I think I gained an inch from my stocks to my BFGs. The BFGs I think measured at 34ish? I dunno, but I rub when turning the wheel all the way. I have 4" spindle lift with SAW coilovers adding another 2.5"TITANS04 said:im putting on a spindle lift with 2.5 inch spacer and gonna run 35s do u gain any lift from a bigger tire i currently have 31s and its a 2wd does anyone have a picture of one with the same set up
Currently, you have 31" tires, you're upgrading to 35's. 35"-31"=4", but you're only gaining additional lift from the centerline of the tire to to where it touches the ground, so the 4" has to be divided in two: 2" of lift. If you expect to gain 6.5" of lift from suspension upgrades, and 2" of lift from the tires, the total is 8.5" of lift above your current configuration. Since most people calculate how much they're lifted based upon a stock setup though, it's still only 7.5" of lift. Saying it's 8.5" would be like me butting 28" tires on my truck, then saying well, going from 28" to 35" is 3.5" + 6" PC lift would be 9.5" of lift. That's completely incorrect because it's really only 7" based off the stock configuration.TITANS04 said:im new to all this lift kits so im trying to figure out how high the truck will be the tire thats on the truck now is a 265 70 17 wich is close to a 31 ,, so with a 4 ich spindle lift and 2.5 inch spacer i would bassicly get 7.5 iches? since the stock tire thats supposed to be on is a 33 and u put a 35 u get a inch?
Too wide a tire + wrong offset/back spacing wheel = R-U-B-B-I-N-GAzTitan05 said:here you go...I went 305/65r18 (34x12.00) because I go offroading alot and to the dunes and my 325's rubbed....cant wait for taxes so I can get some coilovers...any for sale out there 1200 bucks is steep?
4" Spindle's + Donahoe coilovers minimum preload + 5/8" spacer = about the same lift.TITANS04 said:im putting on a spindle lift with 2.5 inch spacer and gonna run 35s do u gain any lift from a bigger tire i currently have 31s and its a 2wd does anyone have a picture of one with the same set up
With the pinch weld mod, most 35x12.50s will fit on stock wheels (check the mfg. website to get the actual width of the tire, because some 12.50s are 12" wide and some are 13" wide so check to make sure the actual width isn't over 12.5"). Without the pinch weld mod, 33s or 34s (or the metric equivelents) will prob be all you'll be able to clear.nbryant855 said:i have a new 2008 crew cab se 2wd....i was planning on puttin a leveling kit on the truck...what size tires would i be able to clear?
