Depends on what you want it to look like. Here is 5/7 drop with 15x10 rears (5" BS) 295/50/15. Fronts are 8" rallys with 245/60/15.

If you are talking to me it is about 1/8 inch but even with a 7" rear drop the fender doesn't come down into the sidewall. I even got in the back of the truck and jumped up and down and there was a finger width of distance between the fender lip and sidewall. It just has the appearance that the fender comes down over the sidewall it is actually above it. If you know what I'm getting at.

That being said I am still gonna do a little trimming on my fender lip for piece of mind.

Re: rally wheels and stance? ?

I have 15X8 with 4 3/4 back spacing on my rallye rims.. be careful whatever rim you get doesnt have any more than 4 3/4/ inches back spacing on front or it will lock up the tims to the tie rod ends and render the truck un moveable.

Re: rally wheels and stance? ?

I, too, have been trying to decide on the tires I wish to use.

I will be using stock 15 X 8 truck rally rims.

So far, all I could find was a limited run of the 275/60/15 BF Goodrich tires.
I will be using these on the rear.

On the front, I figured that the 245/60/15 BF Goodrich tire would be OK.

I recall backspacing being an issue in the past.

What is the biggest front tire useable on a stock 15 X 8 Truck Rally Rim?

Re: rally wheels and stance? ?

my 86 is lowered 1.25 coils in the front and -1 leaf in the rear, its about a 2-3 inch drop and I run factory 15x8 rims with 275/60R15 Radial T/A tires on all 4 corners. No clearance issues anywhere.
