Pics 38 x 15.5 x r20 rockstars & Kuhmo's

Hey Guys,

I can get a good deal for 38 x 15.5 x r20 rockstars & Kuhmo's with 4.75 backspacing. Would this work? Also any pics of this setup or close to it. I'm not sure about the 15.5. Right now I am running 37 x 13.5 x r 18

Trucks in the sig but it has a 6" lift

Thanks

The bs is 4.75 not 4.5 if that makes a difference.

Thanks

To the top, need info asap. We think it will have plenty to clear the fender, just worried about not being able to cut the wheel with out hitting the leafs with little turning span. The new wheels will actually have a 4.75 back spacing, would this be enough?

I have a 10" lift with 38x15.5 on 16s and my tires rub the leaf springs at full lock and hit the inner fender sometimes when turning and hit a bump. I cut the inner fenders and it hasn't rubbed on those lately but i don't know the backspacing or offset of my wheels. If i was to guess it was about 4.75-5. sorry i can't be of more help.

here is a pic that sort of shows how much they stick out.

Nice rig... Thanks for the info and pic. At this point any info is good info. Probably isnt the best idea but they are a really good deal. If it doesnt fit i guess i could always sell them or someone said pro comp makes a kit to go from 6 to 8. Ever hear about this?

If i get these i would have to head out tomorrow morning guys.

thanks

It really depends on the kit your running now. If it was a spring kit in the front, meaning no hangers and shackle replacements you can just add those to get more lift. That is probably all the procomp kit will do. PMF or sky-manufacturing have decent hanger/shackle kits. Another thing you would have to watch for with adding to the lift would be shocks and brakelines. The shocks you have might be able to run with an 8" lift. With the 6" we put on my brothers truck his brakelines seemed almost maxed out so those most likely need to be lengthened.
If you are getting a deal on the tires/wheels its definitely worth a shot. They should fit and if needed will fit with trimming of the front plastic bumper and inner fender. A buddy of mine had 38's a long time ago on his 2wd f250 and all he had was a 6", which looked near the same as a 4wd with a leveling kit, and did some minor trimming. The tires were a little narrower. Your rig would look pretty badass with some 38x15.5on 20s under it though.

here's the link to the PMF hangers:
