i plan on gettin some 20s through jegs for 195 a piece :head:
oh there the centerline stingray 3s
well my question is how do your trucks ride and r u happy with the 20s you have i have told my parents that the 20s wont affect the ride that much cause i plan on gettin some 285/50 tires to have some side wall
any input on this would be great ASAP
thanx in advance

my 275/45/20s rode like crap... i think it was mostly the suspension though. NOw the rims and tires are on my dad's denali, and it rides a lil rougher, but not enough to want put extra padding on the seat. Its a lil stiffer i guess.

:insane: Yeah I have no complaints .. I was only goofing.

It rides as good as 255/25's can sometimes .. and sometimes is nasty .. of course the road has alot to do with it.
A good ride and feeling the bumps from a short sidwall are two different things in my book. Love my trucks ride, but bigger tires would eliminate the harshnes i sometimes get.

I can't agree more. When I had my stocks on going to Dust Off .. I rode 85 mph the whole way .... it rode great.

I can get the same on the 20's however a bad stretch of road will piss you off. It still rides good .. I just get angry cause I don't want to bend the rims not from the ride it's self.

We had to beat one of my fronts yesterday with a hammer to fix a bend on the inside. Damn thin started loseing air after well over a year of being bent.

The Centerline Stingray is a great wheel. You will enjoy them :head: They simply cannot be beat for the price (the whole Tommahawk series for that matter)

I like how my truck rides on 20s with 245/40/20 tires better than the stock tires. Maybe i'm just weird...or maybe i'm just used to sports cars, but i like the way it makesthe steering wheel feel. It rides and drives much less sloppy with short sidewalls.

my shit rides like a caddy:read: LOL. I dunno, escalades ride ok IMO. My by canti kicks my 2/4s ass. I'd get sick if i drove my truck too fast for too long before.
