    What bs are you running in the rear? The 295’s must be tight? I have 275’s in the rear and want to go bigger next time

    Looks great! I'm currently looking for a new setup here-- Wheel and Tire Packages |4WO though can't decide yet which style to get. What is the brand/model of your wheels? Width? Any rubbing issues?

    Fronts 18x8 245x40 CA7CF7C5-0A24-4507-83F5-81D7827C940A.jpeg 33B943E4-B8A8-4BE8-88B9-CD669B17FC05.jpeg
    Rear 18x9.5 275x40 F17E9825-C4D2-4C5D-B7B6-AA96ABBA273E.jpeg

    Now that they are on I could have gone taller and wider on the rear. I am at my limit on the front, but I may be switching out my 1/2” lowering bushings back to stock Height bushings in the near future.

    I have no issues. But make sure to measure and measure again. I rolled my quarters in some before starting paint and body last week to be safe and have that ease of mind. 7"front 11"rear. Should have went 12"rear. Bonspeed (Huningtons) is the wheel. Service sucks. Every excuse in the world. Product is good once received. Over double the time quoted to be made.

    Hi Printstron, I cant deside between the American Racing or US Mags ,are u satisfied with your wheels quality fitment. 9.5 in width on rear scares me , what distance do u have between tire an outer quarter, I will be doing a disc conversion soon an it adds 3/8 in. to axel flange, (thickness of rotor hat section axel flange contacts)which will throw wheel outbd. an less distance between tire an wheel opening, I dont want to roll wheel opening . I just may half to settle with 18 8s Front an Rear . 18 with 4.5 bs with 245 will leave plenty of room , but would rather get 18 9.5 5.25 bs VN507.
    If u could measure tolerance by tire an pinch weld. Thank you be safe
