Yes, but how wide of a tire are you going with?

You'll be fine, but go with some 285's at least...

You'll have lots of clearance.

Yes, I have 32's with 5.5" of lift and wish that I had a larger tire. I assume that you are going with 5" of total lift, so 32's would be fine. Your stock wheels will work with the 285's which are about 32's.

I believe they are Eagle Alloys, but basically the same design as the MT's. They probably have a 3.75 backspace or so. Here's his cardomain, http://www.cardomain.com/ride/2247686
