Wheel Tire Size

While my truck is in paint body shop I was looking at wheels and tires. I have a 2/4 drop with springs. I found a set of 17" torque thrust with new tires that are 235/65 front and 275/60 back. Any of you guys know if this combo will work? Too short? Too tall? Thanks for info.

Re: Wheel Tire Size

I have that combo with 5% less sidewall. My truck is dropped 4.5"/7" and the fronts are 235 55 17 and rears are 275 55 17. My front is 2 1/2" disc conversion spindles and 2" springs. Rear is a leaf spring flip.

They should be fine on your truck with that drop if the backspace is right. I have 4.5" backspace 17x8 front and 5" backspace 17x9 in the back. My truck has a wider 71-72 rear axle for that wheel/tire combo to fit. If you have a fleetside, should have no worries.
