      Looking at picking up another gen 2 explorer-

      Planning on doing a f150 4x4 t-case swap, 3" body lift, TT/Shackles and 32x11.5s on 15x8 Procomp steel wheels.

      Pretty basic and have been looking all over the forums to see if i will have rubbing issues with this setup as i want to keep the flares.... most everything i see are trucks without flares or the flares have been removed...... whos run or is running this setup with flares? any rubbing? any idea what offset/backspacing you have?

      wheel im looking at is your basic pro comp steel
      • Wheel Size: 15x8
      • Bolt Pattern: 5 on 4.5
      • Backspace: 3.75
      • Offset: -19
      going to be a basic street drive weekend beach sand crawler.

      thanks

      I have same wheels and tires no rubbing at all with just the bl .... The tt and shackles definitely complete the look and I highly doubt your eb flares will be an issue

      You might have to trim just the inside edge or corner that hangs in regardless of 32" or even 33". It kinda pokes out and it hits even 31s on stocks trucks. Quick utility knife trim and it's good to go.
