I'm running 275/55/20's on a 2/4 McGaughy drop (actually on a 3 1/2 rear drop). I loved the McGaughy kit. Perfect fit and finish. Easy install. Right about $400 with shipping. I preferred a kit with drop spindles rather than dealing with changing lower control arms and I didn't want to change my springs. I have a completely stock ride. I haven't even hit the trimmed down bump stops yet.
I can't answer your tire width question. Worse case scenario would be you would have to sell your tires and pick up some 275/55's.
As far as the front end alignment ... absolutely! I realigned it within 2 days of installation and the ride was significantly improved. I had serious negative camber after installation. It still drove straight and didn't shimmy but it would have destroyed the tires, it looked like ass and I know it had a negative impact on high speed comfort.
Im not even sure, they came on it from factory, im sure they are between 8 and 9, no idea on the back spacing. the wheels will go in the fenders, its the 285/50 tire that im worried about so i was thinkin of getting some 275/45
Well, I just got back from mcgaughys and they told me no way would my tires fit, and that even a 275/45R20 wouldnt fit, are there any 255 or 265 tires that are around 28-30 inches in diameter that are pretty cheap?
