I need some help with what I should do to fit 26s on my CC NNBS with a 4/7 drop. Like what size tires I should use and wheel weel trimming etc. Any advice would be appreciated because I saw a few trucks on here with that setup and I just need to know what all I would have to do

first off...they would have to tuck...im not exactly sure what offset you would need...might wanna look around for info on that...secondly, stick with a verry verry low profile and skinny tire...no bigger than a 275/25...you should be able to get by without tubbing the back, but i would recommend a set of helper bags to keep the back end stiff...the front however, will most likely need a pretty decent amount of trimming, but im sure nothing major...lastly, I pray that there are nothing but glass smooth roads where you live...rough roads and dips will be your worst enemy...good luck...

P.S. I've stuck 26's on mine, but never actually owned a set...this info is just based off of what ive seen with my excab nnbs...never had to do any of this because I stuck with the 24's...

with some trimming. i see it. my 24s has huge tires. =32.40 in(305/35/24)

those 26s are 32.02 in (255/30/24).

my package is 12" section width. the 26s are 10. my offset is 30 his is higher...

infact. the stock 20s are 31.90 in so those 26s are VVVVERRRRYY close to stock 20s size...and again.. the 20s are "wider" per tire then the 26s.

BUT. the ride would suck so bad on those rubber bands. 32.02 with 26"s of rim....right around 3" of total side wall.. not counting the STREEEETCH to fit a 255/30...

Run a +40 if you can find a set that high, personally I would run a 295/30 and just trim as needed. More than likely you will cut the corner on your inner fenders and re-shape your liners.

A 275/25/26 is only 31.40 and only 20mm wider than the 255/30/26. It would actually fit the rim better and is shorter.

Thanks for the advice guys I got my 26s today and they look sick. I ended up going with a 275-25-26r because of my 4/7 drop and I did no trimming and it doesn't rub so I'm very pleased and also the new 26s ride better than my 24s that had 275-30-24r

But ive rode in lowered and stock trucks both on 24's and 26's and the rims arent forgiving...ppl on here love to lie about how great their ride quality is....
