Smile 17" wheels and tires

Hey, i'm looking at getting some 17" wheels for my 72 gmc. I am not sure whay size tires to go with. The truck is lowered 3" in the front and 5" in the rear. Thinking of 275 60 17 and 255-60-17's anyone have pictures or suggestions. Thanks Jeff

What offset are on your wheels. I am thinking of putting 18 on mine but dont know if to go with a 0 offset or a negative offset

Re: 17" wheels and tires

I would personally go with 50 series tires in those widths. I have a 3.5/5drop with 255/275 60's (same as 50 series 17's) andthe fendergap is great
