    WHaT Do I Do?!?...

    Ok a big ass change of plans with the BLaZeR of mine thats under construction has happened...And what that is instead of the S10 wheels goin on it.. im gettin some either Weld Rodlites or DragLites.. And so sense its gonna be 4.3'd im gonna use a bigger tire on the back.. Something like a 235/70.. and with 215/60 up front.. So i gotta 3/4 drop...So what can i do to make it set almost back level with those bigger tires on the back.. Without having to buy anymore lowering Shit?...

    You didn't say what size of rim you were gonna run but I use to run a 255/40/17 in the rear and a 225/45/17 in the frt. The rolling diameter of the wheels was almost the same and did not cause any rake in the truck. If you runn a higher profile on a narrower tire in the frt you should be able to match up rolling diameters. I hope I am makin sense :D

    Most likely 15" because he said they were going to be rodlites or draglites.

    I've got 15x6 & 15x8 dragstars on my blaze now with 205/60/15 and 245/60/15 tires.

    im probably gonna run sense im gettin Rodlites so the tires will fit under the rear fenders go with a set of 15x7 rims.. i could use 15x8's on the back but then id have to get wider back spacing.. But on the back im going with 235 or maybe 245/70's then 215/60's up front.. And all im needing to know sense i got the 3/4 Belltech drop.. how i can lower the back a little more with the kit i got without having to buy any other lowering stuff..

    Yes the bagged one.

    If you have 4" blocks take a leaf out.
