Hello all I have some 15x7 Rims. I am running a 3" drop in rear (DJM blocks) and 2" drop in front (new DJM control arms). My current wheels on truck are 245/70/16r and the gap between the wheel and fender I want to keep as similar as possible.

Anyone know what size tire I can run with these rims to keep the gap the same? Would 255/70/r15s work?

Find the installed height of your current tires (for instance, a 245/70R16 would be nominally a 29" tire), then find what 15" tires are the same diameter (https://tiresize.com/chart/ has a long list of similar diameter tires in 15" rim size).

After you find a list of tires that are the same height, check and see which ones have the same or higher load range so you don't overstress the tires.
