Thinking about 24's QUESTIONS??

If I wanted to put 24's with 37's what is the smallest lift that I could go with?
I'm afraid of rubbing so I don't want to go to small. But at the same time I like when a wheel takes up the whole fender.

37" will clear with no lift, but it'll rub when at full stuff. I'm guessing by the fact that you're even considering 24s that this vehicle is a parking lot pimp and therefore full stuff is a non issue. Your biggest concern is going to be tire width and wheel offset. Too wide a tire with too tight an offset, and you'll rub.

On a personal note: 37s look like rubberbands on a 24" wheel. I think they look terrible, but its not my truck.

ahh nothing like a huge chrome wheel with a black rubber band for a tire around it.. to be honest, i think it would look silly. i wouldnt go any larger than 20's.

they should clear with a 4", but a 6 is going to look better
