Tire Gap...how much do YOU have?

I am at about 12" in the front and 12.5" in the rear. Thats the tire to fender measurement.

I have 5" of gap at the CLOSEST point at wheels pointed straight and 3" at full lock at the closest point.

What gap do you have? I'd love to hear from some of the flareside guys and anyone on 35's and up!!!

My favorite look was ^^^^^^^^^ Your truck with 33's that was sick as hell...

The gap was just right for me.

Before the Body lift, I just like the height, and the gap with that tire size on a ranger, and the color of his truck is kick **** too!

Wow, so you have the same as I do, but your truck is on 35's...thats cool!

Kevin has 11 in the front and 12" in the rear IIRC. He's on 35's. His superlift gave him more than my spindles did, I think.

I don't have any. I've lowered the truck down to where it contacts the tires because it helps keep the tread from packing up with mud. Kind of an automatic scraper...

my limiting factor for going to 36 or 37's was the fender flares and the rubbing action that would incur......

10 inches in the back and 11 inches in the front. 4 inches at the closest point with the wheels straight. Thats on 35s. My back would be 12 inches but I took the shackles out. I think my t-bars have started sagging a bit since I cranked them 2 years ago.
