....looking for confirmation, stock (97) rims, no drop, how wide can I go, closely maintaining the stock aspect ratio, and not rubbing on full turns?

255/60/15 out back
235/60/15 up front

Cheers,
Russ

how low are you going.

255 60 15 in rear are same height as stock and will work with a 7 inch drop no probs in back.

front 235 60 15 will work with up to a 3 inch drop 4 inch drop will rub a little thats it up top

Gracias....

Keeping the hieght stock for now, my original Tiger-
Paw's are at the end of the line, focusing on perf mods first, then appearance......

Thanks for the reply, anyone used Tirerack.com? They seem to have a great selection and resonable prices/shipping prices....

Cheers,
Russ

The 275-50-16 tire is a BFG Comp Ta it is a special order tire.
I got them from the NTB store near me where i do all my tire
stuff. I still have them at my shop, took them off when i sold
the truck. They looked great but were a little to heavy for
drag racing. Killed my 60FT and top end.
