Another 5100ís question

I canít find this anywhere. Seems like everyone is running 20Ē wheels or smaller tires with the 5100ís. I currently have a leveling spacer on my 13 2wd dc. I think itís 2.75 or 2.5Ēs. Tires are 275/70r18ís. I have a brand new set of st maxxx 295/70r18ís sitting in my shop. I have decided to replace my shocks. 80k miles on the truck and figure I would go with the 5100ís and get rid of the spacer. The wheels are aftermarket with a +15 18x8.5. Will I have any issues with fitting these tires?

Should be just fine on top setting. If you want to be safe order a pair of coach shims for an extra half inch. Good luck and keep us posted!

If you don't want rub, you'll need to trim. Might even need a BMC depending on how your alignment is done. If you had +35 to +60 offset you'd need minimal trimming and there'd be no chance of needing a BMC.

Unfortunately the lift doesn't help with rubbing, and going >2" causes other issues, like crappy caster and needing UCAs. If you put shims on top, you definitely need to extend your bumpstops.

2016 SR DC Long 4x4 5.7L. Intermittent wipers added (?!). MB TKO 18x9 +25. Hankook Dynapro ATM 325/65r18 (34.6x13) Future Offroad RV plans: Bed removed, homebuilt camper installed. Rear seat removed to make room for storage and bikes. King or ADS shocks with 700 lb springs, ~2" lift (may cheap out though). Rear leaves, maybe air bags. And more!

I think you'll have to trim, but I'm no expert. I'm running 5100s on top setting , CB shim per side, +1 offset with 305/65r18 (33.6 inches) tires and had to remove the front mud flaps and trim the front fender liner a bit. Nothing major or complicated

I just had Bilstein 5100s installed on all 4 corners and 1 shim each on the front. And I think Iíll have to do the bmc. Also had to trim front fender and removed front mud flaps.

20Ē wheel, 275/65/20 tire size.
