HEY man, i got a question for u:

my truck is a 2001 chevy silverado. i got a 2/4 drop on it.
Im planning to get a set of 22's, with 265/40/22 tires, do you think they will rub? or can i fit them in??

Hi Luis. Well, it's a little more complicated than it might seem. A lot depends on the offset of the wheel, as well as the size and even the brand of tire. I'd ask the shop if they've done similar installations (i.e. similar truck, similar tires/wheels) and if they've had any customers complain about rubbing. Generally-speaking, the GM fullsize trucks have pretty large wheel wells, but when you start lowering and getting above 20 inches, that changes the equation somewhat. Hope this helps.
