your 15x10's problems or not?

simple answer lets not draw this one out please but who here can honestly say that by mounting 15x10's with somewhere between a 32-35" tire has had problems with suspension / drive components.

and i ask this really not to start a huge boring thread like the rest but to see how many people have gone with 10 wide no issues and HOW long have you had em on? THanks guys!

hmm i totally like the wide tire look and the handling can't be a downside. its cool that that many people have gone 10 cause from what i read sooo many people made it sound soo bad and like it was a big prob. so im gonna ask even tho i KNOW this has come up before and ive read tons of these posts but since im not lifting too soon yet if i go 15 x 10 rather than 8 will i rub with the 32x12.5?? i deff am cranking some bar atleast an inch. suggestions?

you are more than likly gonna rub.im like an inch from rubbing with a 3 inch body lift and lift from cranking the t-bars, your only chance is if you crank them bars for all they got even then ur prolly gonna rub.

yeah 15x10s will deff rub, 15x8s rubbed a little on my valance with 33s with no lift .. and just a 1 inch tbar crank ....

id say get a 3 inch body along with ur rims and tires, and or wait and buy them when u can and install when you can unless you wanna cut to make things fit

On both man, here is a pic with on lift and 15x10 on 33x12.5r15. I could only turn about 1/4 of the way if that and it took forever to get home. The lift went on the next day.
