Those are H2 wheels which are like a stock offset and backspace. Not sure exactly what it is, and trust me it wasnt like i just dropped it and they didnt rub. Went through a few blades on the ol sawzall.

Nice, different look.

The H2 wheels have more backspacing than stock, which is needed for the extra width of the wheel, going from 6.5 to 8.5 wide. It is approx 5.5" BS. This keeps the wheel from sticking out too much. If the offset were less, there would be more rubbing issues.

So now my question:

I have 315's (34.5") on them, and I rub the sway bar. How are you keeping from touching the sway bar, lock to lock? They must be narrower than the 315's.

That is the key to running big tires with a smaller or no lift. Keep the tires tucked in! 37's on a 4" lift here (ford I know but) and most rub hard with a 6"...

I am running 315/70/17's and have no problems with them rubbing the UCA or anything. Its all wheel dependent.

Also take into consideration the number 315 means nothing without its counterparts for tire size. Are you on an H2 wheel as well?
