Re: Show lowered 88-98 trucks

droppedc_class 20" front 22" rear. Don't remember tire size, but there to small of a tire.
Truck needs bigger tires, I plan on changing it soon.

Did you have to narrow the rearend for that wide of a wheel and what size tires are you running Bad ass truck

You have to have the wheel off the truck and measure the hub surface to the edge off the outer wheel surface where the edge of the wheel and the tire fits the lip. To much trouble but Thanks

I have just done a belltech 5/7 drop. I have not ordered my wheels yet, but according to measurements and confirming with a wheel right tool. I will need 6.5" BS on front with a 20 x8.5 and 6.75" BS with a 20 x 10. 255/35 and 295/35

That seems like too much backspace.

I've always ran between 5.25-5.75 on a 20x8.5 up front & between 5.5-6" on a 20x10 in back.

This is 5/7 with 20x8.5 with 5.25" backspacing with 255/35/20 front & 20x10 with 5.5" bs with 275/35/20 rear.

I'm at a loss on this thing.

I filled out the form for billet spec wheels and sent it to newstalgia wheel. They told me 6.5 and 6.75" bs. So i confirmed this with the wheelrite tool. This put me approx 3/8-1/5" away from the finder lip (they have not been rolled yet).

I used a belltech spindle (which was not supposed to push the front according to belltech) It changed the track width from 63.6 to 64.75. I used a little shop brake kit on the rear which added about .25 to both sides.

I used the dimensions for a 255/35 and a 295/35 Nitto NT555 tire.

Yeah that's does seem like a lot especially on the front. I'm not saying they are wrong but if anything I would get something in writing that states if they don't fit you can return them because I know all custom built Billet wheels normally are non returnable.

Re: Show lowered 88-98 trucks

Here's mine, Not sure the specs on the drop, my dad and uncle did it way back before the truck was mine, I'm sure that someone on here can tell about how much the drop is just from looking at it. Mind the ugly Rims I've always hated those, not sure why my uncle chose them.. I finally found some 18s I liked and ordered those recently, when I get them on I'll post some new pics


Amazing the difference lights and sport mirrors can make..

It looks like a 2" front drop and 2-4" rear drop. It looks like it may be sitting high in the rear still, so it may just be 2" rear.

It does sit a bit higher in the rear... I don't mid the rake but i want to get it sitting just a little lower out back. will probably tackle that after I swap wheels

[QUOTE=likaroc13;7824985]Clean looking truck! What wheels are you going with?

I decided on Vision wheels Torque 143. I think the gun metal gray spokes will really compliment the maroon.


My little brother had tried to get me to go back to my idea to run Cragar soft 8's on it. The more I thought about it I knew I would end up not liking all black wheels on it

Should look good & compliment the maroon as you said. My Tahoe (black) had black spokes with a polished lip, & it was still too much black for me.
