    Cool lower---What tire size?

    i have a 4x4 88 jimmy that i am going to lower by cranking the torsion bars and adding blocks . My question is i am going to put 15x7 center lines on it for now but what tire size should I go with so that i can fill the wheel wells so that it will not look funny.

    thanks:D

    A good wide tire would be a 275/60/15. It would fill it up and look good from the back or front.

    no i dont have a pic put i work at a goodyear and i tried them on my blazer and it looked good. it had a little side wall bulge, but its worth it for what it looks like. its about the biggest size for that rim is what i mean.

    On 275/60/15 tire the 275 is just the how wide the tire is. You are looking for how thick or tall the tire is. That is the 60.
    275 is way to wide of a tire if you ask me. I have 205/60/15. They fill the well pretty good and have straight side walls (no bubble). But my 4x4 is bagged and for just a 2-3" drop you should probably just go with 215/65/15
