Default 3" Leveling Kit? What size tires can i fit?

I know there are alot of threads about leveling kits but i cant seem to find what i need???? i have a 2004 xlt SCREW 2wD... i recently bought HBS's 3" leveling kit. I havent installed them yet waitin til i get some new tires.. Can i fit 325/60/18 with that 3" lev. kit?

I'm glad I spent the time to make this thread and sticky it for people to totally ignore it.

3" kits cause way to much stress on the front end and it's components. Most people stay with kits that are smaller than 2.5 inches because of that reason.

There are many people on this forum who have been there, done this and regretted it later. I would heed their warning but ultimately it is your truck. Yes the .5 makes a big difference.

I have 315/70/17 BFG all terrains on an 06 STX 2wd with a 3 in leveling kit. It rubs a little but that doesnt bother me. I would go with the BFG all terrains. they last longer and are more aggressive. The 325/60/18 may rub a little because of the width. but you could run either one of those sizes.

well he has a 2wd so there is less stress involved as far as the cvs being at weird angles.
