What are you running for tire sizes, 255-60/275-60? I love the stance.

Post #7, RShook's 1977 SWB....Awesome!!!

This truck is in my TOP 5 of 73-80 SWBs - Classic - My favorites of course are Yezzi's (all of them) and Boatpuller's truck.

275 60R15 all around.
I have to really be careful not to scrub the fronts but that's the price we pay with lowered trucks, I suppose. I think the best way would be 255 front and 275 or 295 on the rear.
I'm running stock 8" rallies with 1.25 spacers on the rear.

Got her first bath yesterday. 79 Silverado with 10,000 original miles. I like the 73-74 grilles/bezels more though.
