Quick tire size question

I just got offered a set of Remington Mud Brute 32x11.5x15 tires for $400. I cannot pass up this offer, but I need to know if these will fit my truck at stock height?

I have no suspension mods and I need new tires immediately.

Thanks!

but they'll probably rub,yes?

These are 31s on my truck right now:


Rear gap


Front gap


Do I really have the room to go an extra inch until I can do a lift? I need to get those tires that are mounted off immediately, I've got some cracks developing in my sidewalls and I'm concerned about a possibly blowout.

yeah they will fit but dont go wheeling with them untill you resolve your rear end.. just do drop shackles, will give you an extra 1.5-2 in the back.

Yeah I don't plan any wheeling right now. I live out in the boonies and in the middle of the snow belt. We get hit hard with tons of snow and squalls and the highway I live on is regularly closed and I need 4x4 just to get out of my driveway and street some days.

I'll either do shackles or bigger blocks in the back since I was planning a mild lift anyways.

Thanks guys. I still hate this place. Making me go from 31s to 32s in less than a week! Haha, ya [email protected]!

Get the shackles. Look at the link I posted. You don't have to have the shackles though.

I checked out the link like right after I posted that. Those 32s actually look really good with no lift, but I think I will end up doing a lift in the new year.

Thanks for your help again guys, greatly appreciated as always!

Yes they are. After going wheeling once with a couple of my buddies using my truck with stock tires and running boards, they converted me from a minitrucker to a full out 4x4 guy.

Plus, whats the point of having a lowered 2wd truck when you live in the boonies and the snowbelt?

I have a 02 FX4 as well, so I can run 33's with a torsion crank and some trimming? Will it wear out any parts running that bit of tires?

I actually decided against these tires. With my Cragars that are heavy as all hell, I think these tires will just be overkill.

So,I sucked it up and I am getting a set of new 31x10.5x15 Cooper Discoverer STT's instead. Yeah,I wussed out. But the trck sees the highway more than it sees the trail.

Still going to do shackles on it though, but thats about it for wheels/suspension.

Might also consider trading my Cragars for some lighter rims or stock 15" Mazda or Ranger rims.

Why not just by the set of wheels I have for sale. They are a lot lighter than the cragers.

The truck drives just fine right now with 31s and the cragars. the only time the weight is noticeable is when slowing down or going up a big hill. They're nice wheels,and I can live with them until I can afford something nicer.
