I'm on the lookout for another set of rims (preferably to match my stock ones) for my set of studded ice/snow tires. If you see a set for a decent price, shoot me a txt!

Got the Open Country AT2 extremes on
295/70/18. They are HEAVY! Truck definitely has some sluggishness , but it's tolerable. I did notice when I was in the shop , my 5100s are not set at the top setting. Looks like there is still one rung for adjustment. I called the LES Schwabs that installed them and let them know. Now I have to go back and have them set them to the top , but that won't be for a week.

The truck looks great. Any tire rub at that size with those stock wheels? I keep going back and forth between 275/70 and 295/70.

Go 295, you'll love the look and stance. No ragrets!

I had to remove the skid plate at the tire shop just so I could drive home. It was rubbing pretty bad on it. I will trim the "wings" off the skid plate and fit it back in there today.
Other than that , no rubbing at full lock left and right. The tires are about 1/2" away from the UCAs .
Im debating if I should put spacers on or just leave it.
295 look pretty damn good on there and this morning ( according to the computer ) I was averaging 14.5 mpgs.

No Ragrets!

OK - So I called Les Schwab about the front shocks not being set to the top setting like they charged me for and my receipt says they did. The manager said they would take care of it and make it right , but ive been driving the truck around and it seems like it rides/steers fine. No rubbing at all.
Im just curious if taking it back for a 1/2" of front end lift is worth the time or just leave it alone and roll with it. Any foreseeable complications with leaving the fronts at the middle setting with the 295/70s ? Or is the top setting really the best option?

I'm on middle setting with a shim without issue.. Looking back I should have gone top setting with a shim and a shackle in the back. I'm not changing anything as I'm happy where I'm at. Are you the type that will always have this in the back of your mind?

So , i broke down and took the truck to Les Schwab today so they can set the front 5100s at the top.
Yes , it would have bugged me.
Now my next two questions are :
1 - install diff drop or not ?
2 - install Carrier Bearing spacers or not ?
