2001 Chevrolet Silverado Z71 Ext Cab LS
Hey everybody, i'm kinda new to the forums. Just purchased some items for my off road rig new Gears, Posi, Fabtech 6" susp., 3" body and some other toys as well.
Let me get to the point though
I just purchased wheels and I dont know if they are going to work with the tires I want. Probably should looked more into it.
My new wheels are:
Eagle Alloy Series 058 16x10 5 1/2 backspacing and -24 offset
Fabtech reccommends 4 5/8back spacing on their lift.
I'd like to run 36x13.50R16 Super Swamper IROKS with them for the trails. Maybe even the 37x14R16 IROKS will I have any horrible rubbing when turning.
anyway should I be looking for new wheels or am I good to go and just need tires?
I would guess that they won't work. Usually, lift kits don't work with stock wheels, and if you have 5.5" backspacing... You basically have the stock offset. The only way to tell is to test-fit them, but you should probably take them back and get wheels with 4.5" bs or less.
If i were you id buy fiberglass over fenders and solve the problem so you dont have to change anything except the fenders and save yourself the work of trimming stock ones and or buying or exchanging tires.
