1995 f150 4x4 regular cab extended bed. I have the aluminum wheels that came stock on that truck i cant remember the exact deminsions. I want a 2.5 lift to 3 inch lift. Rough country has a 2.5 suspension lift and recomends 32x11.50's which i do beleive to fit my wheels. but do you beleive i could get 33's on there and/or which do you think would be better. and whats the word on rough country lifts? any help is much appreciated ill try and post a few pics of the truck as soon as i figure out how.
Rough Country lift are great lifts. I've helped put a few on at a buddy's shop on jeeps and a few trucks and they are pretty easy to install and they hold up great. I'm sure that 33x12.50s would fit fine. it all depends on wheel size and offset. also some people like the wheel wells to be mostly filled by the tires and other like more room in there. its all personal preference. putting 33s on the stock rims may be a little big but craigslist always has an abundance of rims for sale for pretty cheap. the only reason i suggest a wider rim is because with having a 11.50 or 12.50 on the stock rims, you may see funny tire wear. i would say 10 inch rims and 33x12.50s on the 2.5 inch rough country lift would be a great set up. i am looking into this set up for my truck this coming spring too
Hello all. I'm new here but I was reading this post and I have a comment that may be helpful. I have a 94 regular cab with a 2.5 inch lift kit with 33 x 12.50 tires on stock rims. The only problem I have encountered is a little rubbing on the radius arms when turning real hard to the right or left. This would be taken care of by a set of aftermarket rims with a decent offset. Other than that the kit is awesome. The stance is good the clearance is good and it handles really good on the road. I drive my truck 60 miles a day one-way to work and the ride is great. I have ran murders and at's , I prefer the at tires due to the miles I drive on the highway but the murders look wicked. Thank you for reading. I have some pics I can send if you are interested.
sounds good, ya i really would hate to part with my aluminum wheels, they look factory still and to me they just look awsome. but one other question, once the kit is installed does it make any differecne leveling out the front any? or should i just go ahead and add a leveling kit to the front whil shes all apart?
With mine all I done was add a 1 inch block to the rear. Now I set level. One thing you will need to get that is not in the kit is adjustable camber bushings. Just go for the good ones, I got Moogs for mine
