Default Titan wheels on hardbody

I was just wondering what I would have to do to get titan wheels to fit on my hardbody.what size tires should I go with and any other bs that I would have to do. I like the new pro 4x titan wheels. My truck had no suspension mods and don't plan on doing anything to it.

Try using the search function up top, this topic is everywhere
You need to bore the rim to fit the hardbody hub, some go to a machine shop, others have done it themselves with a router.

Yeah same as eddie stated. If your suspension is stock it'll fit. Jus need them bored out. I got 6spoke 18" titans on my hardbody with a minor 2" drop. The tire size I went with is 225/40R18. I'll post a pic tomorrow

Bore em 4" wide, 1\2" deep. Some 235\45r18s would look good. U can go a lil bigger since ur not dropping it. Depends on how much of the wheel well gap u wanna fill.

Boring is not hard to do urself. I helped a friend bore some qx56 rims the other weekend. Use lube and go slow. I want some prox4 rims but they less offset than my 6spoke titans. Which means harder to tuck but if u have no plans for that, go for it. 235/40 18 will put u 2tenths of a inch smaller than stock size. I run 225/40 and like them.

Id recommend not using stock lugs either. I went and bought some bulge acorn lug nuts. Stock type just didnt have enough holding the rim on. M12x1.25 is lug nut size.

Man i really want prox4 rims on mine. Had to say it again. Somebody here has some pics i think. Tho ive only seen once and dont remember where it was. Might have to find me some and MAYBE shave the back side down to match regular titans. If its possible with keeping the strenght of the rim as best i can. Probably not possible but its a thought.

@tox.sick - thanks man. I painted it white about a week before I put my titans on. Gonna lower it on spindles and redrilled springs in a few weeks. Hopefully looks more flush.
