New Drop...New Wheels and Tires!

I put a ECE 4/6 drop and some new Showwheel Streeters from Street3285 ( Great guy to deal with)!
I have been stuck in the 80's for 25 years and decided to join the 2000 crowd.

The first is a before pic. I have had the truck since 1989 and it has looked exactly the same since being painted in 1991.

Specs are 20x10 with 295/45/20 proxes and the front are 18x8 with 255/45/18 proxes. I know the sidewall is a little tall for most, but the last pictures will show why!

Re: New Drop...New Wheels and Tires!

10 miles of dirt road is why I can't have anything nice. It is also why I have the taller tires!

Re: New Drop...New Wheels and Tires!

Those look great! I hope the dirt road isn't your driveway, it would be a drag to dirty those beauties up! If it is you should park it by the hiway and ride your bike out there!
Very nice!

Re: New Drop...New Wheels and Tires!

Nice, those wheels and tires fit perfect! The gravel road dust washes right off, i know, small price to pay for the piece and quiet! Looks great! Joseph

I know what ya mean, I grew up on 10 miles of dirt road. Of course, when I lived out there, I never had anything that you could tell the difference between the oxidation and the dust on the paint. The truck looks great reguardless. I was also curious if you could tell me what mirrors and single peice gless set you have on that too. They look pretty clean and I am trying to get some idea's for my Blazer.

Re: New Drop...New Wheels and Tires!

What a difference, and looks great! Nice stance and I like the taller tires, it fills up the fender wells.

Your truck will have to go in our gallery when we get it finished & uploaded to the site.

If you go to the website and select the size you want, the backspacing will be there. Select Wheels, Showwheels, Polished and the sizes will be there. Easy to navigate and very reasonable.
