    I plan on ordering me a set of bilstein 5100's and trying to decide if i should get 265/70's or 275/70's. What kind of gas mileage would i loose gettin 275's and would it change my speed gauge? also id like to see pics of this set up. I drive alot and want things to be good.

    I had 275s on my '06 with a 3" spacer lift and they rubbed on the mudflaps so you'll have to remove those. I also noticed a rub everytime i would go up a steep driveway, but I'm sure that had something to do with the alignment.

    Check my gallery for pics.
