    Couple "?"s for you. When the rears stuff how bad does the inboard side of the tire rub the wheel tub? Does the aft side of the back tire catch the rear 1/4 pnl?

    I like the stuffed wheel well look!
    I'm hoping to put 37-38's on about 4" so that looks to be about right /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    WOW. I like how you've kept the CG low, and added massive ground clearance. How heavy are those compared to the 38's you had?

    What are you doing to keep the inside of the rears from rubbing the wheel tubs? Large spacers? Very little backspacing? Combo? TIA.

    I run less backspace than that, plus about 3" more lift and my tires scrub the crap out of my inner wheel tubs in the rear...

    Hey Shannon, I'm running the 38x13's, and I plan on IROK's later too, so if you have the old tires, can you do a side by side?

    I think they look pretty good, but I'd want a bit more lift with them, the whole "too big of a thing stuffed into too small of space" asthetic thing

    Thank you

    Oh and in general I think they don't rub because a lift that small wont have the potential upward travel of a taller one before the spring distorts
