Tire Size On 4/6 Drop

Recommended Posts

i have an 01 silverado with a 4/6 drop and i am wondering what the biggest tire size i could run without rubbing. i am going to get the black rhino, zambia or kenya wheels specs are 20 by 9.

thanks in advance gentlemen.

I would also guess 275/45-20's, but that is a guess. With a drop that severe nothing can be recommended without knowing exactly what the rim offset/backspacing is - what is the rim backspacing?

PS - you might ask Retired99, he may remember the tire sizes he used on the '00 single cab project, I think that had a 4" drop in front.

thank you gentlemen...i believe 275/45 is about right i believe that what a buddy of mine has on his truck same drop. i just wanted to know if i could go a little bigger or wider. the offset i believe is 20mm

I tried 275/45/20 on my 5/7 drop and the front wheels wouldn't turn in the fenders but at 4/6 they probably would have cleared. I now run a 275/40/20 on the stock SS wheel.

 

This tool will probably help you as you can see how tall your tire is getting.
