    Default 18X9 Pro Comp 6031's & Nittos 305/60/18

    Well I finally got my pro comp wheels put on the other day. I was having some rubbing issues with my nittos rubbing the a-arms when the wheel was turned all the way but these new wheels have a different off set and let the wheels stick out a extra 1.5 inches and fixed that problem and look awesome....

    But now with the new wheels the tires are rubbing the finder wells right up against the cab...

    New

    Old


    So now I'm trying to think of how I want to fix this new rubbing issue. If I go and try to just do some trimming, its a pretty big chunk of metal and I really don't wanna take a hacksaw to my brand new truck. So I'm leaning towards ditching the leveling kit and going for a actual lift kit...


    I'm thinking Rancho??? What do you guys think????

    Go with the rough country lifts. They are priced really well and I have had no issues with mine what so ever. I think most people if not all on the site would agree they have a quality lift at a great price! Here is a link to the lifts they have available for your truck! Hope it helps with your decision. http://roughcountry.com/chevy_4wd_1500_lift_kits.html

    Have you thought about buying wheel spacers?

    Yeah I was considering rough country main for their price but I came across someones thread that got a rancho for $1100 and that cought my eye.

    But yeah I think wheel spaces would make it even worse...

    Mfleetwood on here got his 4" Rancho lift and new shocks for $1100. That lift looks sick and I think it would clear your 305's just fine. ReadyLift has a SST lift that you might want to check out.

    Truck looks awesome with new wheel and tire combo!!

    i bought my first rough country kit for my old 06 and it was the 6" kit to my door was $972 and i just ordered the new kit for my 93 with the kicker braces and it was $999 to my door in 3 days. i've had no problems with my first kit and i'm looking forward to getting started on my second kit (its sitting in my garage next to my tires and driving me nuts!!!!!!!!)

    Yeah I came across his thread and asked him some questions but I checked out the ready lift and it looks like an option now as well...

    Why does lifting pull the wheels back into the fender wells? Mine have a 5 in backspace as well...

    How would wheel spacers make it worse?

    i think hes running probably a 4.5 or thereabouts backspace, going any further out will cause even worse tire rub, the tires are getting into the fenderwheels near the passeger/driver doors.
