I have 2 questions,
The first is striaight forward...
1.) What should a nice set of the wheels pictured below sell for, with hub caps? (stock 2014, 18" wheels)
What is the largest 18" tire I can run on a stock truck, NO LIFT, NO level, with these rims. I know guys run LT285/75/R17's on stock rims without an issue. ( I am still running stock LT265/70 r17's.)
I would like to run the LT285/70 R18, only slightly shorter than the LT285/75 R17, and same width. But I am not sure the 18's are going to clear the control arms at full lock with the offset difference from my rims, 43mm to the 56mm (18" rims). Both 8" wide.
Looking at the calculator in the link below, assuming height and width are exact same, (I know they will be slightly different) the 18's will be 14 mm closer to the control arms... is their clearance for this?
Just want to see if other people are getting away with this combo on the 3rd gens. I have been looking at "The Official Wheel/tire/backspace/offset Fitment Thread" But all I found was that the 1" taller LT285/75/18's rub on 3rd gen control arms. Hoping the 1" shorter tires would give me the clearance needed.
Anyone know if the LT285/70R18 will clear on the truck in my signature, with the 18" wheels I am looking at purchasing?
