Pictures showing 305-50-20 tires. The truck is stock, no lift, no turns on bars. Also, spare fits with bigger rearend cover. Emergency brake cable is tie wrapped back, thanks to you guys. I used a hair dryer to reshape the plactic in the wheel wells. Things are close but due clear.
Wheels are Pacer Juice 20 X 9.5 as on the sites.

The picture of the air dam trim, the tie wrapped cable, and the 305-50-20 as a spare have the stock wheels on the ground.

What is the backspacing on those wheels?
Do they stick out much in the front?

Offset is 10mm ??? per the website. The truck looks much better with the wheels, even better after I washed it. I only have about 400 miles on this set up but it looks like I lost 2 MPG highway, guessing because Speedo is off by 7% or so. They work very well in sugar sand. I don't think it would be good in mud or snow due to the street tread. No snow problems here, mud is by choice. Has not rained yet.

The drop looks good, how much drop? What are you doing for a spare? I tried putting a 305/50/20 up under as a spare. It looks bad from the back and makes a $600 spare. I may try a LT235/85/16. I think the diameter is close and should not look like a sideways tire under my bumper. Did you loose MPG? I gained with an intake and lost with the wheels.

shackles were 2" but when measured with a tape it showed 3"

i gained with a performance computer and Filter, lost with the wheels.


as for a spare i keep the stock one... in the event of a flat i will just put it on a front and drive slow.

Looks great also
Is the pic taken before or after the drop?It doesn`t seem to sit level in the picture or did you drop the front also.

Do you have any pics showing how much the front wheels stick out?

arista5,
that looks REALLY good! I have a set of drop shackles, but havent installed them yet.....from McGaughys. Its a 2" drop to level out the stance. What kind of backspacing are you running?

the Panther Juice 8's in the 20x 9.5 only have one B/S i tried to get a offset to allow them to sit even but they dont,




that is the only pic i have showing an angle, however it doesnt stick out any farther than the front mud guard.

My 20 inch Panther Juice wheels are defective, I believe, on my 2500 HD and wonder if anyone else has had this problem. My rims are turning inside the tires. We marked the wheels with indelible chalk and the tires on the inside. After a few days of driving the wheels become out of balance because the rims are turning inside the tires. I cannot get any satisfaction out of the dealer who sold me the wheels. He is trying to say that it is improper installation of wheels and tires. We have now broke them down and cleaned the beads and reinstalled with just water instead of bead sealer. Still sliding and I am at a loss. Any feedback would be appreciated.
