I'm running 295/40/20 tires and a 2/3 DJM (Lowering arms and blocks) drop on my R/T. The truck went down lower than I thought, and now the tire's rub up front when you hit any little bumb. So now im looking for a fix. Should i run a smaller tire say a 255/35 20 and if i run this what risk do i put on my rims running this small of sidewalls? Any info to help would be great Thanks

i think i would go with a smaller tire, rather than cuting on you truck.

that looks good.where di you get your kit?

the front of your truck is lower because you still have the 1" stock drop coils.thats why it sits lower.am i correct someone??

looks like i might get that kit....looks really nice with the 20s.what wheels are those??

hey, are those the nitto extreme 555...those are the tires i just ordered today...because just as Alta Boy told me, i would rub, and i surely did :bow: i did a different drop though, i was running 255/50 R20...and did a 3/5 DJM drop...and well...lets just say...it rubbed all the way there on the freeway...not nice. So..i ordered some nitto 35 series shoes today. I think i should be gravy. Heres a picture from a car show i was at... (the day after i lowered it)
