    What size wheels & tires is everyone running? And what, if any, future plans for wheels do you have?

    I am running 275/60/15's. I want to increase the ride hieghth to run some 31's.
    But now I am thinking of other options to increase highth and not loose too much ride, perhaps some bigger size wheels, let me know if anyone has ideas on this.

    Good lord. The rod up that man's butt must have a rod up it's butt.

    I run 35's with a spacer under the coil in the front and a shackle flip in the rear...plus flared 'glass fenders. Ride is fairly stock.

    You plan on keeping this set up, or do you have plans for some dubs or so?

    I really can't afford Dubs but i am planning on getting some 18's, Boyd Coddington Smoothie's. Hopefully i will be able to get 9" in the Front and 11" in the Rear.

    2-wheel'n all the way!!!

    I am running 18x8s in front with 245/40s and 18x9.5s in the back with 275/40s on my jimmy, these are pretty short tires, but the ride is still pretty good because the truck is bagged. I plan to change to a 20x9.5 in the rear with probably a 275/40?

    74 2wd Jimmy bagged on 18s

    Currently I am running the stock 7 white steelies with chrome hub caps with I think 215/75/15's When I get it running, I will put my Impalas on it and run 275/50/17's. I am thinking in the end I will be running 20's, not sure on the size yet though....
