BB, drive on factory wheels? At all

I order wheels and they got delayed. I went ahead and started lift. Think I can drive on the factory wheels to the tire shop? Its Really just a few blocks. Just Easier then picking them up in my truck then installing, then back to the shop for alignment.

Truth, I've only done the rear, sway bars are fairly close to the rubber. I don't know what front will look like. I also did not look to see how close they were before I took it all apart.

Not exactly sure what you're asking but after I completed my 2.5" BB, I drove on the factory wheels and rubber for about 2 weeks before I got my new tires. Still using the stock wheels along with spacers.
