I think the front wheels won't clear with out rubbing. There's a ton of room in the rear, especially if you don't have the wheel-well liners...

Damn, no rep points for guessing right? Haha!

I measured yesterday and saw about an inch of clearance on the front. Where does it rub at? Would rollin the fenders help there?

When turning. Going straight shouldn't be an issue. Rolling would help if it does indeed rub. Try it stock first, and see how it feels. Remember that the wheel has to move up and down too, so if it's close when it's just sitting, it'll probably hit when you hit a bump in the road...

They will clear in the front if you never drive it...you will have problems if you run 275/60r20...

Ok...here is the start of our day lowering Adam's truck. He nagged me all week to be up and ready at 7 in the am! I text him at 7:08am asking him where he was..???!!! He showed up a bit later and after some coffee and our initiation ceremony where we become one with the truck, this is how it started:

Being late at my house costs you. When he wasn't looking, we relocated his rim/tire to the curb with a friendly notice:

And in case it isn't readable it says:

Imagine the shock on his face when we took our first run to an auto store and he saw it at the curb! I should've had the camera ready THEN!
