Well I think I might be getting a Killer deal on some double dueces on nitto 305/40/22 tires.

I just have shackles for the rear now, and the rims are 22x9.5's and they most likely won't tuck.

the tires measure 31.5" in diameter. This is bigger than stock if i am not mistaken.

will I be able to fit these on my truck now? I'll only run this size tire until they wear out.


what do u guys think?

two inch shackles? I've seen a silverado dropped 3/5 on 22s, but he was running the dunlop 30s.

yes. I am quite aware of the braking issues. I have Powerslot cross drilled rotors going on all 4 corners.

I will most likely stay with the 0/2" drop I have now until I get some 30 series tires and then lower it.


The tires come with the rims, so I'm pretty stoked... you guys won't belive how much I'm getting these for if the deal falls thorugh. :head:

Yeah I'd think 2/4 with that tire. I've seen on dropped 3/4 on 30 dunlops too, That's what I hate about anything bigger than 20", you can't go low unless you bag it.

Well I was planning to go with a 4/7 or 3/6 drop on 30 series tires.... that just depends on proper backspacing and such.

i have seen a 4/6 on 295/30/22 with billet but dont know if it rubbed.

i know mine is very close to rubbing on sharp turns on 285/35/22 at stock height but i have a 7.5" offset and 10" wide rims in front so there kinda deep in the fenders

cross drilled rotors have been known to have a tendency to crack when heated to much... careful with those heavy wheels..

i would look into some slotted/dimpled rotors

the idea is that cross drilled and slotted rotors work cooler than the stock ones... they worked just fine on my last vehicle which had 100+ pounds of wheel and tire on each corner, so I am gunna give them another go.
