Default Rims/Tire Question...

Ok everyone i have decided to go with this setup...first:

The truck when im done will have:

a 2 in. body lift
2.25in lift shackels
2 in. ruff country shocks
add a leaf ( 1 on each side )
and a 1 in torsion key lift

now the wheels i have are 15x7 with a back spacing of 4
im gonna buy wheel adapter/spacers ( 1.25 in in front/2 in. in rear ) i need the adapters because the bolt pattern is 5x4.5 on the new rim. with the adapter/spacers...will this be a big problem or will just the minor trimming need to be done to make everything work. the tires i want are the bfg mud terrain...i know i want 33s but which would be better 33x1150x15 or 33x1250x15? what does everyone reccomend for this to work out properly? thanx in advance

ps..im not really taking it off roading, my truck just goes down alot of dirt roads, and deer camp.

Wow... You won't have much, if any problems in the back, but you will be sticking each wheel 4" further out...

In the front, you are moving things a total of 3.25" out which would be problematic with much smaller tires... Using 33's, I'm afraid you will have to really bash in your firewall to get it out of the way. The reduction in the backspacing is making things MUCH worse.

what would u reccomend for the front then? 2 in spacer/adapters all around? i was trying to go with a smaller sized adapter to try to even out the front and back wheels...as it looks like the back wheels are tucked in a little more then the front.

I wouldn't run any spacers... If I were you, I would find another set of rims... 3.25" is a LOT to move a tire out!

On a side note, please try not to post consecutively unless you have waited atleast 24 hours... If you have anything further to add to your post within a 24hr window, please use the edit function to include it.
