A 2/4 lowering kit and 295/35/24 tires will work fine. 305/35 should be ok too..

A 2/4 drop sits nicely over 24s. Any more and you'd have to start look at notching the frame and rolling fenders I think.

Im going with the 4/6 Drop, 26"x10" with a 295/30/26. And in my case fender liners have to be removed and fenders do need to be rolled.

Agreed, 4/6 is what I'd do, and stay 30' diam total and try to not go much wider than OEM.... remember BS on the wheels... its all a matter of mms and using them all to your advantage. I put 20x8.5s on my old 3" lowered Jetta w/o cutting or rubbing...24" on a full size thats lowered?! nothing to it.

4/6 drop would be nice, but yep theres going to be some body mods to fit some 24s. I think the 2/4 drop would be a great look! Well cant wait to see some pics of it when its done!! Going to look great man!

You too Miami thats going to look sweet as well!
