Highest offset wheel for lift?

Well I really know nothing about lifts or the sort so here goes. I was curious what the highest offset wheel I could run with a spindle lift? I got to looking around and saw TONKA TOY's truck and I think its just amazing looking show style truck. I was curious if I got a spindle lift would I still be able to use my current wheels? (Mustang Bullitt's with a 26 mm offset, I think). Thanks for your time in reading this.

Nope, it would rub like a ****..your rims have like a 5.95" backspacing, thier made for a stang, just get the adapters like i have, and you would be ok..

And run the pro-comp spindles... So you have alittle more clearance in the front, as opposed to the fabtec spindle..

Alright thanks a ton for the reply Leo. Where would a find these adapters at and how much do they run? Is there much difference in the spindles other than one has a little more clearence? Thanks again...



I'm really trying to find a place for my truck. I wanted bags but honestly, it just doesnt appeal to me much for a daily driver. Where I drive the roads are just to rough to worry about how low I am to the ground.

yes, 2" pulled me out to the fender, and 2" from the 5.95 is like 3.95, so you running enough width for the wheel, 3.95... nice and not not hurting the ball joints,like thier doing now.
