Default 31" or 32" tires on my 2wd???

Hey guys, Just added the 2" suspension lift to the list. I want to run 32/11.5/15 tires on my 15 X 7 stock wheels. Since the weather here stinks I will not be able to trim fenders until spring. With 4" of total lift do you think I will have problems with rubbing? Remember this is a 2wd and I believe the wheels have 4.5" backspacing. Thanks....

I think you'd still run into rubbing issues with that big a tire. especially at full lock

this is where alot of people get confused. the 2WD have a different back spacing-but the wheels still sit @ the same distance in relation to the body.

the issue with back spacing lies in using aftermarket wheels, that don't have the correct back spacing for the truck (think FWD off-set for the 4x4's).

if you have 4" of lift the 31's may clear ok, but you never know what's gonna happen when you go into a driveway quickly with your wheels turned.

I found some like new 265/75/15 Goodyear Wrangler AT's on craigslist and just got them put on today. No rubbing and a nice quiet ride. Can't beat the price for $300 installed!!!
