Bought some wheels and tires... Hope they fit.

Hey its been awhile since I have updated you all on my truck. Got the Diamond Eye 3"DP 4"Straight Pipe on..... LOVE IT. So far I have the 6637, exhaust, and gauges. Now I figured I needed rims and tires so...................................... I found some on the good ole' CL. They are 18" Diamo 18 karat rims mounted on 325/60/18. Hope they will fit. They are equal to 33x13.5x18 which is pretty dang wide. They came on 3 tires and one was a blow out and was chewed up very little. I found an additional set of Mickey Thompson ATZ 325/60/18 with 50-60% tread just like these so went ahead and spoke for them. If they are too wide what are some cheap ways for me to get them to fit my 1996 stock suspension f250?

Here is a pic of one

you may have to trim up the bumper a bit depending on how bad your springs are sagged, also you may rub hard on the leaf springs on a hard turn...

Good advice on bending the bottom corner of the bumper inwards! I might try that!

Did you triple check that the rims are 8x6.5 bolt pattern. I had to deal with that recently when looking for rims for my truck. Lots of 8x170s out there and if the seller isn't positive what they have it can turn into a pita.

Yup we measured 2 times to make sure.. Center to center 6.5" exactly. Im good with that. Im just hoping the tires will fit with out too much $$$ because IMO they look bad a$$ next to the truck. If I did need to lift it what is the cheapest kit to get the tires to fit?

I've seen people run 35's w/ no lift on these. My superlift lift will support up to 37's (or was it 38's)

A add-a-leaf in the front might be all you need
