I’ve decided that every Friday I’m going to answer a frequently asked question so that over time I will build a resource for our customers.
Can I use my factory wheels with your 2500HD 6″ suspension lift?
All stock 2500HD wheels will physically bolt back on and have clearance with our knuckle. The problem is, the stock wheels are relatively narrow for a larger tire. We’ve actually put on 35×12.50s with stock 17’s before but it’s out of the realm of the recommended tire sizes for the width of the wheel. A stock 17″ wheel is something like 7″ wide and a 16″ wheel is even narrower. Most tire manufacturers will recommend at least an 8″ wide wheel for a 12.50″ wide tire.
