alhough i dont agree with the V8, i commend you with your efforts and keeping another REPU on the road. would be great to match that picture. i have the same one stored on my computer. i dont know how realistic it is but i am also trying to make my truck look like the sketch. good luck with the build, i will keep a close eye on this thread and copy you with the exception of the V8
wow a fellow repu owner awesome! any chance i can see your truck? and i know the proportions are off in the sketch but the overall stance and details are easily repeatable. i di some measurments and the rims in the sketch would be 18inch with a 35 sidewall which is hugggggeeeee! ill probably go with 16x10 in the rear with a 55 sidewall just because i dont want cracked rims lol. hope to see your truck and share tips, thanks for commenting.
Fronts are 17x8 ET 30 w/ 215/40 and rears are 17x9 ET 25 w/ 225/45. I have a ford 8.8 rear end in it, so the offsets may or may not work with your truck. I would have preferred the rears to stick out a bit further than they do but I was guessing when I bought my wheels . I may go with a 9.5 in the rear but not for now. Truck is sitting pretty high right now due to newly installed bushings, tie rod ends, etc etc…. If the suspension does not settle once I start driving it, I will lower it.
I agree with you, this truck should have 16-17” wheels max. I think 18’s are too big, but that is just my opinion.
