take the hub spacers out of the front and put your classic II's on there, and get a spacer for the back wheels, ask HCCUMMINSSMOKE, he has a awsome set up on his truck

You want large tires n bigger wheels I suggest 19.5s !

Below in my sig there is a link for 19.5 conversion check it out look at some of the trucks...

Tho his prices are a bit high if your interested I'm sure I can find stuff much cheaper I know I did for my trucks.
