Great photos! Very nice.
Nice Truck :great:
Nice looking truck. Wheels & tires sure stand out.
lookin good! how much fun did ya have fittin that big of a tire in there?
mmmmmmm donuts... nice truck, how do you like those tires?
Well, my other set of tires are a 325/80/16 which is the same as a 37x13.50x16 and I didn't have to modify anything to make them fit. They did their own notching of the black plastic inner fender so I didn't have to adjust that. The new tires stick out of the body about 6 or so inches up front and a few in the back. I had to get extension fender flares from jcwhitney that were 4.5" added coverage. Nobody had anything close to what I needed. I had to add those right to the stock flare and it still sticks out in the front. The back set of flares should be in the mail soon. I had to shim the bumper out 2" with Advance Auto Parts 2"round spacers my buddy there found for me. 8 spacers for the 8 bolts that hold the bumper on. Next I had to remove my Westin nerf bars because of the tire rubbing up against it. And last, I had to turn the wheel and cut some of the back bottom side of the fender to be able to turn lock to lock. You can't really see the cut fender cuz it's right at the bottom of the stock flare. I still have to touch up and notch out more fender due to the rubbing when you are on any kind of an incline and the tire comes up to kiss the fender. It's been a great project from the get go and I absolutely love the FCII tires. I have them on both sets. I will probably get close to 50K miles out of them and they ride super quiet. Two Thumbs and Two Big Toes up.
sounds like a lot of work to fit those in there!BUT worth it in the end! although that sucks you had to take off your nerf bars..i know how pricy those can get and wouldnt really wanna have to sacrifice a mod already installed to add another mod! but still looks awesome!
very cool truck!
awesome truck! i thought those were Ion rims, word of advise to anyone, DO NOT buy ion rims, they are cheaper but you get what you pay for and they are peices of crap, 90% of the time you cant get the centercaps out so you cant balance the tires
