Thinking of.....

I'm thinking of upgrading the size of my tires in the next couple of months. I am currently running the stock 30X9.5 on the stock rim. I would like to go with 32's along with keeping the stock rims.

I would of course go with all 5 new tires so would that be an issue with the tire carrier in the back and the cyclopse light?

I really do not want to raise the rig at all at this time. Just something with a tire that I can use for my everyday commute to work and back.

Thanks

those look like 31's or 32's obviously on stock suspension. You might have to adjust the steering stops, especially with 32's, so you wont rub at full turn. You wont get much flex out of it but as long as you stick to mud or mild off roading you'll be fine.

You can run 31's without spacers but you do need to adjust the stops. Look on the bottom of the spindle, you'll see a bolt sticking out toward the inside that doesn't looks like it's holding anything. Romeve them and add a washer or two.

Although i'm late to the show...
just get a minor (1") bl or a 1-2" BB for those 32s and you'll have the clearance needed.
