Im suprised you dont rub in the front. Im running 235/75R15s and mine rubs slightly around some turns. I have the 2" lowering springs though as well, so that may be why. Ill post pics when this ice is melted around here.

Ive got a bit of room to go in order to rub any suspension.
Now....... I have in the past accidentally hit a pretty big chuck hole and heard the tire hit the chrome trim on the fender lip.
So I would imagine if I hit a good sized whole while turning and creating body roll it would probably rub.

I've tried working the wheel back and forth at a descent speed and cannot get it to rub in that way.

I really liked the way it looks at least form the angles you showed before but how does it look from a side view? Could you post a side view of your truck?
Im running 235/75r15 and im kind of concerned about the 295/50 leaving to much "free space" around the fenders.
Cheers

This is the only one I have at the moment. When I get home at some point this week I'll get some good ones for you.

You can get 3.5 - 4 fingers between the rear tire and fender trim.
For the front, you can get 2.5 fingers between.
I can get an axact measurement if you'd like.
I haven't taken a measurement since the suspension has settled.

I have 275 55R 17s on mine and I can only get 3 or fingers in the back wheel wells. I will be switching to some wide 15s in the spring.


I love this guys setup.

uhnmm.. nah, dont need an exact measurement... i was just curious about the clearance i would probably have on mine.

im from Brazil and just bought a 95 2wd Single Cab Flareside, those trucks werent sold on the market here, maybe 3 or 4 were imported by independent sellers. Mine was imported by an American Airlines Pilot who brought his own truck from US...

For now i just finished working on the brakes (new drums, calipers, axle...) and im starting to think about suspension, wheels and tires. As far as i know, the suspension is still the original one (but i think it might have been lowered a bit), i dont want to change my wheels/tires setup and have a huge clearance on the wheels wells. Im also thinking about installing an airbag suspension on it.

If your talking about mine the wheel and tire info is post #325 above as well as drop kit is the DJM 3-5 kit with 1" lift brackets. Thank you. Ive done a lot of work. When I first got it, it was all grandpa'd out.

My wife wouldnt be caught dead in it and said I looked like the neighborhood pedifile.






Interior and exterior needs to be cleaned and detailed but here's some more pics. I'll see if I can pull it out of the garage in the daylight tomorrow to get some better ones.
