Question Trie size / Fitment

I plan on getting 16x8 rim and running a 205-55r16 tires. My Hardbody is lowered about 3-1/2 inches and I wanted to know if I will have any fitment problems or rubbing. Thanks

Hi 96,
I have the Titan 17x7.5(?) with 205/50/17s and I have no rubbing issues. BUT I did need to stretch the rear fenders out just a touch(maybe 1/4 inch) with a piece of wood and a scissor jack to get the rear fender arch to stop catching the tire..... I am lowered about 4 both front and rear. Here are some pics: http://www.infamousnissan.com/forum/...p?albumid=2857

I would suggest mounting the rims dry(without tires) and running a straight edge up the side of the wheel to see if your rims stand out past the body edge to confirm that you do or do not have things to worry about clearing.

I just got some of the 18” titan rims, 5 spoke, and was wondering what tire size I can run without doing any suspension mods, or any mods for that matter.

I have a 94 short bed, 2wd.
