I have 3" level kit front, 350 blocks in rear, and 35s on stock wheels...so they are not that wide (375/75/16)
Tires are still nice and crispy still so I'm not ready to do a wheel and tire combo yet..I'm also flipping back and forth about lifting 6"...for now I'm thinking of some 1.5" or 2" wheel spacers to slightly change the look..anyone have any pics of spaced put wheels or somehting similar?
This is how it sits now..would also like to do 08 mirrors, tailgate and bumper.
If you want to research spacers look up Hub-Centric Spacers. They would be the best on something this heavy, which I still would not recommend. The other is lug-centric which are cheaper but I would not try them.
I was running 2" hub centric spacers on my 08 F350 for the front end to make the 19.5 even with my F450 flares, but the studs keep busting and they were ford oem studs on the steel spacer. I spent $600 on the spacers and another $320 on studs. Then I said forget it im not running no damn spacers no more after my tire almost flew off on the freeway, it was held on by one stud and nut. I wouldn't run spacers well maybe its because the F350 so dang heavy I can see them maybe working on a F250. If not my best bet would be to go for the wider rim and off set to be safe. Then again that's just me do what ever you think is right its your truck :)
yah, i wouldnt run spacers. Im not sure what kind of rims you like, but you can get the M/T classic II style made by procomp for around $600 brand new shipped. plus look around on your local craigslist, there are always 8 on 170 rims on there around my area. Might luck out. even if you find a set you like with tires on it you can always pull those off and sell them.
On a side note, how do you like those duratracs? Im thinking of getting a set sometime soon.
