Hey guys, i've been running 305/65r17's on 17X9 inch procomps w/ 4.5" backspacing, my tires are shot and i'm looking at lowering my truck down about 2" lower than stock and getting smaller tires to get some mileage and gearing back for all the city driving i do, anyone have some good suggestions on tires sizes for a setup like that?
