    Clear what? Do you have bigger brakes, bigger tires, lift, drop?

    Thanks for the welcome and answering so quick Cheez. my truck is still all stock, I put oem wheels with snow tires on this winter and every once and awhile when turning & hitting bumps or dips, the tire hits up front.

    As long as you keep the same diameter and width tire as stock (i.e. 31" x 11"), regardless if it's a 17" or 18" rim, you'll be fine. Another good reason to keep the same diameter for your purposes, if you don't have a programmer, is so that your computer reads the correct speed regardless which set of wheels/tires you have mounted.

    BTW...Welcome to the Club!!!

    Here is a link that will let you play around with tire sizes if you're looking to keep the same diameter and width that would fit the 18"s.

    [MENTION=37237]mfleetwood[/MENTION] pretty much nailed it. I went from stock 16" wheels to stock 20" wheels on my truck. The only problem I've had is the speedometer/odometer being off.

    They should fit fine. But as mentioned above, your speedometer will be off a little.

    I know they'll fit. They've been on for nearly a year. I was giving my situation to help [MENTION=53883]BILLP[/MENTION] feel better about going up 1" in size.
