My new rims and tires finally showed up
Fuel pump 20x10
Nitro trail grapplers 35x12.5

Slight rub on the fender wall at the back

Tires stick about as much as the stocks did with 1.5 inch spacers with stock fender flares, so I'm happy with it.
They kind of feel like a rumble strip tho for the first 10 km/h

What is the offset on your wheels. I have 2 inch spacers with 0 offset. No rub.

Sorry forget to mention. Link mod about 2 inches lift in every mode.

Planning on cutting that piece out and if there is nothing behind it in going to fiberglass over it flat, it just barely touches. If the tires had 75% tread life it would be fine.

They're -24
Didn't you say somewhere you had 34 inch tires or are they 35s?
If I had 34.5 it would be perfect, they just rub a little but it's loud

Also, cutting the fender liner and replacing it flat wont work, there's metal behind it. I ended up drilling a small hole in the bottom and tying it back with string till I get some zip ties. Seems to have worked

Diy solutions like these are why I love forums. Now people will have a cheap fix if their tires are slightly rubbing up against the fender wall.

New adjustable links.
Ya I saw those, thinking of doing that just so I can tweak my front a bit. Rear I actually left stock

If I were to do it over, I would either go with 35 inch tires with 9 inch wide rim, for less swing, or 10 inch rim with 34.5 inch tire or what ever the canadian size is

how would a 20" rim fitted w/ a 33" tire would have worked?
Without any issue at all

I literally just touch the fenders with about 1 cm of tread, so if i went and did some burnouts for 20 minutes then rotated my tires i'm sure it would be perfect :D

Always loved how those wheels look on RAM trucks, even some Fords but they seem to look perfect on RAM's, almost like they were made for RAM's design.

I believe LEBAR is running this with 2 inch spacers, perhaps you can ask him what it was like without the spacers. 1 inch less on each side of the tire is a big difference, and mine barely rub. I would say you'd be fine

love the way your truck looks! What fender flares are those and where did you get them?
They are roughcountry and I ordered from them or amazon, I think straight from them. Same quality as bushwacker but half the price.Thanks!

@Pitajr Did you order them "unpainted", or are they "black"?

Thanks!

They are just matte black plastic, not painted. They have since faded to purple meanwhile my dads 4 year old bushwackers are still black @MIARebel
