Mcgaughys lift using method wheels

Mcgaughys lift using method wheels

Postby lowelco [OP] » Nov 07 2019, 3:15am

Anyone running a Mcgaughys 7-9 lift in a 2014 or newer with 17 inch Method wheels? Looking at firms to issues on the knuckle etc. Pictures of your truck with the setup ? Thanks in advance . I’ve looked on custom offsets but saw nothing.

You are just wanting to see what backspacing clears the knuckles and/or general pictures of the setup?

Honestly anything . Are you running that setup ? Do you need spacers? I’d like any info before pulling the trigger ! I assume it will clear with spacers but would rather not go that route. Thanks !

The lift manufacturers will notate the wheel sizes needed to clear. 17s are hard to clear on a lot of lifts and need to be a fairly low offset, usually in the negatives.

Even some 18s wont work without the right offset.

But in this case they list the minimum wheel size as a 17x8 with 4 5/8" of backspace.

That’s where I get confused. I’d like to run Method Wheels and they show 17 x 8.5. 0mm offset. Not sure how that end up for backspacing?

Those wont work. They are 4.75" back spacing.

Method lists the back spacing right on the wheel specs. The 4.625 back space they list is the max you can run.

So youd need the -12 offset methods. They don't make them in every style, but they do make them.

Bunch of pics online. Doesnt need to be that exact lift. Just look up lifted Silverado with method wheels.

That will get you results so you can see what it would look like. Then you just need to make sure you order the right sizes according to your lift.
