    Yeah I recently found out those tires are actually 36" not 35"

    those seem pretty tight, even 35's may end up getting destroyed by rubbing

    Lancer, will the 315's fit without the lift? I was thinking about getting some myself, but wasn't sure if I would have to put some extra lift to get clearance.

    are you sure its a good idea to run stock wheels on a lift? i thot u needed to get new wheels with different backspacing otherwise your more prone to roll over?

    i've ran stock wheels on all my lifted trucks before and never had a problem. everything should be fine. just lifting a truck makes you more prone to roll overs no matter how wide your rims and tires are.


    Pats1pab1- i'm not sure if they will fit without the lift, i've got 265's on it now, they may fit with some trimming and torsion bars turned up.

    315's will not fit on a 1500 unless you install a lift kit.

    Thanks, HD2DMAX. I'm just looking to get my truck a bigger tire and have it sit a little higher, maybe 3 or 4 inches.
