What size tire are guys running with a 2" drop spindle? I'm thinking 235/60/14 or 225/60/14. I have a different spring setup than most,so I'm just getting some ideas on this. Thanks...

Your wheel backspacing has an effect on this. I had a 215x70r14 tire on a wheel with 4.5" BS and the tire was too close to the tie rod end. It would actually rub around turns. But with less BS I would have been fine with this tire. There are a few variables other than just tire width. Keep looking around on this site. There is a lot of info to help you out.

Thanks, I'm going to a tire shop that sells used tires to see what they have.Figure if I don't like the size I get, I won't be out much. Also they would be a little more likely to swap them out if they don't fit right....

I'm running a 235/45-17 on 8 inch rims with 2 inch drop springs. Some of the drop spindles have clearance issues with wide rims.
