    /forums/images/graemlins/hack.gif Do yall think I might need to do a lil' fender trimming these tires to fit. Looks kinda tight. /forums/images/graemlins/histerical.gif

    But seriously, this is what I have to resort to to get my rig into my garge. I finaly doing my TPI swap that I've been putting off for 2 years. And I needed to shoe horn my rig into my garage. I manage to aquire some 8 lug 16" chevy van rims and a set of used 205/50/16 ghetto stompers.

    Cool! /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif I've got 2 sets of ghetto tires also. Mine are in the sizes of:

    225/60/16 which were off our '00 GTP after we got new tires...
    ...and 245/50/16 which were off my sisters '96 Z28 when she got new tires. Got all the tires on stock steelies and they reeeeeeaaaaaally lower trucks down quite a bit. /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif /forums/images/graemlins/histerical.gif

    It looks almost like some of the mexican rides around here, they actually aren't quite wide enough though and the tires aren't stretched over the rim quite rite, but looks similar.

    No offense intended towards the mexican people, but some of the stuff some of those people do is "interesting" /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif
