The only thing I could think that could solve your problem is getting a wheel spacer. You can get a 1/4" wheel spacer to bring the tries away from your truck a bit. That would allow for more room to turn the wheels. The only thing ot wont fix is when you hit a speed bump. When you say this are you talking about hitting the top?? I see guys that make custom wheel liners that bring them up more into the engine bay. I do not know if that is something you would want to do.

By the way that is a really sweet truck!!

im having a hard time but i think you u guys say offset do you mean that my rims are sticking out of my fenders? If so then no my rims are lined up with my fenders. A little help with what offset means would be great

Thanks for the compliments but getting wheel spacers would make my tires stick out and rub on the fenders all day when turning or going over speed bumps. DO you have a link or kno someone here who made those custom wheel liners??

I know a little about tires! :P

I'd guess you are rubbing more outside than inside and on compression bumps where going straight the tire hits the liners. You'd be better served to sell those tires and drop to a 305/40-22 (OEM SRT-10 size) , or maybe even a 285/40-22. This will reduce circumference and width a little creating more clearance. 30" tall is pretty much a maximum on a 4/6" unless you go real narrow like a 245, or 265 on a 30 series 26"....which isn't the case here.

Offset is how the wheels mounting surface relates to dead center of the wheel hoop. SO a 10" wide wheel is dead center at 5", so if its 25 mm offset, its 25mm or 1" off that dead center.

Hope this helps, and dood, that truck looks SOOO good!!
