Re: Show your 275/60/15 tires

I think you PM'd me about my setup a few days ago, but just in case that wasn't you, here's mine:

2/4 drop with 255/60/15 tires up front. Wheels are both 15x10.

Re: Show your 275/60/15 tires

275/60/15s with a 5" flip kit on the back and 245/60/15s with 2.5" coils and 2" springs on the front. The side shot is when I had 275s on the front with cut coils.

I have a question for you. With the 2/4 drop do you carry any heavy loads? Any problems with it bottoming out the springs? Did you stiffen the springs or use bags? I like the look of the 2/4 drop but still want to be able to haul a load or tow. Thanks!
