Where you been pappie?

That kid may have been able to use the stock rims, I did. But I don't see hime using the stock stires that came with the truck. I had to go down to a 225/60/15 and the rear tires rub the outer inner fenderwell. And that is with cutting it completly to the edge. The front clears no problem, but any taller tire would require to remove the fenderwells.

:D sold the dak.... got a s-10... got divorced...... baby girl.... finally knuckled down and started customizing trucks again. Its been a real trip.

See thats what I thought. I just could see it layin.... Shiot, my dak spare tire is taller than my twinkies on the s-10. heres the proof. No worries.... I sent him yuguizez way for more advise. He's now startin on the rear bags. Damn I wish Daks where as easy as s-10s. I ordered a whole bolt on kit for the rear of the s-10 and almost cried on how easy it was to put together

I was running a 25" tall tire and I cleared front and back wit some lip trimming in the rear. Your tire is ~26" so it will be close but doable. You will probably be able to keep the front inner liners as I was I didnt have a lot of room but I had enough. You are just going to have to put the back on and see if they hit, It all depends on the offset of the wheel and the modifications to the fender lip.

Here are some pics to somewhat reference how much a 25" tire tucks. 1" o.d. is not a lot more depending on offset.
