I've got the BDS 5.5" for non -zr2 trucks and it has the same wheel specs. However I was able to install the Fifteen52 Traverse HD 17x8.5 wheels with 4.75 BS without any clearance issues on the beefier steering knuckle. I got a set of 3/8" spacers for the install to push the BS out to 4.375 but when it came time to put everything on I didn't need them as there was enough clearance without the spacers so I suspect the ZR2 kit is the same in that regard. I believe @G2SKIER is running the BDS ZR2 lift with the same wheels and can confirm this ( he's using the Turbomac HD wheels actually which are a different visual design but same specs).Hello all!
Been a "lurker" for several months. Proud owner of a 2018 ZR2, 2.8L. Love my truck.
Looking into the BDS 4" lift. Problem - Talking to BDS the say you must use a 20", 5.5 offset wheel.
In the install instructions they also list 17 x 8, 18 x 8, 17 x 9 & 18 x 9 all with 4.5 BS.
Does anyone have experience with this lift who can enlighten me?
Do not want any knuckle interference, and want lots of sidewall...
Thanks in advance - JT
If you do want a short spacer like that just for the little bit of extra clearance, even though it's not needed, then you will need longer wheel studs as the factory studs aren't long enough to accommodate any kind of thin spacers like that (the thicker spacers have their own extra set of offset wheel studs). The 2016 Ford F-250 uses essentially the same studs just .6 inches longer so those should work if you need them.
