^^^ that'll fit easily. No problems. And it seems that a 10.5 will fit without problems too. Lol now the question is, will 11 work up front? Haha jk I wouldn't do that.

Yeah. I know it'll fit. Tire size is my main concern.
Seriously tho. As aggressive as I've seen some 10s. I think one could get away with 11s. But I think it would take some work.

You might need a fender roll. Nothing crazy though. Just a normal roll.
