I wouldn't say 70 series.

Here's my truck when I ran 235/75/15 tires:



You can tell they do not look fat like in your drift truck.

255 would might rub if you got it mashed down that far. My tall 235/75/15 would rub on the inside frame when I turned all the way to the bump stops, but they would still tuck if I hit a bump.

255/60/15 was just a guess. They looked too tall to be 50 series, but that's just my unprofessional opinion.

I like the way your truck sits there. I had seen several pics of it while i was doing my research, and trying to see what HB's looked like with different wheels. I like it. Yeah, the tire in the truck in the vid, is definitely taller than s 50 series. Could be 55, could be 60, could be 65, even looks like a 70 to me sometimes. Lol I just wish I could just ask the damn guy what tires he's running. It's ruining my life, haha

I hear ya! Won't be able to sleep until you get it figured out. Been there. It's a sickness. That's why my truck has a VG33 in it now.

Today, I'm running 18" Titan wheels with 225/55/18 tires.



They stick out just a bit and fling dirty water and mud on the truck, so I had to put some flares on the front and homemade mud flaps (not shown) on the back.

Lol. I found a set of the pro4x titans, and the reg titans, both for 200 bux. Now I'm even more confused, those look great. I love a little poke, mexiflush. I think it looks awesome. Yeah, the mudflaps are damn genius. I'm going to have some poke. Found some 17x8 soft 8 style steelies with a -12 offset for a good price, and they look great. Black and deep. Probably gonna go with a 235/55 or a 225/60, and powdercoat them bronze on my black truck. Buuuuut....now I'm thinking about those titans for $200 a set. Damnit all to hell. Whatever I get better look good or I'm gonna have a nervous breakdown...bahaha

I think I decided on a 17x8 soft 8 style wheel like in this photo

Except mine will be all black. He is running a 17x8 on the front, and a 17x9 in the rear. I will be running a square 17x8 setup.
Here is my question. These wheels are a -12 offset. I cannot find ANYWHERE a confirmed pic of anyone running a -12 offset on a D21. I like a bit of poke, but not more than an inch or two.
Anyone have an idea of how these will look? They look great in the pic, but there are so many versions of this wheel, o can't be sure what his offset is. Also, that's a HIGHLY modified truck, so who knows if it would even look the same. He's running like 700hp ls6. .

I'm also planning on 235/55r17

This is a setup I have not seen on a d21. Looking to do something different. I'm going to drop the truck with a block and cranking torsion. I just want to sit a couple inches above the tire. Is this going to be doable? I'm ready to pull the trigger on them today. I just wanted some input 1st. tia

Link for the pics here. It didn't show up for some reason

Link to the wheels

I'm looking for more of a "track" setup than a "slammed" truck. A wide stance, semi low, with a fat tire

Ikr. I like those. I can't find any locally, and the ones I found online new were 130 bux a piece. These are like 78 a piece. I already ordered them today. Theryre in the mail, we'll see how they work...
