Bilstein 5100ís all around.
Ride height is set on the middle setting which provides around 1.5Ē lift in the front.

The rearís are not adjustable so itís at factory height.

The middle setting is not really enough to be called ďleveledĒ and still provides a touch of rake.

Stock tires still. Hopefully thatíll change soon!

I’m considering the 5100s for the front for now. Down the road, if I want to put the 6112s up front I could move the 5100s to the rear.

EDIT: For anyone else reading this later, see the next post.

Nope.
The fronts are totally different from the rears.

Definitely 5100s. I'd say use the middle setting and leave the rear alone.

If you want 35s on stock rims, 295/70s (which are ~34.3") or 285/75s (which are ~34.8") are your best bet. Shop for good deals.

@rruff thanks for the info, tires you would recommend for a "road princess" or whatever folks want to call it on here?

in 295/70r18, Michelin LTX M/S... Excellent performance, longevity, and MPG. In the big sizes they are pretty cheap compared to competitors.

Looks like you just missed the Discount Tire Direct ebay sale though. They might still be your best bet.

Yeah I have had those for many years- was hoping to get something a bit more aggressive...

The Michelins will be better in every way on the road, but if you don't mind more noise and more gas $$$, here are other options.

Generally the more "aggressive" they look the more on road compromises you'll make.

Oh ya forgot to specify tire brand/type

I'd either looking at BFG KO2 (not available in 285/70/18) or Nitto Ridge Grappler.

@Mickleford @rruff it's too bad they don't make the BFG KO2 in 285/70/18 as I am trying to avoid trimming... I assume 295/70/18 would need substantial trimming?

No, not with stock wheels and offset. You may need to remove mudflaps, and I'm pretty sure you'll need to bend the skid plate in the front. That's like 10 sec with some channel locks.

I don't think you'll be sorry about going big, but you may be sorry if you get gnarly off road tires for driving on the street. At least I'd be sorry.
