I really like these wheels and have started paying for them advise me whether to
sell them or keep them. BTW I have a 95 GMC Sonoma Ext cab 4.3/5spd with stock
suspension but I really want to lower it at least 2 inches all around but I can
only lower it 2 inches in the front than that is fine. Here they are:
http://www.sporttrucksspecialty.com...ss/boss_004.htm They have 5.5 inch
backspacing and have a +14mm offset. I know that 2 inch drop spindles push out
each wheel 0.5 inch correct? I could also get a set of 1.3 inch spacers for the
front and 1.8 inch spacers for the rear. I think that would give me enough
clearance on the front turning radius right? Would they stick out since they
would be moved out 1.8 inches on top of being 9 inches wide already? Please
respond! Thank you.

The problem is that all 4 wheels I ordered are those specs. The guy at the wheel shop said that they would fit, which they will because they will bolt up, but he didn't mention anything about backspacing.

actually i think that there was a whole thread about whether or not he would be rice if he got the WRX STI. I love those cars and they are so fuggin fast. i can only imagine the work he has done to his. i just don't see how a guy who is that good with trucks could get away from it. is he still working on others' trucks?
