38x15.50x20s with a 4.5 icon?

Will they fit? My wheel isn't centered in the back but I think it'll be ok, what about the fronts. Obviously going to need new rims, but the real question. They fit or not?

I would think it would rub EVERYTING without fender mods. Normally the biggest tire for a 4.5" lift is a 37-13.5 with the correct wheel. But I have also thought about a TOYO 38-13.5 tire, but with fiberglass fenders on a 4.5 lift. I just think the 15.5s are a bit wide. But fender mods may be the key.

I know that Seabee runs a 38x15.50 but thats with a 6" lift. I also know that a 4.5 Icon runs just alil more than an actually 4.5, it's a big 4.5 if you will...I think I might have to center the back wheel if I want it to work tho

Also, if they can fit in the rears I would think all you may need to do is trim the front bumper alil..again with the right wheel, but I could be wrong

Wont work, if you want a 15.50 do 36's or do a 12" or 14" wide wheel and a 13.50. It was tight to do 38's on a 6" and I'm down sizing on my next set.

i found a set of XD's with 36x15.50's that I really wanted to pick up but when I went to look at them the rims were pitted all up and the tires were like 30% i wasn't to happy.... I think 36's is the way to go

You can still find them in 20" sizes but thats it better hurry up Matt and I talked to a Mickey thompson rep at truckfest a couple of weekends ago and he said they stopped making alot of the specialty sizes (15.50) because of lack of sales and there going to go over there inventory and come back out with only certain sizes in the 15.50 width instead of the vast selection of 15.50 sizes they did have.

there also 12.50's I think a 14.50 or 15.50 would look ******... Ideally i'd find a set of those Mickey thompson classic II's and some 36x15.50's cheap somewhere but I guess now BOTH of those are going outa production
