    Hello I’m new to this forum. I just purchased a 87 Chevy suburban r20 with airbags.
    I have the original rims which are 8lug on and I need to ride it at normal ride height otherwise the front end will rub.
    Any suggestions for a rim set up that I can ride the vehicle at a lower ride heigh and still be able to turn left and right without rubbing.
    Thanks, Pete

    You probably just need a shorter tire, usually somewhere around a 27" overall height work for anything dropped 4" or more in the front. If they are 16" rims something like a 235/60 should work
