90 C1500 wheel offsets
I found some wheels locally,but not sure if they will work. They are 20x8, 0 offset, 4.5 BS. My truck has stock suspension (lowered with shackles in the rear). Will these work. I plan to maybe do a 4/6 on the truck in the future.

check out my thread....i run a 18x7 front with 4.25 and there is no more available room to the fender. i am looking at a 20x8 but with a 5.5 BS. this will allow the wheel to tuck a little better.

now, i am on air so they may differ slightly in you favor, but that drop and a wheel that is flush with the outer edge of the fender isnt something i prefer.

Thanks Stormin08. I like the wheels and the stagger. I might think of staggering mine now.

Here are some pics.
1. The day I got it, and the hot rod wheels it has in it.
2. The nasty vinyl flooring.
3. After the carpet installation and dynamat.

i would measure that wheel. it looks to be an 8 wide with around 5-5.25 bs.

the pic i posted is a 4.25 offset on a 7" wide...but the reference is for how the wheel tucks.

the 8 wide i am looking at is 5.5, so it should tuck a touch more ( .25"), where as now when i air down, i had to roll my fender lips, the 5.5 on an 8 will give me an additional .25 to the fender lip.
