I'd stick with the same wheels that you have and just enjoy that. Looks good like that.

Ehh, aside from the caprice wheels you're just showing pepboys specials. I'd stick with the current setup, looks the best IMO.

These aren't bad either, but the black with the wide tires looks legit.

OHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH. Yea, 275's with the 255's. I like overly aggressively wide tires.

what makes me hesitant is the fact that new 255s and 275s is gonna be about 650 out the door.

i found a kid in lisle that has some 235/75(stock size) goodyear wranglers that are supposedly in decent shape for cheap. i think ill get those to pop on the extra 9c1 wheels i have, then continue the hunt for 275s and 255s on craiglist for the 15x8 truck rallys that are being powder coated right now.

You can't beat a 275/60 - 15 for your truck on a 15×8 wheel.

Now, on my 94 I did run 295/50 - 15 on a stock 15x10 chevy rallye wheel and loved it. I ran cooper cobra Radial GT's.

And on my '92 1500 v6 5spd I ran the 275/60 - 15 Cobra GT's and loved the ride. I also install a stock g80 which helped lol

The '92, loved that truck. Had 192,000 miles on it when I sold it to my cokehead boss who fucked me out of $900.
