Those look great. I went with the OE Creations in a 24 with the lowering springs.
What do you think of the slight rake look? Thinking of adding a 1/2” spacer to the front spring to bring it up a notch.

Hi Dave
I really like the look. It’s exactly what I’m looking to achieve. Could you let me know:
model of OE creations those are ?
what size of wheel ?
what tires you put on ?
Dimensions of tires ?
Are you happy with the tires ?

Hi and thank you. The style of wheel is called the Honeycomb and these are 24”. Tires are a 295/35/24. The current tires are Nitto NT420V and I like them a lot. I had Falken Ziex before these but I think these are better in the rain. Either of those tires are good. Don’t waste your money on cheap ones. The Falkens had 30,000 miles on them and could have got another 30 more but unfortunately I shredded two of them in a pothole…. Buy something with a treadwear rating in the mid 400s and you should get 50-60 thousand miles out of them.

Hey Dave...we're they able to get your alignment back once you lowered yours. The guys at Belle Tire are telling me my cams are maxed out and I'm still at -2 degrees camber (top of wheels leaning in) Yours look pretty good.
I was slightly out of the “green” in front, but just slightly where he said it was fine. Don’t remember exactly but I know it wasn’t all the way to factory but close enough. I rotate tires every oil change and have never had any irregular tread ware. There is a slight camber from factory I believe.

26" Strada Osso on 305/30/26 tires. No rubbing at all, clears easily. Just waiting on my date to get her lowered.

Assuming you have had it lowered by now since your post date, any issues with rubbing after? I have a 2/3 Belltech lowering strut setup and went with 22x9.5 wheels on my stock tires and I seem to be clicking or clacking against something. Seems to be on the driver side when backing up and turning, but hasn't been long enough for any apparent marks to show. Assuming it's catching my fender liner somewhere, but not sure.

Thanks, factory spec is neg .8 to neg 1.4 and I'm neg 2 and it's def noticeable. How's your compare to this? I'm not as worried as much about wear as I am I don't like the look.

My drop in the front needed to be adjusted cause it wasn't getting full 2" drop. They had to tear the front end apart again,(Belltechs instructions they sent were incorrect on what rings to put in, that's a whole different story) so a realignment was needed. Here is what they got me at, the only thing that didn't line up perfect was my right front caste is slightly out of range.

Thanks, that's what I was trying to get them to do was up my caster to get me some camber back. But the guys were arguing with me. I think if I got my caster closer to yours it'd gain some camber back. After I lowered it they really didn't correct any camber. Said my cams were maxed out but I'm sure he could make other adjustments. Here is my print out..also do you mind taking a pic straight on like i took so I can see the difference between your neg 1.6 and my neg 2.0?

Yeah for sure, I'll try and post it in good lighting too. I was a tad worried about the caster being out of range and called Network Alignment, they are the best in town in my opinion, and ran it by them. Dude over the phone said 5.6 and 5.9 was solid and that lower 5.6 on the left side would help with keeping the truck straighter while driving cause it helps compensate for the road pitch.

Also noticed yours is a 4x4, may have something to do with the difference with mine being a 2 wheel.

@RLong24 doesn't seem much different from yours honestly.

Thanks, appreciate you doing all that. Yeah I guess not a lot different. Would still like to get it a little closer to yours. I think with the flat sidewall and bigger wheel it just sticks out to me. Especially looking at it from like 45 degree angle. Either way still better than the giant wheel gap it had...lol

No problem! I stayed with 22" but went to a 9.5 width and keep my stock tires which helped get rid of the side wall puff as well. Definitely looks better with a smaller wheel gap! Assuming by the scenery in your pick you aren't in Arizona, not sure who to recommend to you for a better alignment experience, but maybe check in with your preferred dealer.

I know of a place thats good but they can't do my 24s..think I might throw the factory 22s back on the front for the alignment and see if they can get it better. Then just switch them back.
