i'm about to drop my truck 3/6, so now i'm thinking about what wheels and tires i want to get.

for wheels, i'm looking at either some Centerline Rapids 20 x 8 with 5" of BS or some American Racing Torq Thrust ST 20 x 8.5 with 5.5" of BS. the Centerlines weight 23ibs, does anybody know how much the AR Torq Thurst weight?

for tires, i want to use the Toyo Proxie S/T's 255/45/20. accoording to there web site they are 29.6" tall and 10.1" wide. my stuck tires are 235/75/16 which are 29.8" tall and 9.2" wide, according to the Goodyear web site. i'm trying to keep it close to the same overall diameter so my speedo, and odometer will be right, cause i dont have the money to get the computer reflashed.

so, will these work on my 2003 Silverado lower 3/6 with new coils in the front and a flip kit in the back? i really dont want to roll the fender lip, but i will to run the Centerlines.

You shouldn't have any problems with that setup. It might be close on one side of the back...i didn't have any rubbing issues until I went down to an 8" drop out back :)

8" drop? :insane: you're static? WTF is your front drop and how'd you get it?
I'm fully bagged now (wheels still work fine with rolling of the rear fender lips by the way)

I got my wheels when i had a 4/6, no rubbing issues at all on a 245/40/20 tire) Then i went to a 4/8 (had to slightly roll one of my rear fenderlips as my axle was slightly shifted to the passengerside). Now i'm bagged all around and couldn't be happier :) I can drive with my rear almost on the ground without any rubbing on my setup as well.

Dude, just roll the fender lips and get whichever of those wheels you like the best... it'll work just fine.

Even with the Toyo's, you probably won't really have to roll the lips... i'd just do it for assurance.
