Best combo to avoid rubbing?

Best combo to avoid rubbing?

Postby LRod [OP] » Nov 07 2019, 5:56am

These are the combos I'm thinking about:
-CST 4.5 or Zone 4.5 lift
-20x9 0 offset wheels
-305/55/20 or 33x12.5x20 or 295/55/20 tires

Which combination do you think will work without rubbing/no trimming on my LD 4x4?

I have 275/60R20 on my truck with stock wheels and a 2" level. All of the tires you have listed are just slightly wider than mine. I think that you can fit those tires with just a level and the 0 offset rims you mentioned. So either lift kit will work.

I ran a 295/60 on a 20x10 -19 with my CST 4.5” lift (adjustable reservoir coilovers and add a leaf) and had to do a mini norcal mod because i rubbed when the suspension flexed.

295/60/20 is about an inch taller than the ones I listed. So that makes me think that the ones I posted might not rub. I'm also planning on light trailing and no major off roading to cause any flexing.

So it should possibly work considering that your tire size is roughly the same height as the sizes I posted.
Thanks!

Id say pull the trigger on any of those tires on the rim you stated and most defiantly go with the CST kit. Very good quality lift kit and their customer service is top notch!

Zone kit will push your front tires out 1.5in on each side on the front. Remember that.

CST kit all day long.

And any of those tires will with just fine.

You can fit 35s with the CST kit with the right offset.

But I run 20x10 -19 offset and 33x12.5 tires and still have a little room.

I had a ton of room with my 0 offset wheels.

The 33x12.5 and 305/55r20 is about the same size tire. Basically the same width just the 305 may be a little taller, usually a true 33" tall depending on the exact tire.

CST so far has been my #1 choice. Reason I've also considered the Zone is because I hear good things about it as well and it's much cheaper. But apparently it's less money but good quality.

I know, we've discussed it before. I know it's not stock track but I also wonder if that 1.5 on the zone would actually help (or not) in clearance for the rubbing.
