  2. Lowered tire size/clearance issues

    The tires I have are slightly bigger than factory size already. I’m running 15x7 steel wheels off an ltd with a 215/70 tire. my measurements tell me that I’ll rub, but this is 33 year old suspension with original shocks, springs, bushings, etc. so maybe it’s sagging some. surely somebody on...
