Help With Tire Fitment on 2012 F350 Lifted
Bought a 2012 F350 Lariat 4x4 with the FX4 package and had an 8" ProComp Stage 2 lift installed, Toyo Open Country 38x15.5r20 tires and a set of Fuel Throttle 20x12 -44 4.75"bs rims. The tire on the passenger side just barely clears the fender when turned but the driver side catches the fender on the very corner of the tire. If I ever hit a bump while in turn I can expect to be buying a new fender. I really don't want to give up on my set-up I have, but I know something has to change, just not sure what.. I do know I am not putting fender flares on. What would happen if I went from a 12" rim to a 10" rim and went from 4.75" backspacing to 5"? Think that will get me the clearance I need? And would that narrow of a rim wear my tire quicker?
Any Suggestions are welcomed, please.
Thanks in advance for any advice.
(I apologize if I put this in the wrong location)
