      I want to put 32" rims on my truck. I see in the sticky that a lift would be required, but it looks like that's on the factory rim and a 32" tire. does this still apply for a 32" rim with low profile tire?

      32" is 32", whether it's 90% rim, or 60% rim.

      If these 'low profile' tires have only 1-1/2" of side wall that makes a tire diameter of 35" (32"+1-1/2"+1-1/2"). Please post your current tire size, & the possible new tire size.

      While strictly my opinion, I agree with karlos2, this will look ridiculous, & it will ride like crap.

      While those wheels are not my thing, I think that’s a nice looking Explorer from the rocker panels up. I really like that color, and how it seems to darken on the bottom.
