Another Wheel and Tire Thread

Well its a long story but i completely trashed one of my front wheels (see attached for carnage). Now my hand is pretty much forced to buy a new set of wheels vs buy an oem for an arm and a leg. I plan on doing 285/75/16s on 16x10s with 4.5 BS and -24 offset but, i need to know if they will rub with my 2.5'' level. I will be taking the 3'' spacer off the front of the truck so this is pretty much can a SRW run this wheel and tire combo.


Heavy, if you are reading this i searched and came up short after about 15-20 minutes and don't feel like reading any more threads that don't help me.

Well went ahead and ordered the Pro Comps 16x10s and 285s. I'll post about fitment and pros and cons of a SRW front wheel on a dually.

Another member on here, @INFRNL is running what looks to be a wheel in the front like what you want, only his tires are 315s, according to his sig and pic. It looks really good in my opinion. The only downside I see is having to pack 2 different spares.

the only con(if you can even call it that) is that you need more lift to clear a certain sized tire over the stock wheels. I guess if you carry a spare, needing 2 different spares would be a con. I haven't needed a spare tire since I was 16 and just learning how to drive a long truck(only 1 time).....30 yrs later never needed a spare for anything.
for example, a leveling kit would allow you to clear 33's using stock wheels. You would need at least 4in lift to clear 33's with a 16x10 w/4.5in bs.

I probably wouldn't have chosen a 10" wide wheel for a 285 though. I barely like it on a 315. A huge pro to wide srw up front; is that your tires will wear so much better.

Sadly there are no longer any SRW wheels that perfectly match dually wheels anymore; unless you go custom, 20's, etc.

I no longer have the wheels/tires in my sig (so sad). I went back to stock 3-4yrs ago for various reasons. I recently just lifted my truck and went with the same look. I thought i had it figured out a couple times but no luck. I now have 2 unused ultra wheels

I'm currently running ion wheels. I originally was able to keep my factory ford center caps with some creativity. this time around the wheels are machined differently so it doesn't work out as well as the discontinued eagle alloy wheels(out of business).

If you go to the fatbottom picture thread; you can see guys with leveling kits running 35's/315's on stock wheels. I had to run around 5 inches of lift running the 16x10 wheels.. this time around I have slight rubbing with the exact lift setup (because backspacing is different).

Well just like infrnl said it can be done. Swapped to srw studs up front after removing the adapter, then added a 2'' wheel adapter usa spacer. Bellow is the final result. Very much so like the setup. Ion wheels in the rear, pro comp wheels in the front. If the center caps weren't any different you'd think they were the same. I like how the 285s look for sure.
