Smile Wheel setup question *first post, just joined*

What's going on guys .. I have been a fan of this site for a long, long time but until last Sat I just didn't have a truck so I never registered.

I am now the proud owner a 69 short step frame off project a guy was working on and couldn't finish. I have a nice 69 Big Block just waiting to go in it. I'll post build pics as soon as I can.

I have a question about wheel / tire setup. What do you guys run on the SWB step trucks? I think you can get more tire under a fleetside as I have read (?) Just need some help with the offset and wheel / tire combo. I'm thinking 18's all the way around, or possibly 18/20. I like a little tire and I'm not sure 20's would leave enough sidewall for my personal taste.

Any suggestions? Maybe some pictures with wheel / tire size and what backspace you're running? I like the Coys wheels, Boss 338, Rocket, etc.

Thanks in advance.
