The tire size is a 255/55r18 do u think they will clear with the 2 inch spindles & 2 inch springs together because before when i was replacing the front end with new control arms I ran into problems with the lower ball joint scraping the rims when I had 17’s but the 18’s fixed that problem I just want to make sure everything is good before I put the springs on

That is because most spindles don't work with 17 inch wheels, did you do any reading before you did this?

 

Yes those wheels and tires should fit, although I don't know what 18s you have. It is possible that if you have bad offset or backspacing you will be screwed. Should work with stockers though

The ball joint has already been shaved down on both sides when I replaced the lower control arms & the rims are stock gmc 18’s on 255/55r18 coopers nothing is aftermarket at all about the setup
