    You will also need to do trimming and possible body mount chops to prevent rub at full suspension load.. also may need UCA's (or hub centric spacers) on stock wheels.

    Myself, I'm going to get KM2's... you can get 285's for less than 1k for 4 tires... but you'd probably want the spare too.

    Wheel spacers make body mount rub worse. I have 32.78" tires (285/65/18), and I had to do A LOT of trimming with bilstein 5100's set at 2.5"

    ^w/ 315's your going to rub a TON more than with 285's.. cab mount chop is a must and a pretty big amount of fender trimming, and even at that with just 2.5 in the front i don't think you'll clear them.

    Yep, should just add a 6" while you're at it to clear those. Better yet, just SAS it.
