i'm going to be doing a 3/6 drop on my 2003 RCSB Silverado sometime soon. i'm going to run the stock wheels for a awhile. i plan on getting some 20's with some Nitto 255/50/20. will these tires fit? will the be too wide in the back? what backspacing would you guys recomend to keep from rolling my fender lips?

i'm trying to get a tire size that is really close to my stock size, so my speedo will not be off. the 255/50/20 will be a little taller but only by 0.16". (stock= 29.87" overall, 255/50/20= 30.03 overall)

I'd go with a 275/45/20 it will fit a little better and it is darn close to stock.

The 275/45 will fit the 3/6 well/ You can run almost any typical 20" rim and backspacing with this tire and drop. Plus this tire size has a better selection of quality tires that you should like better IMO.

Talk to Carbondogg- he has had the same size tire with 20's and something like a 3/7 drop i think.

Werd! Chris is right. I run a 275/45/20 on mine. Here's a quick pic:

thats a custom classics... are you gonna run a roll pan before you drop your truck? most trucks come up a couples inches and that is usually why people get the extra 2 inches in the back

i'd like to drop it first, since i have most of the parts. i need to get the 3 inch drop coils, and shocks. then i need to sell my DJM 4 inch LCA. then i'd get the rollpan, and sport mirrors. then i'd have to get them all painted.

Taking off my bumber and spare tire didn't make that Big of a difference. On my 3/6 drop, it was for the better IMO

here's a pic to get an idea right after i dropped

i like that tailgate cap. is that from a new SS silverado? my stock one is just black, without the little raised part in the middle. how hard would it be to paint it to match my truck? is held on with just the stick tape, so i should be able to get it off without a problem, but where could i get some of that double sided tape that they use to stick it on with? i love the monochromatic paint jobs. i'd like for mine to be all red. i'm thinking about painting the bumper cap, the chrome bumper and the thing below the bumper, and get the grill from a new SS cause the whole thing is already painted, so no chrome stripe in the middle.
