    These were a tight fit. Rims are Eagle 197 18"X9" with -11 backspacing. Tires are 285-65-18 and lift is 2.5" Readylift. Of course, I had to trim the bumper. I rough trimmed it and will go back and make the radius more smooth. The driver side rubs on the back of the inner fender when the wheel is turned to the left.

    Thanks dude! I'd like to go with a bigger lift, but then I would have parking issues and then it starts getting really expensive.

    I went and looked at your truck-that is sweet!! I love those rims, but the red wouldn't match my truck. I like those and there are some with red around the holes that look pretty sweet.

    Wow now that is a tight fit! Looks real good though, I wouldn't think you would need a lift kit unless you want go off road in it. I'm with Mike about the black handles, and also the trim is normally chrome instead of black. Keep up the great work! :glasses:

    Looks really good, but you wouldn't have to trim if you went with a positive offset rim. :great:
