Several guys are running the -44 offsets with a 12.5" wheel and they just scrub the bumper at full lock. There is the -12 offset which is still 1" further out compared to stock. Also, keep in mind that depending on where you are you may be legally required to cover the tire with a fender flare.

I don't think it will work with just a 3" bodylift. For wide stance like that, would probably need a 6" suspension lift to clear for rubbing. Most trucks I have seen with that wide of a stance have had 6" lifts.

As Curtis said, you have to watch out for your laws about what is legal. I think in my province tires can't be 3" past the body, so flares are needed for anything over 3" past. Mine are about 2" with 12.50 tires on -12 offset.

That's a new idea! I may have to give that a try. Thanks for your help! If worst comes to worst, I may need to throw on a leveling kit with my body lift to squeeze them in. But I'll def have to try the cardboard tube idea. Thanks!!

I didn't consider the 12 offset either. That's always a possibility. I think I'm going to do a bit more researching on them. I'll keep you guys posted on whatever mods I go with. Thanks for your help!

Wonder if I would have the clearance now if I went with -12 or -24 offset w/ just the 3 in body lift? How did yours work out with the -12? Did you have any spacers on the front or fit them with ease?
