I narrowed a 9" for my "89" S10 for 16" wide Hossier slicks, the frame ended up being around 24" wide, moving each side in about 8-1/2". You have to have the wheels and tires first to see how narrow you have to go. You will also have to tub the bed depending on how much backset your wheels have. Otherwise they will be sticking out past the bedside.
