no drop ?

Postby idiot » Sun Oct 15, 2017 10:50 am

Can't find on the chart but, can I run 15x8 w/4" bs and 275/60's on the front? I still use this for the shop truck.

Not sure on the backspacing. It will be a tight fit, I had 275's on the front of mine when I got it and they rubbed.

I had em on a 89 gmc 2500 van and they rubbed too, but i don't know the bs either.

4" bs will push them out too far on an S10 I believe

Your limiting factor is the tire size, the wheel might clear the tire will over hang that

Should be ok, I think stock tire size is about that size.

Just an update, the 15x7 steel dorito wheels are +13 offset. I found a useful site called Wheel-Size.com that has size, offset, bolt circle and other info for just about everything stock. :bowdown: and tiresize.com has an offset calculator you can compare old to new with.
