    it depends on the spacing of the rim i run stock rims and had 33's on with no lift and never had any rubbing if you have deep dish rims you will rub

    I had a 6" lift with my old 33x14.50 SSR's on 15x10 alcoas and it looked very good. now I've got a 9" lift with 35"x16"boggers on 16.5x14 weld typhoons and it looks even better. /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif
