Post pics of your Tire and Wheel Setups on your Longbed Trucks!!

I am in the market for new tires and I currently have Rally Wheels - I want to see what the tires and wheels look like on real trucks before I buy them. Please post your pics of your setup and if you could include the brand, size of the tire and wheel that would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

KellerMac

Re: Post pics of your Tire and Wheel Setups on your Longbed Trucks!!

This is my present set up.
TT II's 16x8's with 285X60x16's Goodyear Tires on all corners.



But I am changing to the original Torq Thrust wheels...


15x7 on the front with Goodrich 225x60x15 on fronts

15x8.5x15 on the rear with Goodrich TA's 275 60 15's on the rears.

I did a lot of research but it came down to the fact that I wanted to keep the Circuit Rider period correct so these would be more acurate of the 70's time period.



The 16x8's will soon be up for sale.

Re: Post pics of your Tire and Wheel Setups on your Longbed Trucks!!

This is what the truck looked like when I got it. It had 16 X 7 Alcoa aluminum wheels with 235/85/16 Michelins.

Since then I've switched to white steelies and 265/75/16 Michelins.

Do you have a small lift, or do the 33's fit stock height?

16x8 aluminum rims from Les Schwab with 245 tires on them. Speedo is spot on with these tires and wheels.

They happen to be the same size as the tires on my son's 71 GMC .

If I had a five lug truck I'd have a set of Americans on it like those on 70CST's green one. That looks great.
