1" BL w/ 31" tires pic request

Post any pics you might have, I'm debating about putting that one I have on but am uncertain about the gap. I didnt search, I figured it was time for a new thread if there hadn't been one since the crash.

I'm pretty sure. Vista4.0 had just a 1" so if anyone talks to him off the site please let him know. Like the title says too, I'm keeping my current wheel tire combo since I'm still happy with them.

Thanks Chris. How did you adjust the front bumper? I'm not feeling how high the rear end wheel gap is and the lack of width from a stock rim. My own preference would be a slightly offset rim for a wider stance. I have a couple spacers and I could throw them on. At least the rear would be wider but the front wouldn't.

It's a big help with our trucks being so close in appearance.

some front bumpers have room to adjust up. its all a matter of looking at yours.
If not, brackets can be made.

i think you should go for it. It'll give you a bit more space in the wheel well to prevent any rubbing or bending. plus if you ever did get the itch to put a slightly bigger tire on there, you'll be able to fit it.

Yea, They make like 315/75 or something for 16" wheels, (Which is like 32.8/11)

Plus, I think in general 33x12.5R15 are cheaper than like a 315/75R16 tire.

Bumper brackets are super easy to make. Its only 4 holes per bracket and can be adjusted virtually anyway possible to make the bumper look how you want it to.
I'm sure you could even make it stick out a bit farther so you don't have to trim your valence either.

Thanks mike, Alex I'm not getting 33's. I just realized he has 33's in that pic. His sig says 31's and the specs are what I was looking for. I will see what the truck looks like with coils and deavers then go from there. If I go up I wanna go out also as its a stance preference.

I don't know if you can get any wider unless you can go taller. i don't know off the top of my head what 75 is. I want to say like 11 and change.

unless you run spacers.

I get what your saying. you've told me your reasoning before. I just don't know if they make a tire that's as wide as you like, but not as tall. (well, they make them, but not off road tires)

ya you cant really go wider than what you have already without up going up in size. 265/75s are only like a 10.50 tire. Some different wheels would help with the stance some. With my bumper i just reemed out the holes on the frame horns a little to eat up some of the space.

You guys misread, I said I'd need new rims. I'm happy with with 31's it's the rim offset I'm not. I can change my rim and offset and keep the 31's while I lift it an inch. Thus out and up.

Chris got it.
