    Go with 14s. Better looking. Not any or much noticeable ride difference and more tire choices in the future when you wear yours out.

    I'm in Missouri too. In the bootheel. Where in Missouri are you from?

    I agree, 14" wheels have more tire options. Welcome to the forum!

    Hey good to hear about a place to ride ,, We have Finger lakes in Mid MO . and i'm from the corn fields
    of northern Missouri so everything I do is either 2 lane blacktop , gravel roads, creek bottoms or just out in the timber
    by my home ,

    tires /wheels and Lift Kit

    Hello,

    Thanks for the replies ,, I went with the 9X27X14 on the front and 11X27X14 tires on the back ,, should be deliverd by tracking on Monday ,, put on a 2 " lift kit while waiting on the tires ,, on the rear 1/2 bracket I had to machine off the back of it about alittle over a inch for the back to fit ,, the front was interesting too ,, had to cut both lower bolts with cut off wheel , press out the steel sleeve and drill out the old bolt in the lathe ,, but it all turned out good and did give the 2 inch lift as listed ..
    Thanks again for the replies .

    Hello,
    have the tires on , with the lift kit & 27 " tires I gained almost 4 inches of under belly clearance ,
    not using the 2 " spacers at this time , will get a plan on wheel studs that will work and post back on them
    when I change the wheel studs for them .

    Honestly I think it looks great and wouldn't use the spacers unless your set on them. Make sure a 12mm bolt fits through the wheel or you'll have to drill them too if you decide to put 12mm studs in the spacers.
