    Personally i would go with the 5100's. You don't have to crank them up all the way yet but when your ready to get new tires you can crank them up and fit larger ones in there.

    I'm pretty sure if you crank them up to 2.5 you can run 285's. Probably safer with 275's so you don't have to trim your fenders. I'm not 100% sure on this. Hopefully chris 4x4 will chime in....

    5100's and adjust the C-clip accordingly. depending on your tires at the time.
    nice investment
