Brittani said:The back drivers side tire is rubbing. The lip under the fender is taking slices out of the tire. What should i do?
:nono: Dude, she lives in Arkansas, and I think she perfectly capable of handling it on her own. But hey if you want to drive that far to do a 30 second pry job, GO FOR IT! :thumbsup:bigb said:i would gladly come over and do that for you............... :head:
Homer J said:so, how much backspaing would you need to keep from running into this problem? i plan on lwoering my 2003 3/6 and running some 20's with 275/45/20 tires.
i was thinks about getting some Centerlines Rapids 20 X 8, but they only list them as having 5" of backspacing, so i'm not sure if they will work. i for sure what to run the 275/45/20 tires so i can keep close to the same overall diameter tire as stock so my speedo and mileage will be right.mood_indigo said:depends on the wheel width. on a 8.5 inch wheel, 6 inches is ideal. i have a 295/45 on my 20x10(rear) with no rubbing at all on unrolled fenders......7.5 inches of backspacing.

mood_indigo said:great looking wheel, but with that tire it will rub out back. you might want to try toyo's 255/45/20 and roll the fenders......should solve all your problems.

Chris99GMC said:I run a 265/35 on 22x9.5's with only 12mm backspacing. Which is only like a 5.72 offset on the 9.5" wheel.
That's what I figured. It most likely wont work on stock fenders when you compress the suspension cuz it'll hit the fender lips out back. But if you don't want to do a simple curl, then you need to look for a different offset.mood_indigo said:i, for the most part, give out wheel and tire combos that will tuck on a NON rolled fender as some of us do not have the option of rolling, i.e. sportside beds, and some people do not want to modify thier body just to get a set of wheels to work when there are so many other options out there. with a little bit of work any wheel and tire combo (within reason) will tuck, but i choose to offer the path of least resistance.
