OKay so i got 6 22.5 inch rims for cheap, like 25 bucks a piece :hyper::woot:, now my question is, on a 2wd i understand im gonna need 2 inches in the front but what size tire should i run? Also i want to keep the factory stance as i pull a 40 ft gooseneck all the time and dont want the rear end to be squattin all the time so does anyone have any suggestions on that matter?

its gonna be hard to keep the factory stance due to leveling front. 22.5's are gonna raise the pickup a ways.

well, the only thing I could think of is putting a set of air bags on the rear so that you could stiffin it up when you are loaded down.. because if you put the 2 inch leveling kit on the front the truck will pretty much sit level when empty, if you add some weight to the rear you will def. be squating. You could also look into adding a set of blocks in the rear that would also lift the rear higher than the front even with the leveling kit. You will still have the factory stance, but you will just sit higher off the ground.

hey 6.7 you can get them on without the leveling. you have to do some work on the plastics in side the wheel wells and on the rear tou will have to cut the plastics all the way around the bump stops but it won't be to hard thats how mine is and you can keep the same stance it goes up about 4 inches over all look good. i have 3:73 and the rpms are allittle low i think 4:10 are probably better if you have more questions just shoot me a pm and i will answer them here

I've researched this for a while, run a 255/70R22.5. That tire is 36" tall, and all you need to do is install the 2" leveling kit on the front. Everything else WILL clear!! As far as squatting.... no way around it unless you do an add-a-leaf?
