are you plannin to lower it at all in the future?
what size tires are on the rims now?
what size are your stock wheels/tires and how do you think they look in relation to fillin up the wheel well?

255/60s are about 29" and a little more than 10" wide so theyll work well with the 9" wide wheels

i have 14s now with 215/75s and they are small, i had it lowered 4 in the rear before hunting season and now since its over im going to drop it again, the stock 14s dont feel up worth a crap in the back but the front is about perfect and lowered in the rear its about the same front and rear...
