I know you can run those tires, well, from what Ive heard on this site. My concern is that people run those wheels on the road and thats fine, but off road Im scared that the wheel will mash the wheel well. I don't see how they couldn't really, because your suspensions upward travel isn't effected by the lift. So there is still a possibility that the wheel could damage the wells.

Thanks for the reply. you don't have any problems with 31's doing this?

Dude, slap some 31"s on there. I just got it done last wednesday and it looks sweet! No rub or anything, in fact depending on the tire you could probably even get someone to test a set of 32". I will try and get some pics posted of my truck tomorrow when I can get some.

Is there much of a difference if you stick a set of 31" tires on a 2WD as opposed to a 4WD?

I just put 31x10.5x15 Pro Comp X-Terrains on my 2001 4WD QC with AE 589 rims (15x8) and had to trim the hell out of the plastic bumper valence in order to keep them from rubbing up front.

The problem with the AE 589 rim is that it has 2" less offset than the stock rims, which really pushes the tire out more. They look good, but there is still just a tad of rubbing when I'm at full turn to the left...time to get out the hack saw...

Asta la Pasta!

Ive heard the 4x4 fits bigger tires with less problems, but I don't know from experience. I would think they can take the height, but I don't think the spindle is out further than on a 2WD which would mean wide tires wont cope much better than the 2WD. Maybe they do, Im not sure. Anyway. I got my 30" yesterday with no lift and don't have any rubbing, so Im pretty happy about that. Still gonna get the 2" lift though. I just want the shocks really, but it would be nice to sit just a tad higher.
