Default How can I fit these tires ?

I have a set of 18x10 fuel wheels Iím hoping to use .the offset is -12. I have a completely stock 2006 Chevy 2500. The tires Iím looking at are 295/65R18.
Do I have any chance of fitting these without lifting it ? Whatís the biggest tire I can fit ? Iím fine with adjusting t bars a little

I've run 265/75R16 tires on stock PYO, 285/75R16 on stock PYO, 315/75R16 on stock PYO, and 305/50R20 on 20x10 Hostiles with -12 offset.


To clear my 315s and 305s I did the "norcal mod" where you trim a seam in the fender area on the cab and flatten it. All the above tires were on a 2005 LLY. I've got 285/75R16 on my LB7 now without much issue but I don't off-road my trucks much.

You’re going to have to crank and you’re going to have to cut.

I probably should have said cutting OR cranking. I’ve had an lb7 slammed on 12 wides and 305s. Miller has his truck slammed on 14 wides and 355s. If you’re not afraid to start slicing, you can even reverse level the truck for much better ride and angles. If you don’t want to cut, you’ll have to crank. Either way, your bumper valance will lore than likely have to be trimmed.

You think itíll need a lot of cranking ? I read on another forum itís gonna he hard to fit this size because of negative offset and the fact that their 10Ē wide doesnít help either

If you don’t want to cut, yes. I’d do a NorCal and trim your bumper and call it a day
