Default tires size for 15 inch rim 4/5 drop

Could I run a 275/60/15 on the stock 15x7 rims?

----------

i think i may order 15x8 flat black rims and 275/60/15 tires with the 4/5 drop/ what you guys think?

----------

or what about 275/50/15's? what would work/look best?

275 is really wide for a 8" wide wheel. And if you're going to order wheels, you might want to go at least 16".

I kinda like that. If I go to a mustang rim what wheel spacer will I need 3/16? where can I get them?

you dont have any problems with the tires rubbing? btw, i love the look of your truck, thats what i wanna do with mine, but i dont know whether to go with 4/5 or 3 all over.

if you are going to use Mustang rims you need a minimum of 1" of spacing , I am using 1 1/2 inch spacers with my Mustang rims .
