How to fit 39.5/15R16''s with a 3" leveling kit

when i bought this the fenders were already cut i had to cut them a little more and make it look a lil better. here are some pics of what was cut i do not rub unless i turn all of the way then the tire hits the leafs... i have a new painted set of fenders and chrome bumper so i did not care about cutting it this is how it is going to stay intil i can get another lift... hope you guys like it...

I sure hope you don't plan on doing any off roading. Them tires don't have much room to go up.

Also I hope you don't plan on running them tires to long. They look pretty wore especially with that one feathered pretty good.

But anything will fit with a saw or other means of cutting.

You must like spending lots of money on tires. I don't see a point in running that big of a tire on a pavement pounder but whatever. Those tires look like they would bottom out on the fenders if you hit a speed bump to fast

i paid $200 for the tires. i dont go offroad because it is my daily driver and i take care of it.... that is why i hve a mud truck but some people dont think ahead or have money to waste if something breaks i dont...if i am going to go offroad i will take the $400 mud truck and if it breaks oh well it can sit there until i have the means to fix it...

As long as you have a plan. 200 bucks is all good but what are you gonna do when they wear down? also are you running stock gears? Stock trans? Keep you eye on the trans as well if your runnin stock gears anda stock trans. It wont like turning the big meats for long
