Default Any pictures of 26" rims on a 09-12 F150?

Hi there,

I'm new to the site and have just recently bought a 2012 Harley Davidson Supercrew. I know some people may not like the style that I'm going for but am seriously thinking about doing a 2" lowering shackle in the rear and putting 26" Lexani Johnson 2's on the truck....

Was just looking for some feedback from anyone that has either done the same or have any pictures of something similar.

26's and lowering too...

I have a 2009 F150 with 18 wheels on 265X70X18 Michelins which raised the truck a couple inches. I upped the tire size as much as possible without sacrificing or modifying the fender wells, steering and frame.

If I went any larger my turning radius would limited. Full left or right turns and the tires would rub.

On the new Platinum lineup, the new 2013 Super Duty has 20 inch rims and the F150 has 22's.

Reckon going larger than those sizes will bring serious thought to road handling and stability. Dropping just 2 inches might not do much for you since you plan to go 26in.

Let us see some of the pictures you got.

What we leave behind are our words and our deeds. Nothing else really matters.

I don't have a picture of a new ford, but I saw a brand new denali truck at Carlisle this past year on 26's. It was dropped 2 or 3 inches, 4x4 taboot. He had some serious inner fender trimming done and bags done in the rear, a ton of work and the truck had 600 miles on it. It looked really awesome, the 33" tires looked like rubber bands, but so awesome.

Neither am I. Too much money for so little rubber.

Now to the question. With the truck being so new, you'd have to consider what running 26's might hinder. Like your warranty. If there is any premature wear on suspension parts or alaignment Ford will blame it on the 26's. On the other hand, if you stick with the same width of wheel, a tire diameter as close to stock as possible, and the same wheel offset as stock, i wouldn't see any issue to the bigger rim outside of a little extra weight.
With that said, a 2" shackle drop should be cake.
