Need feedback on wheel and tire combo

My Dad and I are building a 67 step side. It has 2 1/2" drop spindles with disc on the front and a 4 link 9 inch disc brake in the back. The rear is 55" WSM - WSM. We plan to run Coy C5 20x10 (5x4.5) with 3.5" BS mounted to 295/45R20. The fronts will be 20x8.5 (5x5) with 5.25" BS mounted to 255/40R20. The best we can measure is 73.5"from fender lip to lip. Your feedback will be most welcomed to advise us of any interference or better recommendations.

Re: Need feedback on wheel and tire combo

Just out of curiosity, why are you running 5" bolt circle front & 4 1/2" bolt circle rear? Typo?

Re: Need feedback on wheel and tire combo

I assume you have mini-tubbed the bedsides?
I like a 295/40-20 better.
Those stepside fenders are really tiny.

Your rear wheels will have 7.5" on the front side of each wheel.
(7.5" x 2 = 15" total)
Rearend 55" + 15" = 70" total width

73.5 - 70 =3.5" total
3.5" divided by 2 = 1.75" clearance to the fender lip.

You may have to run a 1" spacer to bring the wheels out a little.
Just my opinion on your numbers,...

Suspect - we have a 9 inch that has a 5x4.5 bolt pattern.

Thank you for the feed back. Does anyone have pics with coy wheels on their rides with tire sizes and drops?
