This is my first lift and wheel/tire swap, be gentle with me. I have read tons of threads regarding this topic and still need help.
I will have 16 x 8 wheels with 4.5 BS. I WANT 285/75/16 tires to wrap them in. My budget isn't looking too hot right now, so I'm guessing I'll have to save up some more...
1. Stock Suspension + 16 x 8 Wheels 4.5 BS + 265/75/16 AT Tires = Playing it safe
2. Bilstien 5100s @ 2.5" with AAL + 16 x 8 Wheels 4.5 BS + 285/75/16 AT Tires + Dremel work + no UCA replacement = You wish buddy
3. OME for 3" with AAL + 16 x 8 Wheels 4.5 BS + 285/75/16 AT Tires + UCA's + Dremel work = Good to go
4. Spindle Lift for 4" with AAL + 16 x 8 Wheels 4.5 BS + 285/75/16 AT Tires = GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
Currently, my plan is #1, until I can save up.
I was hoping #2 would work however. I believe SilverTacoZack and Se7en both fit 285/60/18 on stock suspension with dremel work. With the same backspace, 285/75/16's are 35mm's taller than 285/60/18's (18x9), so wouldn't 5100's give me the room I need? Please correct me if I'm wrong. A big thank you in advance.
