I planned on running 18s up front anyway but also considering some 15 steelies sometime. On the rear end I have a 8.8 Ford explorer. I want to put 20s on the back, 8 inches wide. I did some quick calculatons and figured a 20x8 with 3 inch backspacing should fit. i cannot find any decent rims in that size, or am I just not looking hard enough? Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks
I have a 33 ford with 2" dropped spindles, and Mustang Road racing springs that lower it another 1 1/2" I couldn't get 17" wheels on it if I wanted. On the P/U you should have a lot of room in that fender, it's how close to the fender is the wheel and tire so you can turn, how much of the fender is going to be over the tire. you have to know what size tire you will run, half of the total will be below the spindle, half above, as long as you don't hit the fender with the outer edge of the tire, or hit it when you turn your fine there. then you just make sure when the tire goes up and down you don't hit the top of the fender, but I don't see that happening.
