About to make the purchase of new tires, rims, 3inch body lift, and the daytar leveling kit. Anyone have pics running 305's??? I know everyone says to go bigger on the tires, my only concern is mpg. I have even consider 285's to save on gas. Wanted to see what the 305's looked like on. THX all.

Not 305s, but 315s...almost.



You'd probably look similar. I always liked the look of stuffed fender wells, not the huge lift and little tires...:imo

when you lift your truck

you defintally do not expect to get good gas mileage? haha

driving style affects more mpg than a jump up in 2-3 tire sizes

My truck is a stock 1500 4x4, torsion bars cranked an inch max. With 4" of lift on a 2500HD you can clear 35's easily depending on the backspacing of your wheels and the tire width. Do a search for CaliHD, he has some pictures of his 2500 with a 4" CST spindle, looks great :imo

Right now they don't rub, but I plan on running 305's next so I imagine I may have to trim the inner plastic a little bit...
