Little red demon back on the road!

Was curious why the new dually was sucking fuel like there's no tomorrow, well since it's a short bed it has the small tank, and ran RPO codes, 4:56's out back!!! So I'm going back to daily driving the shorty! Threw some big and Little rallies on, and lifted the rear up a few inches. Much better!!

This one is a 305, but so far just as good on fuel as my 94 with a v6 was, and the dually is great for when I need to pull something!

So what do you have for front rim/tire size? Iam looking into running 235/60r15-15x6.5(van rallye) front and the same size you have for the rear 275/60r15 - 15x8.

And how much drop is that, 4/6?
