    Oops, I forgot to take the delta and half it.

    What truck do you have? And lift? I ask because I have a level kit with 33's and they rub. My tires are 12.50's. So that may be something to think about when making this choice. It was something that was easily fixed with a grease pencil and a dremil tool.
