I have a 7in lift..Here in a week or 2 i will be ordering new wheels and tires..I like 38x15x16 baja claw and 38x14x16 mud grapplers. the wheels would be 16x10 AE type 058's with 4.5" back spacing.. i was wondering if i can clear either one without rubbing and how far would the stick out of the wheel well..any thoughts would be great...before i order something that wont work..

The wheels will stick out a good chunk since of the negative offset and wide tire. I would say they will rub with 7"s of lift on a 2nd gen.

i might get 37in grapplers also..im just worried about how far out the claws will stick..in pa you can get away with 3 inches or so. my 12.5's on stock wheels with 1.5in spacer stick about 1.5in inches..Do you think i could swing the 38's..i see on cardomain that 1500's with 8 inches of lift can fit 38's..

try the 385/70/16 mud grap. its basically a 37.5. about 15" wide or so? here in oregon, it cant stick out at all, but not like thats guna stop me from runnin some fat meats under there. i think tomorow i might order the 385/70s. just under $1700 installed(tires+freight from cali+some BS import tax+install) ya, ive seen rigs w/ like 6.5, 7" lift clearin 38s, my buddy has a skyjacker 7 w/ 38 toyos, looks good to.
