    Wheel question with 4/6 drop

    Here is my delima. I currently have on all 4's, MB Precise 20X10 wheels with -25 offset, wraped in 295/40-20's. I have a 4/6 drop on my 2wd 04 silverado. The front tires rub pretty easy on bumps and it sucks. I'm trying to figure out if I order the same wheel but 20X8.5 with +18 offset (5.5 back spacing)and run 275/45-20's, will I have rubbing issues? I'm thinking it should work. What are all of your thoughts on this? This is the only option I have on ordering the same style wheel (just the 2 fronts, the rears are fine). I have a post on here related to this, but with a differnt option that I have since nixed. Thanks in advance

    If you do the positive 18, won't you be able to keep tue 295's? Or is it running the back side of the fender when you turn?

    Not keeping the 295's up front, not if I get the 20X8.5 rims. I think the 295/40's might be a bit wide for a 8.5" wide wheel, so I figured I would buy 275/45 for the front. No rubbing on the inside of wheel well with current set up. So going from 295/40's to 275/45's.

    Oh cool, I will look into that. Thanks I can turn a wrench, but not sure about body work, but will check it out.

    If you can use a grinder and a hammer. You are good to go. It's just your inner finder. Nothing that you see or could see if you are tucking tire any way.

    Well after looking at it, I don't think I want to do that. I don't trust myself in cutting metal off my truck in that way. I have a grinder, and use it, but not on body panels. Thanks for the info though

    Those are +25 offset correct? If I ran a 20X8.5 with a 275/45-20 it would be 1.2" taller then your setup. Think it would work?
