Anybody running 285/50/20's with a 2/4 drop?? I want to drop my truck soooo bad. But think I am gonna have to resort to a 1/3 drop because of my tire size. Cant remember if I asked this before! Ive seen a few pictures, one including an 03 Rado with a 3/4 drop and 275/55/20's and one of an 02 Rado with 285/50/20's with a 2/4. Will I have issues? From what I have seen I think it will be ok. But I may need to notch!

Thanks in advance for the help and info!

i had 285/50s with a 3/5. the back will be perfectly fine. The front you will rub so if you put the 3 in the front see if you could put some spring spacers in there cuz it only rubbed on turns, and my wheels are chrome with no custom offset to fit my truck right.you could DEFINETLY go with the 5 in the back i have done it but the front will have to be a little less than 3 to get it comfortable and more easily drivable. maybe just get some 2" spindles for the front and get the 5" kit for the back. It looked great. those big tires make it look a lot lower that it really is cuz there is like NO wheel gap. sorry i dont have any pics of it like that, but the 5" in the rear will work and just go with like a 2" spindle in the front you will be set.

1truess has those tires. it looks badass on his truck. pm him
I thought 1True had 18's on his truck.

Id really like to try a 2/4. If it will just rub on really tight turns I could probably live with that.
