Postby Isuzunoob27 » Fri Dec 14, 2018 11:20 am

Hello everyone an sorry if this is already talked about. I’m new here an would like some help. So I’ve had this isuzu for about 8 years now, an im turning it into a project now. It’s coming along . I have wheel spacers on right now at the moment an I’m not sure if there is a lift or not. Doesent seem to look stock. What I would like to know is what size tires an rims should I get. I’m looking for the look of fat an beefy an stick out rather then wheel spacers. Lol the spacers kinda sketchy me out I have s 1993 isuzu ls I believe here is a pic of my project

Hahahah yes sir then I’ll use bondo. Not sure if I’m just going to bondo it or fiberglass it with the fenders brackets an take them off the original fenders Making my own. Does that make sense. Haha an then I’ll hollow out all the foam I’m in the process of shaping right now But I’m not sure what it is called FPS style I think ? Aftermarket lower control arms an upper making them stick out more along with a longer tie rod. But for now I was just thinking about getting some rims with a back set I think it what it’s called of like idk 6 inches pretty much make the damn thing look like a long board hahah skate bored

Well, the blue paint definitely makes it look sporty. But, I would stay away from that large of a spacer too. That's a lot of extra force on the ball joints and tie rods.

I’ll have new shocks soon. An yea I don’t want those huge spacers that’s why I made this post to see if anyone could tell me what I should get an where to get it hold on let me post pics of what I’m talking about

Here's a good article to get you started: http://www.fourwheeler.com/how-to/wheel ... etiquette/
If you need more information, do a google search on "wheel offset". There's a lot of information out there to make an informed decision.

The suspension system on the grey one is what I’m trying to achieve

While you might be able to achieve the "look", you won't be able to achieve the actual suspension. The picture you have posted is of a truck with a coil over suspension, which can allow for lots of travel. Our Isuzus have a torsion bar suspension system that is somewhat limited. They are very capable 4X4 vehicles, but they will never be a trophy truck or desert racer. Then again, I guess anything is possible. The question you need to ask yourself is, how much do I want to spend?

Where do you find a set of rims for a 1994 trooper that increase the width like a very large spacer that does not break the bank. In the old days I think they were called deep dish.
