Yep, 32X11.50X15's. I went with the HD rear springs too anticipating the same, but never did go with the swing out tire carrier, so the rear sat a bit high as a result, even with the hard top on. I ended up removing the 10mm spacer for the rear springs that came with the kit to level it out a bit.

Check out Mickey Thompson's website. Go to the tire specifications. That shows some good comparisons of metric vs. std tire profiles.

For 33's you may need to add some bumpstop extensions so as not to rub at full stuff. A wheel with a 4" BS or so helps as well. I just switched over to 32's this go around and needed to add 3/4" bumps in the front. Here's my heep with the latest combo...

Awesome, thanks for the welcome! Always good to meet a fellow Raider Hater! I am hoping to have her a little more ready to explore more of CO next year and beyond. So much that is available hard to nail down exactly what to go with... It's already fun and I haven't done anything yet

Awesome thanks for the insight. I was born and raised in Denver but transplanted to Aurora about 2 years ago. Love your signature!

Lift/Tire Questions From A Newbie...

I have been reading a ton on the site about different lift/tire combos and I had a few questions about my potential configurations...

First If I do the 2.5" OME Lift with an additional 1" Body Lift would I be able to run 33" tires without rubbing or any other issues?

Or would it be better to run 31" with the above setup?

I'd like to maximize my off-road capabilities without going to a lift where I'll have to spend extra $$ on driveline modifications. I am new to this so I don't mind starting small and working my way up to the big leagues.

Thanks in advance for sharing your expertise with a new guy!
