    I just sold the motor home, so I can finally do the 3/4 swap I started last year. I need to buy wheels and a 4 inch lift. Summit seems to be the place for the wheels, but what about the lift? Anybody know who's the cheapest? Also, I have 33x12.50 tires, should I get 8 or 10 inch wheels. My next tires will be 35s or 36sx 14 and I don't know if they'll fit on 8 inch wheels or not. Thanks in advance for any help.

    I wouldn't go any wider than a 12.5 on a 8 inch rim, so if you're gonna get wider tires eventually I'd go for the wider rims.

    what he said, they are cheap and pretty good lifts, as far as wheels go, depends on if its every day or straight off road, if so get some bead locks, alotof guys are going to hummer wheels, which ifi didnt drive itevery day idhave them as well, a 14 will fit on 8 causei run a 17.50 on a 12, lol low low air pressure, i run 5 lbs, lol

    14wide what kinnda tires?
    What kind of tires are the 33's?
    I would go with a 12wide if you plan on running a 14wide tire soon. BTW are you gonna cut for 36's?
    BTW I wouldent even think about 8 wide wheels
