I answered his question to the best of my knowledge in my first post (post #2 in the thread). So for anyone, including you to complain about my answer is BS.
Probably need to get your eyes checked there bud.
Picking up my new 2013 F350 Lariat sometime in the next few weeks. This is my first brand new truck ordered just how I want it, so I'm super pumped!
I've had trucks on 35's and 37's in the past but I want to go a little bigger and a LOT wider. I want to run 38x15.5x20 Toyo's on some Fuel Maverick or Fuel Driller 2-piece wheels. What would it take to fit these under the truck?
The choices for widths/offsets are as follows:
Toyo recommends a 20x12 wheel for the 38x15.50x20, so I'd like to stick with that if possible. 20x14's would be cool but I'm assuming would exacerbate rubbing problems? Would these tires on a BDS or Fabtech 8" lift be okay? I have already ordered Bushwacker fender flares and will be running bulletproof set back mud flaps. I want to keep the stock front bumper, and I really want a setup that will not rub without needing to go with glass fenders or something silly like that. I drive down a lot of lease roads and when I'm not at work this is my daily driver so I do want to be able to make turns in parking lots without rubbing on my fenders.
Thanks for the advice.
I even bold'ed the relevant parts. You tell people to search so much that I'm sure you're tired of hearing that word and wouldn't want to do it yourself.
You told me that wheel width shouldn't matter for fitting them under my truck. Which is directly contradictory to everything I've ever read on these or any forums, or experienced in real life. A wider wheel will tend to flatten out the tread pattern and make the shoulders a little bit wide, especially on something like a 15.5" wide tire going from a 10" to a 12" or a 14" wheel. I searched, thanks. You answered, in a way I believe to be incorrect, one third of my question. You're like seeing a doctor for back pain, a headache, and bad gas and he sends me home with rogaine and a link to webMD.
Also, thanks for that post about fitting 40's on a powerstroke that is a show queen, with no mention of how it rides, if it rubs, or if he ever even loads it with anything. That's a visual circle-jerk post, nothing more. He even said in another post that it barely clears. Now, I'm assuming that guy never went over anything more aggressive than a speed bump but if his 40's on a 10" lift barely clear that should obviously bring some doubt to mind if you're thinking about running an 8" lift on 38's, but actually using the truck.
So yes, your answer about wheels when everything I've actually seen is different is BS. If you don't have anything worthwhile to contribute to my post besides "search" or a half-assed answer, **** off.
