Tires rubbing leafs
I have a 2001 F350 SRW. Recently replaced worn front leafs with Rough Country 2.5" springs to level the truck. Leveled the truck perfect, added Bilstein HD's on front with the Cooper Discoverer ATR's 315/75/16 on 16"X7" stock wheels.
Do i need to lift the truck for the tires to clear the springs in a full turn? I plan on putting 16" X 9" after market wheels to better suit the tires. The will further complicate the rubbing issue if i am thinking correctly..... the 9" wheel will have a back spacing of 4.5"
My current 7" wheel has a back spacing of 3.5" so the 9" wheel will be 1" closer to the leafs?
I have checked the wheel clearance and measured that i will need the wheel to be negatively offset 1 inch.
2001 F350 XLT SRW extended cab. 2007 grill/headlight/Turn signal tow mirrors conversion. Large Filter NAPA 6637, straight piped, 35"s on 16"s, leveled with 2" Tough Country leaf springs. PHP 6 position Phoenix Gryphon tunes.
