Factory wheels with Fabtech 3" ?

Hi guys,


For reference I have a stock 06 Sport, 2WD

I've read through all the spindle lift threads and can't find whether or not I could use OEM 15x7 wheels with 31's with the Fabtech 3" spindles. They have a warning saying that OEM wheels won't work with anything over stock tire size, but I don't know if that's a hard rule. Thanks for any advice.

Thanks for all the replies guys. The tires fitting the wheel isn't an issue more that the spindle lift might cause some interference, that's what I guess from their warning. My stock tire is 235-75-15.

Might have something to do with the stock rims' back spacing.
