I can't do any photoshop work, but I know that you will have problems with that tire size rubbing on the front inner fenders and you WILL have to roll your rear ones...

Run a 40 series and you should be ok. From what I've been told you have to run a really lo-pro tire with anything that doesnt have the right backspacing to tuck with a bigger tire.

A buddy of mine just installed his 4/6 on his 02...then a couple days later he went and bought some 20x8.5" wheels with 275/45 goodyear tires...he didn't talk to me or anyone else before he did this..the tires rubbed really bad in the rear...he cut the fenders and problem solved...but the fronts rub the inner fender and the outer fender pretty good on most med to large bumps...his wheel offset is 5 or 5.5" which is about the same as the SS wheels. I'd definately consider a lower series tire like a 245/40 or 255/35

If you didn't want to go with such a small tire, maybe a 255/45-20 .. I think Toyo makes them in this size, I think Vicred runs that size tire as well.

Sell your SS rims for some Boyd's :read: That way you can get a custom offset and run whatever tire you want.

i got an 03 sierra with stock rims and tires (255/70) and they rub pretty good when i turn and hit a bump, sux but its still driveable, that probably don't help you much having the ss rims and all though....
