How wide are your rims? Camodown does have the 34x10.5's and it doesn't look bad at all.

I don't know of a company that runs that size tire in a 15. If you had 16" wheels then you could get a 285/75/16 which is a 33/11.5 or there are a few tires like bfg all terrain and the nitto all terrain that have 295/75/16 which is like a 34/11.5 i think.

I don't like the idea of running a 10.5" tire on a 10" wheel but whatever floats your boat.

Here is 295/75/16's

You would have to trim and I think they would rub on a stock front bumper

I've never thrown a flare but it hits it every time I get in this situation, remember I've trimmed the back passenger side

he uses tin snips

i use an angle grinder.. lol


if you get bigger tires, and wheel.. and end up stuffing the pass. back tire its a pretty good bet you have to trim the inside of the bed a little or you will rip chunks out of your tire.

it did it to my 33s and did a little on my 35s



forrrrr the origional question.. go big or go home

yeah I have a BL and shackles would probably help out, maybe enough to clear.

I would just worry about the front bumper not clearing. I would get a bodylift before you get 34's though.

no, just kept using the tin snips until it didn't rub anymore. It is behind the flare so you can't see anything. I did try to keep it nice looking though.


and it is because the passenger side moves forward when it flexes and the driver side moves back so it clears

but why?
both shackles are in the back so it should move back


its probably the stupid shock, i need to do something about those.

I think it is the way the shocks are mounted but I'm no expert.

just get some traction bars
