    here's my 92 4x4. i don't have it anymore, but this is with the stocker with low pro tires.


    and this is with a set of 18's mocked up. i don't remember what tire size they were though.

    yep. centerline tracers and a 3/3 drop. i never actually drove on the wheels though. i always kept the stockers on cause they were for a 2 wheel drive.

    Did you have any clearance problems running the ss wheels? I know those rims are really wide, 9.5" I believe.

    I like the vette wheels, I had a set a a 2wd blazer I use to own. I don't want to use them on my 4x4 because I want to use my 4x4. Different size rims is a big no no with 4x4.

    I am partial to 'vette wheels. They bolt right up to a 4X4. I like the Z06 style better, but wanted absolute maximum width in back (11 inch w/ 315's), and was not willing to completely sacrifice the launch (most every syty owner who went from stock 16 wheels to 17s saw an increase in their 60' times, and it's even worse with 18s). So, ZR1's is is.....

    you have 2 options... buy 4 17 inch vette wheels or remove the front cvshafts like i did...

    you can run 17 and 18's, just make sure the overall tire height is the same front and back. 17's with a larger sidewall, and 18's with a smaller sidewall. it just has to be even overall.

    that would look tardy though... like 35s in the back and 55's in the front...

    Maybe so, but that's exactly (well, 40's in front, not 55's) what the Z06 Vette runs:
    Rear tire 295 35 18 / Front tire 265 40 17

    Threy're within 3% of each other in rolling radius, marginal match but several SyTy folks are running this combo. Looks great, but launch grip is poor.
