265/75R/16 BFG AT KOs on E150
While anxiously waiting for my 2nd 2wd van from SMB wondering about tires on the E150 as last time (in 2000) i got a E350. I need to keep stock lift, but want to put the subject tires on Dick Cepek DC2 wheels which have a -12mm offset. With this tire/wheel set up, the van is lifted to 6'11", which is perfect, need to keep it under 7'. I am replacing stock front bumper with a trojan bumper, so that rub is gone. I am thinking I am going to have to rubber mallet the inside wheel well an inch or two to avoid the rub on either side?? The -12mm offset should help some?

Steve, did you ever install this setup? I am about to go 265/75/16 on my stock E350 and wondering how many issues I run into. I am not too concerned about minor rub at full lock, but any insights you have for me would be appreciated!
