I'm running a 3/4 drop so it doesn't need to tuck but I don' want it to look like a roller skate either.

I don't know about fitting or not. But I would go with at least 20"s. 18"s don't take up enough wheel well on a low truck. IMO
I would go and get both put on and see which you like better. I bet you roll with the 20"s.

:word: about the 20's. You might get more answers under the street or exterior subforums.

... maybe he doesnt have enough $$$ for the Dubs.. I do agree with them about the 20's, but you can still roll on 18's with that drop if you get enough tire.

Yea, I don't have the coin for dubs. The tires I want to run are 255/55/18 and are right around the same diameter as stock so they should look alright. The roads around here are $hi+ also so with the 18's I can get a little more sidewall.

I agree with Demon, just wait a little longer and save up more money. You're gonna want to get 20's after having the 18's. Might as well just get them now.

It's not so much the wheels as the tires. I was quoted 150.00 ea for the 18's and 300.00 + for the 20's - Thats some difference. Maybe I need to shop some more. I know you can get as much sidewall on a 20 but it's all relative to the rim. if the overall diameter is the same a 18 will have 1" more sidewall.

300+ for 20 inch tires sounds expensive. My brother paid 325 each for his Nittos 285/35/22. I think you might wanna shop around a little more. Get the 20's, trust me, you're gonna want them down the road, might as well save up for them now.
