Tire clearance in the front will be close. I have a 6" suspension lift with the torson bars crank alittle, 17X9 wheels and 35" tires and I still had to trim my front bumper.

yea thats what the mechanic that lifted my truck said i might have to do, im pretty sure i got to also. When the rims get in, im getting them mounted and balanced and installed on my truck for 60, then ill see how much i got to trim. How much you have to trim for your setup?

We had to trim the bumper lip just a little where it folds around into the wheel well. Just becareful the first time you take it off-road and turn the wheel with the suspension compressed, thats when she'll rub and tear/cut a tire. Maybe have someone guide you and look at the tire to see if its going to hit the fender or bumper.

That looks nice. I really like the rims. If I can give you a suggestion I would try to find a way to put a red strip on the rims.
