    Question, Have a 6 inch suspension, 3 body (probably going down to 1), and major fender trimming. Will I have problems clearing 39.5x18 (15rim 3.5 backspace). I know I have height for it, but never dealt with such wide tires. Will they fit on a 15x12 rim? or do I have to go to 15x14. If they don't, anyone interested in a set of practically new 39.5x18x15 tires? Compared to new 322 a pop, I can get good deal on them, is it worth it? I know these could not be a daily driving tire, not a least for enjoyment, so what do you all think?

    If you ain't hurt, you ain't playin' hard enough.

    Send <font color=blue>BOWTIE</font color=blue> a PM. I think he's running 39.5 Boggers. I saw your truck on the member's page. That thing is BAD A$$! well its going to be once you get done. Umm.. I think your axles would do fine... they're only 1 TONers! As for the ride, they're not too bad on street. I run Boggers and you get used to the sound. Its just hard to get them balanced properly. Keep us posted on the project.
