If you say so. Hell what do I know. Your truck your money.

Back to the original question though, I think you are going way to wide of a tire for the truck without adding fiberglass fenders.

You might want to consider only pushing the width to 10 inches. Most have run into rubbing issues with wheels that goes past a 0mm offset. Now I'm absolutely positive a 12" wide wheel will be in the negative offset. Also, a 0 offset on a 12 inch wide wheel is not the same as on a 9 inch wide wheel so keep that in mind even if the fuel's are a 0mm wheel.

Ok, I just checked out the specs and it looks like the offset is a rediclous -44. I would say these do not work and fuel might have just had them on a Raptor for photos.

For a street queen, sure. For someone who uses it off-road, not so much.

Take a look at this thread:
This is why spacers are a bad idea. (And lots of cv axle innards pics)

If you go mid perch you loose ride comfort. The leveling block allows you to keep the balance for driving.
i will be using as my daily as well as off road.
But thanks!

Mid perch you gain ride comfort. The truck was designed at mid perch level but had to be changed due to DOT standards to be able to be sold.... the leveling kit hurts yours trucks ability to be a raptor. Should have just got a platinum for the same money.

12" wheel.... full lock you will contact the fire wall unless you have a pretty good offset... try to stick with 10'' its a safer bet and I will save you some body plastic


We are trying to help you, some are bigger asses and are less tolerant of "lack of tribal knowledge".... but just sit back and listen to the advice because this advice comes from a bad decision or screw up from 1st or 2nd hand experience.

We aren't trying to bash you. If you look around there have been a couple documented issues using the leveling kit. It will take some mileage to see the problems but just keep it in mind.

Any greater than -6mm offset and you will have issues in the long run. I am saying this from personal (expensive, not covered under warranty) experience (17x10 -12mm)..

Just like top perch (leveling kit) once the front is lifted above 26.5" (measured from center of wheel to fender lip) on 2012+up. You will have issues with tearing cv boots and cv shaft binding (again not covered under warranty).

Another thing to consider is the Raptor suspension is designed to work with the tires sidewall flex. This is the reason Ford/SVT went with 17" wheels, once you plus size your wheels. You have to run a smaller sidewall size on your tires which increases the harshness of the suspension.
