I agree with Shane. In my opinion, a 11.50" tire is pushing it on a 7" wide wheel. 12.50" wide tire should not even be considered.

Brenda...have you thought about a 33x10.50? Same story goes for it as do 32x11.50's....torsion crank. And you'll have better treadwear compared to 11.50's on those 7" alcoas.
No Shane I haven't thought about a 33 because I thought I needed a bl or sl to fit them.

Nah... Maxxed T-bars and Shackles or an AAL. But that puts more stress on the front end.

Nope....to fit 33x10.50's on the stock alocas, you'd need a slight torsion crank and that's it. Max on stock truck is 32x11.50 or 33x10.50. Fenderwells are fairly large and accomidate a fairly big tire with just a torsion crank. Plus, with the 10.50's, you won't have accelerated tread wear in the middle of the tread where you may have that issue with the 11.50's on those alcoas.

Not really...33x10.50 and 32x11.50 weight about the same. Don't start talking stress on front end with me....I've got 35x12.50's on heavy steel 15x10 wheels....havn't had any front end wear problems with over 50k running 5's and 10's. 32's are toys compared to 35's.

my sister's boyfriend used to run the Mickey T baja claw's on his lifted 95 F150 in a 35". he LOVES them, right now he's running 35" bigfoot's and he blew out the sidewall in one of them so he tossed a bald baja claw on it and it looks good..

last time i went to his house he was trying to get me to buy his truck (this one) and i'd love to as its got a 302 4 speed manual locking front hubs but i know what its been through.. its been beat.

i had a set of 31's on my truck and no rubbing it was only about 1/2 inch from hitting the valance but it looked good...

didnt mean to hack the thread!!!

Will they fit with no rubbing? I really don't want to loose anymore of my turning radius. Hell, its bad enough and I do alot of "parking" lot parking.

If tires are going to rub, its going to cut out on my turning radius. That I do not want.
