Got front dropped and white walls on

Got my 2.5 dropped spindles on and cut 1 coil. Also got the white walls on. Happy with the look. High was 20 today so the whites will be blue for awhile. Now I need to drop the rear 3 or 4 inches.

Re: Got front dropped and white walls on

Looks excellent. I'm going for the same look on my 78 with the same wheels and tires, have caps, no wheels for them to go on. Have any information on wheels and tires, sizes etc. Where'd you get the white walls?

Thanks Mike

Re: Got front dropped and white walls on

Tires are 215/75/15 Nexen that I got on ebay for $204 delivered. Nice tires. The rims are the stock rims that came off my 82. I bought a set of 245/45/20 Kumho's on ebay last month for my 82 GMC and they were just as nice. Pic below.


I didn't really plan on working on two trucks at the same time but had the 82 going and just ran into the 77 and couldn't pass it up. Really straight, rust free, original paint. To many good things going for it.

Re: Got front dropped and white walls on

Well buy another truck and do both. I will tell you the 15's route is a lot cheaper. I got as much into 4 rims and tires with my 15's as I did with 1 rim and tire with my 20's
