Tire Help

wow I haven't been on here in a wile! so my truck is going under the knife next week to finally have the 4/6 drop installed, but I need new tires and I don't know what size to go with . I was thinking a 265 50 20 or a 295 45 20 or maybe even staggering them but I'm not sure if they will fit. so I came to the hemi truck pro's for help. thank you

Whats up Pitbull Greg? Not sure on the tire sizes. I'm not dropped.

Palmetto? I'm just up 75 from you in Brandon. Almost like neighbors.

Give me a shout if you ever come up this way.

That's why I ask because I can do a 295 45 in the rear and a 265 50 up front same overall hight or I could just help it simple and go with the 265 50

I like the staggered style Greg.
That combo works as long as you can live with not rotating the tires for a longer tire life.
