With 36x12.5-16 TSL radials an 16x8 HellCats with a close to stock offset will I need flare or will the tires not stick out very far?

Thanks.

it only has a 9 inch tread width and you are putting them on an 8-inch wheel. i don't think that they will stick out very far. if you go with a flare, i would go with only about 1 1/2 inches... might be best to mount them up first.

Thanks for the info. That is what I was planning since the lift goes on Monday. I figure I can look at it there in the shop and figure out if I need or want flares. I kind of like the look without them but wasnt sure how far the tires would stick out.

Bill,

It should be pretty flush like my truck. Do you know what the b.s. is on the wheels? Let me know when you're truck is done...I'd really like to see it! Let's hook up for lunch...

Tunis,

The bs is very close to stock from what I am being told.
I guess I will find out in a day or two since I am leaving for Sac this after noon and the install starts in the morning.
Unless I find a hotel that has internet access I will be off line till late tuesday.

I have 36/12.50/15 TSLs on 15x10 rims and I needed to get flairs (got pulled over for it)
I dont know what the BS is on these rims as I got them used (dose anyone know how to measure the BS?) I think a tire looks better if it is sticking out a little, I do think mine stick out a little to much!!!

To measure backspacing, take the tire off lay it so the back of the rim is facing up. Put something flat across the top of the rim, like a ruler. Measure from the flat edge of the ruler to the part of the rim that butts up against the rotor(hub seat), that is your backspacing. There is a picture at http://jtoutfitters.com/info/tires.html
Hope that helps.

Nick.
