clearing 36's with a leveling kit.

I ahve been toying with the ideal of lowering my truck back down to stock height with a leveling kit. I dont have my stock wheels and tires though. I do have a set of mickey thompson 36 15.50 20 mtz on 20x10 moto metal 951. Does anyone know if i will eb able to run these tires with just a leveling kit. I also have the f350 block in the rear. thanks

I would vote no, thats a Hella wide tire you will probably rub on the rear part of the fender at full lock.

lol damn i figured so. I know you can run 35 12.50 with a leveling kit so I was hoping I could squeeze my 36 on there.

you can pretty much squeeze 37s with a leveling kit, but the 3" extra width is the issue. Or just never turn?

35 X 12.50 will fit fine w/ a leveling kit if they're on the stock wheels. Once you get something wider than stock, or w/ a bigger offset you're gonna have to trim a little of the front bumper (that's what i had to do) 15.50 tires you're definitely gonna have to do some trimming.

Im already trimmed. Maybe i can run them with a 2.5 inch leveling kit. I am not sure about taking my lift off at the moment anyway. Just looking more towards the future as in end of summer/winter

I have a 2' kit, so maybe the 2.5" would work. Like i said though, i don't think something 15.50 wide is gonna make it. But it's worth a try

Can you test fit it? Put the frame on jacks, Pull out the springs and track bar, rachet strap a 2X4 in place of the spring then turn the wheel to see what it would do. I have a feeling its going to be more the fender than just the bumper.

Or just turn wheel full lock now, and look directly down on the tire, does it intersect with the fender or bumper?
