Anyone know how to obtain the "wide stance"? Right now my tires come just past my fender wells. Do I just need to get a wider rim? What about offset? I run 275/60/20 Cooper Zeons on stock rims w/ a 3 in PA body lift. Any help is appreciated!

I've looked into wheel spacers, and I'm kind of sittin on the fence with those. I don't think paying $300 for two more inches of space is going to get me very far.

Thanks for your help! What is the deal with the clearance? The tires and rim height would be the same right?

That's a new idea! I may have to give that a try. Thanks for your help! If worst comes to worst, I may need to throw on a leveling kit with my body lift to squeeze them in. But I'll def have to try the cardboard tube idea. Thanks!!

I didn't consider the 12 offset either. That's always a possibility. I think I'm going to do a bit more researching on them. I'll keep you guys posted on whatever mods I go with. Thanks for your help!

I don't think it will work with just a 3" bodylift. For wide stance like that, would probably need a 6" suspension lift to clear for rubbing. Most trucks I have seen with that wide of a stance have had 6" lifts.

As Curtis said, you have to watch out for your laws about what is legal. I think in my province tires can't be 3" past the body, so flares are needed for anything over 3" past. Mine are about 2" with 12.50 tires on -12 offset.

Wonder if I would have the clearance now if I went with -12 or -24 offset w/ just the 3 in body lift? How did yours work out with the -12? Did you have any spacers on the front or fit them with ease?
