Considering 20's.......but cant find the tires I want.

Well my original plan when I bought the truck was to prosteet it but I just dont have the heart to cut this one up so I'll save those plans for another one someday. Anyway I know I'm late to the party but I think I'm going to pull the trigger on some black Showwheels, 8.5's and 10's. I think these would follow the theme of my truck which is black trimmed in chrome. I want a little more meat in the back than a 295/40/20, I've seen some with 315/40/20 but I cant seem to find where to get them. Who sells them?

I've never heard of a 315-40-20 (315-40-19's were on Fords GT-40's). There is the common 315-35-20 now...

Building a small, high rpm engine
with the perfect bore, stroke and rod ratio is very impressive...
like a highly skilled Morrocan sword fighter with a Damascus Steel Scimitar.

Cubic inches is like Indiana Jones with a cheap pistol....

Anxious to see what you get JNight... I often ponder the ideas of 20's, but still love the classic rallies. I think those wheels with the black center will look great on your truck!

I run a 305/35/20 in the rear and a 275/40/20 in the front. Looks great.

I guess I was searching for the wrong aspect ratio, 40 instead of 35.

John check out the 295/45r20s for the rear. Little more side wall.

Yea I think I may have to go that route, but I did find some Lexani tires under $200each.

Dont EVER look at summit racing for tire pricing!! They are outrageous!!

Id look at the Nitto invos if I were you. I ran them on my 20s and have them on my 22s. Great tire. Plenty of sizes in 20s
