Depends on the tire, the RC spindles stick out more (like gusset) causing the tire to rub them. Loneuglyfish has a RC6 and his stock rims with SS-M16s rubbed there.

I considered putting my 16" TRD wheels with 315/75-16. So I test fitted the assemblies and they hit the rough country spindles. You will need wheel spacers.

Its true, I had 2in spacers with stock rims after my install. I cant remeber the exact tire size but they were 33s. Rode like crap, aired down to 5 psi and didn't even bulge! I passed those rocks on to a Jeep owner :rofl: such idiots.

Im now running 315/75r16 DC Crushers on 16X8 American Eagle 185, cant remeber the back spacing but they clear the spindle, however I had to shave the calipers a lil. So its really hit or miss ;)

Check out my build below, you can see the progress
