Who's on 454ss wheels?

AKA Sport/Sierra GT wheels. You know the ones. I'm wanting to put a set on my truck, but don't know what size tires to get. So post up a pic or two along with your drop info and tire size. Thanks in advance

Re: Who's on 454ss wheels?

Thanks for the pics guys...anybody else?


Also...there's somebody close to me selling a nice set with GMC centers...would these be sufficient to convert them to chevrolet?

Edit for anybody who finds this in the future, see post 29

They'd be good enough for me. I wish they made them like that with blue bowties. I just like blue better than red.

BigMac, I was hoping you'd make an appearance in here. Do you have any rubbing issues from the fatter tires?

Haven't had any in the front because I rolled the fender lips. Had a minor and I mean very minor rub on the back mainly because I was hauling a 400+ pound oak tv armoire. So I made a little room on the back fender lips with a Dermel tool. Just in case I every haul anything heavy in the back again.

Re: Who's on 454ss wheels?

first picture is with 275/60/15's in front and they would have rubbed. so i went with 245/60/15 in the front and 275/60/15 in the rear. might go a little bigger in front next time.

Re: Who's on 454ss wheels?

OG, is that a 4 inch drop in front? Spindles + 2" springs? I'm leaning toward the 275/60s, but I'll eventually have spindles + 1" springs.

And you have a killer truck, by the way.

Re: Who's on 454ss wheels?

well it is a djm 5/6 drop with a 4.3 v6 in the pictures. so the front is 3"springs and 2" spindles. i did a v8 swap and it didn't come down anymore then that. i am thinking of cutting half a coil off to get rid of the front gap.this picture is when i first got it and it had 275/60 on all four with 2" front contro larms and 4" rear shackles and hangers. it cleared great. with going to the 5" drop it would have hit the fender!

$200 is a pretty decent price.
$250 is a fair price.
$300 is pushing it.
Anything over $300 and you really need to want them.
