Default New wheels and tires ordered!

First off, I'm honestly surprised how quiet this section is!

So when I bought my new to me 04 LLY, it came with factory size Toyo Open Country H/T tires. Not sure if these are original tires or not, but I had one have a belt separate and cause one heck of a vibration and I picked up a screw in another.

So today I ordered 18x9 Ultra Machine whees in all black and 265/70-18 Cooper AT3 tires.

Im hoping these fit with no issues since they are only 1" wider and 1" closer on either side of the tire.

It looks like it could be close to the front bumper when turning the wheel, but the inner fender will have plenty of room for sure. Guess I'll find out for sure next week haha.

Well... For anyone who actually cares about info on what does and doesn't work... This combo I ordered doesnt work on a factory height '04 2500HD. 18x9 +12mm wheels with 265/70-18 tires.

Aside from the tires clipping the lower valance, they rub on the inner fender as well. It's not terrible by any means, but trimming along will not fix this issue.

Looks like I'll be ordering a leveling kit and praying that moves things up enough in the front to avoid any trimming of the lower valance and rubbing the inner fender.

Do your research. Idk how many times people need to be told leveling kits are a bad bad idea and not even necessary because you can crank the torsion bars which is an equally terrible idea

You do realize guy have fit 35s on truck like yours without a lift?

I run bigger tires then you without cranking, but minor trimming. I have mudflaps that get in the way too.

My truck had the bumper trimmed and the big fender mod with flares still in place dropped 2 or 3 inches in the front with 22x12s and 305/40s which is about a 32 or 33 by 12 wide. I don’t see any reason why you’d need a kit. The valence takes less than a minute to trim per side.
