For the overall width of the tire 14.5" is the absolute max with 4.5" bs. A guy running 37x13.50 mud graps are 14.3" wide and is DARN close to rubbing on the knucke!

What tire you looking at??

Correct me if I'm wrong but it looks like you're running the extreme mud terrain!? With you're 6" lift and adjustable Bilsteisn (what setting you at) you shouldnt have any issues what so ever. You can run a tire up to 14.5" "actual width". I cant find the specs on the pro comp, but I'm guessing you have a 5" backspacing on the wheels if you have issues...

The pro comp lift tells you the max an min offset, at first i had fuel gauge wheels that were in the middle of the two number srry i can't tell you what the offset was I'm not so good with wheels, but with a 12.5 nitto they almost rubbed the knuckle, but i ended up swapping them out for xd wheels the were 1 inch more of an offset an not theres a hell of a lot more room for width.

I can tell you off the top of my head that pc calls for 4.5"-5" backspacing. Thats why i was guessing you had 5". To clear anything somewhat wide, 4.5" bs is the only way to go!

yep wheel back spacing is my problem.no idea what the spacing is as they were on the truck when I bought it. Also not sure on the setting for the front but it is def. not a height issue and the truck sets almost exactly level. I need new wheels but I hate to spend the money. They are pro comp wheels also.
