Re: fiting 32\'s

On your truck you can fit 285/75R16's on the stock rims or on aftermarket 16x7 rims with the stock backspacking. If you get a wider rim or one with less backspacing, they will rub on the back of the bumper and the top of the fender. 285/75R16 is about 33x11.25R16. Looks really nice, fills up the fenders like the factory should have. 32's will rub, unless you REALLY crank your torsions, and you already said you don't want to do that. So I'd say get the 285's and go have fun! Oh yeah, you may need to have the torsions tweaked up a little, but not more than an inch, depends on how your torsions have settled since the factory. Anything below an inch-inch and a half won't cause any problems for you and you should be safe. Hope this helps.

Re: fiting 32\'s

well the only wheel spacers i know of are the ones that make your rims stick out farther and thats NOT what you want. no, 32s wont fit on 15x8s because they stick out more than the 16x7 stock rims. 285s will fit on STOCK RIMS OR SAME SIZE RIMS WITH SAME BACKSPACING. if you want 32s on 15x8 you would prob need a 2" body lift

Re: fiting 32\'s

I used to run 15x8 rims with, I believe, 3 3/4" backspacing and BFG 32"-11.5"-15" ATs. They fit no problem. I didn't have to crank the torsion bars either. The only time they rubbed was when I was wheelin' hard they would rub on the underside of my front fender flares

Re: fiting 32\'s

285's fit no problem and so do 305/70R16's. I had the 285's on my old style 99 and the 305's on my 92 Sport 4x4. Didn't touch the t bars on either on.


Go with the 285 BFG MT's. They will make your truck look bad assed even without the lift.

Good luck....Ryan
