Looking at new Vintage tires . . .

Not sure which size tires i should go with, G78-15's 28.5" tall or 7.00-15's 30" tall.

G78-15:

7.00-15:

I'm going to go with one of the 2 tires for sure as i love the tread design but i am unsure of which size would fit best, but i plan to mount them up on some nice polished wheel's should look very killer, i don't drive far so even tho there biasply they should wear decent and last a number of years.

No lift then?

Maybe the 28.5's might be the best bet.

I like these!

Mainly for aesthetics & tire clearance to get the "look" you might want.

Many newer trucks (2WD) have "leveling kits" to lift the front & make the truck sit slightly higher.

Altering ride height (up & down) on all kinds of vehicles is nothing new.

what would on need to do to fit the 7.00-15's aka 30's ? . . . Is there an easy way to cheat the extra 1" of the suspension ?

they'll more then likely clear now but and extra .75"-1.25" of clearance wouldn't hurt none

Look for kits/parts like these. Spring spacers for the front coils & shackles for the rear leaf springs.
