If you are going to drop the truck ,wait to buy the tires and rims . once you have dropped the truck you will have a better idea of how much room you have for tires . then look at rims/tires to fit and fill the wheel wells

I think the Boss 304 would look good

I think they only make them in 17" 18" and 20"

the question here is how low are you wanting to go? with a 2/3 you can still run the stock size tire, if you go 4/5 you can run stock size, but going around turns it will hit the inner fender wells if there are any bumps


i went 225/60/16's during the nice season on my truck, and for winter it the stock size 225/70/15's

with the 15" winter tires


with the 16" summer tires

probally the easiest way to drop in the rear is to flip the rear hangers, thats what i did on the rear of my 2001, you still have plenty of space away fromt he bump stops
