Can I run 32x11.5's w/o lift temporarily

Can I run 32x11.5 BFG MT's w/o a lift temporarily on the street until I get a 2 inch BB or a Rusty's lift kit? What size rim is the best for the 32x11.5's? Looking at an inexpensive wheel.

Yes you can. I ran the same tire (on black steelies) wth no lift and never rubbed once on the street...including railroad tracks and speedbumps Even did ok in the flat mud too.

go with 15x8...4" or 3.75" backspacing

what mrbigjeep said.. 32s will only take away half an inch of clearance more than the 31s.. so you should be fine.. if anything add some longer bumpstops when you put your tires on and you'd be fine.. how long do you plan on waiting on the lift?

also.. keep 15'' rims unless you plan on one day going over a 36'' tire or something.. tires are a lot cheaper for 15'' rims vs larger sizes.. a 3.75 backspacing would stick the tires out a tad.. but it'd look great
