Looking to see if anyone is running this setup and what offset to is needed to prevent major rubbing. I would prefer not to crank up torsion bars.

I currently have 285/75/16 and they rubbed when new but only when fully turned and hoping to find a setup with 18s that will minimally rub like the 16s

have 285/60/18 - little smaller, trimmed bumper, no cranking. Wheels are 9" wide with 5.5" BS, otherwise no fit.
For 65 series cranking advised, or more trimming....

What would happen with a 4.5" BS?

Hey man, I ran 285/60/18 with just a little bumper trimming. I currently have the bars cranked a little, but not too far. I work in A2 if you want to check out what they look like.

I had an 06 HD (not duramax but same body style), ran 16x8 American Racing Baja wheels and I had to trim quite a bit of the inner fender to stop rubbing, and also cut the bumper corner off the valance. No cranking and only rubbed when I was off camber.

I am not in AA anymore. Need to update my profile.

Pat H, What size tires and offset were you running?

Trying to figure out if one backspace, 4.5'' vs 5.7", would rub less than the other when running 285/65/18 on 18x9 wheels

285/65r18 on stock 18x8 Z71 wheels, I believe the offset is +33. I traded that truck in for my 2010 and I'm running stock tires for now.

Sorry for some reason this thread didn't come up in active topics before
