Ya spindle lift is a great way to lift a 2wd but you might have to have certain wheels the website should say

I'm wanting to put some new wheels and tires on it as well as a new exhaust, I'm also putting a 3 inch suspension lift on it. My question is, is what size wheel do I need, as well as tire? Thanks
I wear 32's my self but without a lift right now when I get my lift i'm probly moving up to 33's, spindle lift is the way to got 2wd. doesn't hurt suspension like they said.

I'm going with that lift. I'm going to go ahead and get 33s. I'm not sure what size wheel I wan though. 17,18, or 20.

I personally think bigger rims and thin tires are derp.. I wouldn't get anything bigger than 17, with 33's you might look good in 18's but that's just me.

X2 18s might pull it off but 20s can barely bull off 35s.

I'd go 17, even consider 16.

Yeah 17 is probably what I'm going with. They're cheaper too!

yup, gotta love paying more for less rubber..

these trucks look real nice with a 16-17 rim and aggressive somewhat oversize rubber. should turn out real nice. what kinda rim are you looking into?

Either the M/T classics, or some pro comps. I don't know what my trucks bolt pattern is though, how do I find that out? I think I read on a part of the forum it's 5x135?
