    ANY CHANCE OF MAKING THESE FIT WITH A 2.5 INCH SHACKLE WITHOUT SOME FENDER TRIMMING?? IF NOT SHOULD BE ABLE TO RUN 33'S WITHOUT A PROB???

    I highly doubt 34's will fit with only a shackle lift considering that 2" longer shackles only provide a true lift of about 1". I am installing a 4 inch lift to fit 33's with no fender trimming. I think 32's with shackle are your best bet, 33's with some fender trimming.

    I ran 33x12.5 on a cruiser for two years with just some longer shackles and some trimming in the rear, sure it rubbed at full flex but who cares, get out and wheel. :beer:

    SWEET!! THE SHACKLES I'M LOOKING TO GET ARE SUPPOSED TO GIVE 2.5 OVER STOCK LIFT. I HAVE NO SAG NOW AND CAN WHEEL THE 80% TREAD 31'S WITHOUT A RUB. I THINK I'LL GIVE IT A SHOT.

    THANKS DINGO. 2 BACK ATCHA :beer: :beer:
