Question Can I fit Raptor Rims and Tires????

Hey guys,
I just got an entire set of rims and tires of my friends new F150 Raptor. I was wondering how i could get these to fit on my truck? I currently have an 04 xl 2.3 stick. It has 3" coil spacers and the 2" shackle lift. What to i need to do to run these rims and tires? Body lift or spindle lift? I will regear to 4.56 for sure and run 2.5 inch spacers so that the bolt pattern works.

Thanks guys!

id regear to 5.13s if you have a 4 banger. theres no way youre gonna run 35s with 4.56 and a 2.3. you can run them with a spindle lift and a body lift. leave the coil spacers in for added lift.

In simple terms....NO. The wheels will not fit as they are a different bolt pattern and you would need to get an adapter.

you would have to get an adapter for sure and double lift to fit the stock 35s. I have an F150, just send them my way please

The 2.5" spacers will be the bolt pattern adapters. Do i need to double lift it or just do a spindle lift since the spacers will push the tire out? Im just wondering if the spindles and 2.5" wheels spacers will prevent the rubbing?

----------

sorry....just to clarify im planning to have 3" coil spacers and 3" lift spindles up front. Ill also have 2" lift shackles and an add a leaf in the back. For the wheels ill have 2.5" wheel adapters to make up for the lug difference. Do i still need a body lift too? and will my performance suffer a lot with the 4.56 gears.

Sorry guys but im new to all of this. Thanks for the help.

this, I cant imagine a 2.3 running those tires without 5.13.

yeah if they are the stock 35" BFGs, your little 2.3 is not going to like it and your transmission will fail shortly. sell them and get some new aftermarkets and 31s

5.13 gears at least. and yes you will need a body lift on top of your spindles and coil spacers.

regear to 5.71's

I know some one with this set up and runs 35's use to have 36's but just got has 35's. But he has the 2.5L
