Your Tires Should Fit (or, Making Trucks Stuff) – So Many Details on Proper Wheel & Tire Clearance for Your Trail Rig [Originally Aired 02.23.23]
It’s not like the Garage Hour to leave you behind on-trail – we’ll laugh at you a bunch, but then we can fix it (perhaps with a Sawzall). Some thoughts on making tire-to-wheel-well fitment right before we find you: trailing arms, tire sizes, Pahnard bars, shackle positioning, pinion angles, bump stops, spacers, 4Runners, Wranglers, XJs, backspacing, fenders and Dremel blades… Guest appearances by Rock Hound Off-Road, Fageol Superchargers, Dirty Dave’s Super Pooper and Gov. Used Car Hair.
While we’re at it: bread is yummy, hot-boxing ruins resale, killing whales and birds, false electric-car advertising, snow in L.A. because it’s winter, VW takes the carjackers’ side, Ford isn’t on yours, and beer acting weird at 13,000ft.
