So you can see by my previous postings I just purchased a 620 this past weekend.
I was trying to make a big decision on wheels/rims and tires. HOWEVER, my stock 4 wheel drum brakes suck a bag of dongers. I am 100% gonna do Beebani’s 4 wheel disc brake conversion, plus lower the truck to a slam height. Since the disc brake conversion will allow 15” inchers and up, I gotta get some rims/wheels going. I’m running stock suspension right now, with no mods on bushings, torsion etc.
Question: What wheels/rims you guys running (offset), or what will fit or sample set-ups you guys wheeling? I’d like them to tuck and I’d like to stay 6 luggers, ideas?

That orange 620 is tits. Anyone know if that truck is on here? (fingers crossed) As for the wheels, stay away from titans. So many 620's w/ titans. Kick a dead horse... Or be original. "Free thinkers are dangerous!"

Sick620, I noticed you have 4 wheel disc's. Did you use Beebani's brackets? Or you running something else? Also, if you're using Beebani's how'd the tires and wheels fit (what sizes you running?) Thanks, T—

So I've upgraded some with some Frontier rims/wheels. I'm really wishing I would have gone with bigger meats. However, I plan on lowering 2"-3"... So I'm taking opinions, do these tires seem like lawnmower tires? They are: 195/60's 15"s. I'm thinking I should have gone with 205/60's? I'm not running ANY spacers, so it's a bit close in the back (to the leaf-spring). But I have 1" or so?? So should I go with bigger meats?
