    then a 265/70-17 is the largest on stock wheels. if you add backspacers or a new lower backspace then a 285/65-17 0r 33x11.5

    I agree - I just installed the billstein's at 2.5 (gave me 3" front lift) and installed a 2" AAL (Tuff Country) with billsteins in the back. I just installed some 265/70/17 Duratrac's and they're AMAZING. I'm really glad I didn't try anything bigger (was thinking about 285/70/17) they're PERFECT (very aggressive tire btw).
