Re: Show lowered 88-98 trucks

The goal was a timeless hotrod flavor..truck has been done since 2012. Only had about 10k miles since done.

Work.just didnt allow any time to really enjoy, mostly parts store runs and a couple cruises.

I'd say you nailed your goal.

Truck looks great! Are those 20" American Racing? If so what width and back spacing?

Re: Show lowered 88-98 trucks

I will have to dig up the specs...
They are actually Coys, bought 10 yrs ago.

18 x 7 front
20 x 8 rear

I decided to go 20" front this year...and they sent a wheel spec'd for the rear.

I decided to keep them and order the correct 20...i felt it would be easier to sell 4 wheels vs 2.

When they arrive, i will have 4 for sale.

The new will also recieve a 1/8" red pinstripe at the beads edge.

Re: Show lowered 88-98 trucks

Looks like:

Front wheel back spacing would be around 5.5 - 5.75". Rears would be around 5.75 - 6.0":

Mathematically? They should fit.

Me? I would break out the measuring tape & use my current wheels/tires to determine w/more certainty of a yes or no. Look for things that are close to interfering & see how much wiggle room you have.
