    I need to swap mine from side to side, I'll get a measurement, Chris wanted to know too, but 12" Hoosiers fit just fine.

    I need to know too, I'm going to 12" rims when I swap to a Ford 9", I HATE tires that stick out from the body and I'm thinking about ditching the fender flares.

    My inspiration.....

    Don't ditch the fender flares
    I put my new rear wheels and tires on, one side sticks out 7/8" more then the other side.
    My 93 dakota was the same way
    And I hated it when I had my ccw's on and the passenger side stuck out

    I'm pulling my rear out and narrowing it.

    Leaving the caltracs for now. I'll have about 3/8 between tire and leaf when I'm done

    You are gonna need the flares to tuck any tire on a 12" wheel with what ever back spacing offered Imo
    Unless you narrow the rear and move leafs

    I'm going to put the fender flares back on my truck, also I would run a NON W 28x10.5 on the 15x10 rim. Remind me to measure my 15x10 Bogarts when I get home, I still have them in my garage rafters.

    EDIT: only because the Detroit Locker hates the right hand turn we have to make to the water box, it unlocks the driver's side, in a bracket race I can't back up to line up.

    I'm running 15"x10" rims with 28"x12.5" M/T ET Streets with 6.5" BS (pictured). I believe to keep stock spacing is 7" BS with 10" wide rim. My new rear end is 1/2" narrower (per side) to bring them back in some.

    Does anyone else's truck tires stick out more on one side then the other in the rear?
    From center/top of fender flare to side of tire. Mine has a difference of 7/8"

    A Long time ago I saw this before and I'm not saying this is what's happening to you. The guy had a spool on a regular leaf spring configuration. The unbalanced torque from just regular driving, caused the entire rear end to "shift" on one side so indeed, one of his tires stuck out more on one side. He discovered a bent shackle that led to this clue.

    I am running Hoosier QTP 28x11.5x15 on Centerline 15x10 wheels with 6.5 backspacing. the bulge of the tire is dead even with the edge of the fender flare. this tire actually measures 11.7 wide at its widest point (the bulge) and 10 inches wide where it contacts the pavement.

    Yes! Even with my completely stock suspension you could visibly see it if you stood back 15 feet. I just chalked it up to the spring perches being welded Incorrectly from factory


    Mods - TB Spacer, Short Throw Dipstick, Performance Auto Zone Intake "0.30 over bore", R/T Cam, Performance Chip, Radiator Delete

    Rev limiter? that's what valve springs are for!
