FINALY!!! got me some 20s... got a killer deal on em, great nitto tires, got a good deal, and now ive found out the rear tires hit the bed when i hit a bump... theres only about an inch of travel room before the tire hits the fender. i dont know if i wanna ditch the idea and givem back to the guy, cut the lip on the finder, or bend the lip... any suggestion?!

Looks like boss wheels right.. What size tire you running? Those look like nitto 420s tires, im going to guess 265/50r20. Looks good though. give us some more info on the step. I think you shoudl keep the rims and tires and adjust the drop.

That truck is low. I like the stance though.

loosen the bed bolts and try shifting it to get it centered... I have had to do this before.

Are you sure the wheels have the same backspacing? Swap sides and see if it looks the same.

thats pretty normal on the low static drops. gm offsets the rearends to to right for some stupid reason. you can try loosening the u-bolts and make sure the rear is seated all the way on the leaf pins. i've seen that fix in before.
