    Anyone have U2-55 rims?

    I'm doing my research on the u2-55 rims and it looks like they come in a 26x10 with a +25mm offset. I'm doing my measurements and it looks like it will rub on the power running boards....anyone have these rims with a 305/30/26 tire on it and know if it will definitely rub or is just barely enough?

    The truck is stock height for now, I will be doing a mcgaughys 2/3 drop in a bit.

    Thanks in advance.

    I have them with the 305 tires and they will rub a bit so you need to do a bit on the fender liners to correct it. It's not horrible but it does rub. I have a 2/3 drop too but have the stationary running boards. Get 295/30/26 and you'll have a bit more room.

    Too late. Got the 305 tires and my rub is pretty severe. I will mess with the fender wells, however, my concern is im getting rubbing on the bottom of the fender, the metal portion that sticks out above the running boards (I have power boards)--not sure if a drop will help with that or what I will need to do...had to take the rims off = (

    I have these same wheels in 26s. The power running boards are adjustable to move back. I'm not sure if they were on all years, but I just picked up my 2012 and the dealer moved the power boards back for me so the 26s wouldn't rub. I'm running 295 width tires though and I have a 2/3 drop and it doesn't rub at all. Only when I crank it in reverse it will rub on the plastic inner fender wall. When I had my Denali it rubbed there too with the same set up, but after a couple months it stopped because the tired rubbed away the plastic. I haven't had any problems with it regarding the running boards though. When I had my car lowered I zipped tied the inner plastic fenders back as well.

    I don't rub any part of the fender but it does just graze the running boards. It doesn't cause me any problems. The fender liners were much more of a problem than anything else and I still get some rubbing on full lock in forward and reverse. It's a bit embarrasing in the parking lot but otherwise it is harmless.

    When I launch my boat and have to crank it full lock in reverse the rub is so loud. All my friends wonder what the hell is going on haha.
