    Unless you measured and that’s how you know, you can’t even tell by pic alone.

    I suppose an ome 884 would get me even? I measured my center cap to underside of fenders and front is 21”+or- and “22+or- in the rear.

    And yes, my 5100s are set on the lowest notch providing 1.75” of lift up front. If you go to headstrong off-road and look at the coils, there should be a coil guide and it will tell you how much you’ll get with each coil on different settings with the 5100s. You can also contact Marie via Headstrong off-road on here and she will get you taken care of. She answered all of my questions and concerns.

    Oh I have lol. But nothing like seeing images.

    Is your ride noticeably different as opposed to stock ?

    Thanx in advance for answering my questions.

    Yes, I think it rides a lot better up front. Tested it out going over big speed bumps and it was like driving over a cloud ha. I’m very happy with how they ride and can’t wait to get the rears on.

    How long do you anticipate it will take for it to settle? Or how long ago did you install the kit?

    I installed it Monday night, got it aligned Tuesday. So since the initial install, it has settled a little bit. I imagine its sitting at pretty much where it should be at this point.

    245/75 is stock size for a 16" wheel. Stock height can handle 265/75 r16.
    265/70 is stock size, IIRC, for 17" wheels. Which is also the largest on stock suspension.

    Adding adjustable shocks only such as the 5100s on stock coils, you can probably get larger tires to fit, but most likely not without a CMC or a hammer to the firewall or fender trimming. "Anything" can fit, actually, you just can't turn and will rub on speed bumps lol

    Smaller ratio than the max with stock height, so they will fit.

    Not erroneous at all. He asked, with 5100s at 1.75", if he could run the factory size. I was stating that even at factory height he could run a bigger tire.

    So the answer to him is "yes".


    The info I posted is a synopsis of the "what's biggest size tire with factory suspension" sticky thread.

    No, it isn't. My 2014 SR truck came with 16" Baja wheels and they were 100% the factory tires in a 245/75 r 16 size.

    This isn't a pissing match. Clearly there was no continuity to the tire sizes on various packages, even with the same wheel size.

    How is 245/75 stock size for 16s if there was "no continuity to the tire size"?

    You're contradicting yourself because your original statement is incorrect.

    If you add the letter "a" to your statement to imply there are multiple stock tire options for a 16" wheel from the factory, then your statement works.
