Default Tires and Add a leaf capacities

When stuffing my tires w 32s with stock suspension (as noted in the sticky) how much WEIGHT will it take in the bed before i start having issues with the base touching the wheel while driving??

and with 31s?

with a 500 pound aal? (yes i understand the increase in lbs of the aal)
with a 2000 pound aal?

----------

i dont think you have to worry much. how much wieght do you plan on putting in the bed.. i think you would max payload before that problem happened. but i did put 700 pounds of grass(not the stuff you smoke lol) in the bed of my truck on 31 inch tires and no aal and had no rubbing issues(on stock wheels)

well the AAL i have doesnt its just all for looks... if your looking to increase payload look for helper springs or just change out the leaf pack for a stronger pack.. but i dont think you will run into problems with rubbing with tires but if you got different rims that stick out farther then maybe you might run into something.. best thing to do is just pull a trailer.. its safer that way
