Pictures 1972 Super Cheyenne New Wheels and Tires

(SORRY FOR SUCH LARGE PICTURES CAN THE MODERATOR RESIZE)
I did a lot of research and gathered all info so I could find wheels and tires to bolt on with no problems and after looking I decided on;

5X5 Riddler 695 chrome wheels with Nitto tires
Front 20X8.5 with 255/45/R20 with 4.75 back spacing
Rear 20X10 with 285/40/R20 with 5.50 back spacing


They fit perfect and bolted right on, looks nice and drive great! my truck has a 4/6 drop on.

I bought these online from a dealer in Ohio as a package, mounted/balanced with lugs and shipped to Georgia for under 2K. Ordered on a tuesday and they shipped on Wednesday and I recieved them to my door on Friday and mounted them that night!

Great service if anyone want there info I will forward it, but not sure if I can post it here (forum rules)

I really like that color scheme.
Looks like Big Al's truck!

I'm religiously opposed to dropped trucks with big rims, and even I think those look nice. Good choice!

Good looking truck. Those wheels do look good. I put the 18 inch grey on my truck. Very good wheel with no fit problems. Very good price too!

Re: Pictures 1972 Super Cheyenne New Wheels and Tires

Very nice looking truck! How does your braking feel with the over sized wheels and tires? How far off is the speedometer? I'm considering doing something very similar but concerned about braking, added stress to drive line and front end parts.

Re: Pictures 1972 Super Cheyenne New Wheels and Tires

Considering I do not like big wheels on 67/72's your new wheels work perfectly with the color and stance on your gorgeous swb.

Re: Pictures 1972 Super Cheyenne New Wheels and Tires

Just noticed your before and after pictures. What was your old wheel size?

Beautiful truck!!!
