Let's see your 325/65-18's on your ride

Planning my mid January lift on my 08 3500 SRW and considering the ProComp AT Extreme 325/65-18 (34.6 x 13.0) with a max load of 3860 and tread depth of 22/32 mounted on ProComp "Knight" Chrome 9089 with a 4.75" backspace and -6mm offset.

Have seen 325's on 20's but this is a work truck that sees extended highway speeds "loaded". Load capacity and handling is the priority, not "bling".

Interested more in your experience with this size tire and pictures on your ride.
Can this tuck under the lifted fenders with the correct offset? Would you do it again? And what tire do you run?

Thanks for your help Happy New Year!!

Right. Planning a 6 - 7" lift and concerned with the 325/65-18 (34.6" OD) tire "bulge" hitting the spindle knuckle as the lift specify's a 35/12.5 tire. This is not a problem with a 325 on a 20" rim, but it could be with a 16, 17, or 18 tire with more sidewall bulge. Obviously a proper offset and backspace is necessary, but the selection of work truck friendly (no bling) 18" wheels is limited.
The tire I am interested in is overkill, rated at 3860 @ 80psi, but so are the extreme "loaded" conditions traveling at highway speeds for extended time.
