Would like to know if a set of 315-75-16 bfg at on 16x10 wheels will fit on my 99 without rubbing it sits level but was that way when I bought it so I dont know if it has a leveling kit or not. Thanks Shawn

I've put them on stock height trucks and they fit. Rubbing is an issue on the leaf springs and sometimes the plastic inner wheel well. On my truck my wheels are offset a little so I don't hit the leafs at all but do catch the plastic inside the wheel well sometimes, like going over a bump while turning.

I posted a thread on this last week with no response, so I'll throw it in here since it's on topic. Can anyone tell us the proper width and backspacing to avoid rubbing the leafs with 315/75/16s? I mean, enough clearance that I could throw chains on if I wanted to?

Ford Cowboy - would an extra 1/2" or so from what you have now on backspacing make a difference in hitting the inner plastic?

Do the 16x8s clear better or worse than 16x10s?

Thanks!

They rubbed the leafs pretty good on my 02 with stock rims. Also rubbed the plastic inside the fender wells. I just tied it back outa the way. I now run 305s and am much happier. I can turn again!!

I wish I could help more with this. I bought the truck with the rims on already so I'm not exact on the backspacing of them. I will try to measure and get a close idea when it gets light out. The ones that did rub the leafs were stock and the ones I have that don't are Mickey Thompson, I think Classic 2's, but not sure on backspacing.

I've never had 16x10's just 16x8's so I'm not sure about that.

I don't know if the extra half inch would help or not. Thinking about it where I rub the plastic now is dead center of the wheel well, so I'm thinking the extra half inch would only move that point out on the plastic that much. I know a half inch isn't much, but as it is my tires stick out from the body around 2 inches. Without fender flares I already think it is getting close to the "lowrider" look with the tires out so far. But like sea71 said you can just pull it back a bit and it shouldn't be a problem.

Actually that makes sense, since MT Classic 2's are 4" backspacing, not 4.5" like the stock wheels.
