Default Question about tires and drop
What's up guys I'm new to the forum, I have a 00 ram I just put a set of 22s on. I have order a 3/5 drop kit but I'm not sure i will be able to run my current tires with it. The rims are boss 335 22" with 5.75bs and +20mm offset with 305/40/22 tires. Will they be on with the drop or will they rub? Any input would be greatly appreciated!

Off topic, but is your son just trying to squeeze behind the truck, or is he pissing on the garage door? hahahaha.

Back on topic, The Boss 335's have a high offset which should clear after the drop. The tire is a little big for a 3/5, but it is going to be very close.

3/5 is the way to go. 2/4 just doesn't settle down a Gen II enough (Been there, done that!)

It certainly sounds like an awful lot of tire to cram under there. I want to say this was on 275/45R20s and I had slight rubbing issues in the rear.

Is the 3/5 Springs / Flip kit? That's what I ran for a while on my '99. Loved it!
