Will my 18 in oem wheels fit on 4 in suspension lift from rancho?

Asked by Jan 02, 2017 at 11:23 AM about the 2008 Hummer H3 H3X

Question type: Car Customization

I'm thinking of buying the 4 in. suspension lift from rancho, but I have read that oem wheels wont fit after the kit is installed. If this is true why, and are there possibly adaptors that I can install to reuse the oem wheels? Wright now I'm running a 315/70/18. Torsion bars are cranked. Tires don't hit. I'm just looking to put some more space between the tire and fender. I might put a body lift in too.

If you don't do any heavy off road-ding then don't do a suspension lift, it changes the center of gravity greatly and makes rig that is slightly top heavy to begin with, very top heavy. If you want more fender clearance measure it out and see if you can go smaller diameter wheels and low profile tires.

If you don't want to get a wider wheel you can get a nice set of Billet Double Hub-Centric Bolt On Wheel Spacers. But I would suggest at least looking at wheel options from XD with offset designed for lifted trucks. All the geometry caster, camber, and toe gets altered with a lift and that means that if the alignment shop can't return factory specs your stock wheels may actually rub more after the lift.
