look. Any idea on what backspacing I should run?

    I am running something like 2 3/4 or 3" of bs and half of the tire sticks out of the well. I am also runneing 12" wide rims with beadlocks so add anothe 1 1/2 to the width of rim. Check out my gallery to see how much mine stick out.

    I am also running like 8" of lift and cut alot of the fenders out to keep them from rubbing.
