New shoes, before, during, and after

Before



During


After




I may add a small lift to make it look better. There is very minimal rub on the inner fender well at full lock, but nothing that will hurt it.

Looks good!!!

You're a bit out of the safe rim to tire width ratios, but unless you load it or pound it offroad, you'll most likely be fine.. I wonder, though, if the more balloon profile as opposed to the squarer profile a wider rim would offer, accounts for your slight rub??

I'm trying to decide between 35" and 37" on a non lifted truck is why I'm asking and seemingly critical.. I may end up doing a 2" level if I do 37"..

I like the look though!!!

These trucks can swallow seemingly large tires. The ones on mine are essentially 35's with a stock height truck. They rub on full lock but only just a little bit. The wheel (rim) offset and width can help in that department though.

I have a 12" wide tire on a 8 1/2" wide rim, I wish they were at least 9" wide. I also had a little rubbing, but just trimmed the inner fender out. Good to go.

keep a good eye on your tire psi. might want to run them a little on the lower end to keep from wearing the centers out faster.
