Alcoa on 93-97 trucks? clearness problems???

ANYBODY out there know of ANYONE running stock level II Alcoa on a 93-97 2wd trucks???

I have a sneeky feeling that with the center cap on it will not clear the spindle at all... I am not 100% sure. but thought i would throw that question out there

if no one knows hey BILLY can i barrow a wheel man lol...



they look like this for you people that always needs pictures



i am trying to get more options for when i need new tires here soon. cause if i could run these with there stock 4.5" BS i could probly clear 32x11.5x15 on my truck and that would be so much nicer then my STUPID 16" wheels...

the center cap WILL NOT fit over the dust cap on the front hub but they still look good without the ford center caps

what about reuseing the ford center caps you allready have zach?
i think it would look ok.
or maybe the newer center caps like the 2001 and up, im not sure of the years they came on.

hell no bill sell something lol....



btw 265x75x16 are 31.7x10.6x16 on a 7.5" wide wheels and

32x11.5x15 are 31.7x11.4x15 on a 8" wheel. so having only .9" wider that means .4" wider in each site and the wheels have .5" more sucked in. math wise it will fit with a .1" less then what i have now on each site. also took a tape measure and was doing all these measurements inside the fender. looks like it will be fine..only one way to tell.
