Any specific reason you went down in size?

Id guess not only money, but I'd say it handles alot better as well havin less rubber to roll/sway. I went with a 255/50/16 on my S-10 with Iroc wheels and it was on rails. You could come into a long corner flying and hold it to the floor all the way around with ease. I bet that truck would look sweet if you dropped it a couple inches


HA! HA! I'm a supporting member and you're not!

Handling/Accelartion/ and MPG's. Could see a dyno gain with these one too. Also a few more inches of drop.

I need to drop it a little more, but something towards the motor will come first.

Cause it would be so cool to have to trucks with 4 inches of lift both F150's and both two wheel drive. I'd probably have every chick in town

This is my first lowered truck and its my favorite. Its all good dude, you probably never owned one. You have no idea.

What do you mean in FL but not in Nebraska, I guess Nebraska doesnt have S10's, its not like im scraping the ground. Yeah I cant use a bottle jack on my truck but its still higher than most S10's and cars. See it how you feel it, I dont care. Cause I guess being like every other redneck and haveing a lifted truck is "cool".

LOL...calm down, I see I hit a nerve. Yes we have S-10's and Rangers, I guess I was thinking lower than that. No I have not owned one..AND I DON'T WANT TO!! Here we have lifts, and all rednecks do not, so I guess you need to keep digging for puns and put downs. Like I said, I don't care either way if you lower it, they do look different of course when lowered, some look good and others make me laugh. This redneck is done with the topic..you are becoming nasty and I will not have part of that. People have their opinions and we need to respect them either way, and I do respect your choice of lowering your ride, I'm sure you work hard and part of the reward for that is to have things you want. Take care and have a good evening. Your buddy Pete!
