wheel spacers....they go on before the rim and u use stock lugs, if u go bigger than half inch ( i think) then they will come w their own lugs

Don't forget to install an hydraulic suspension to make the front end jump at red lights.


And then, a few weeks later, we'll see another thread open:

if it is illegal to have tires sticking out then how are we allowed to put 35x12.5 tires?

With the proper lift and backspacing on the wheels. That's how.

It varies by state to state, but I know here that if the wheels stick out a certain amount (can't remember the exact amount), you are required to have fender flares.

You're allowed to install duallies too, as long as you respect the law (if your tires stick out, remove the damned spacers, or bolt on larger flares).

Legal:



Illegal:



Retarded:

Tires should stick out no more than about 1/2"-1" past the flare or fender. For me, the BFG side tread even with the fender is perfect, the sidwall pokes out just a fuzz and look gewd
