    Hello all,

    Just purchased a white '12 DCSB off road. I am very happy with the truck as it is much more practical for my hour drive to work then my '05 CTS-V was.

    On to what I'm looking to do... (mind you I have been doing a bit of browsing on here these past few weeks I've had the truck)... for now I want a 3", maybe LT, but I want it to ride great (close to stock, maybe a bit stiffer) and perform good on trails and hills and a little bit of mud holes.

    My question is, what is the lift "most" of you have gone to? I see 5100's are a good go to. I am not planning on going higher in a few years, but you never know. I do not want blocks or spacers at all. I have seen one guy on here did Billie 5160's in the back and Icon res coil overs in the front with a UCA.

    Now, my dilemma is, I am thinking of grabbing a 265/75/16 KM2's or MTR kevlars, and keeping my stock wheels for now. I think I will need wheel spacers to keep from rubbing and I want that wider stance. I have been looking at wheels but I don't believe they will fit my budget right now.

    Please give me your thoughts and recommendations to get me performing better off road, but still have a great hour drive each way to work.


    P.s. Sliders and bumpers will be coming soon also.

    that tire size should fit without rubbing. If you want spacers then that is totally up to you to just change the stance. but they would not be necessary for that tire size.

    However if you lift the truck and go to bigger tires, you may need them if you keep your stock wheels.

    Welcome man! Ive seen 5100 used and people seem to like them alot, they wont get you a full 3" if you have your heart set that much lift.

    procomp also has a 3" lift some people say it rides fine, other people say its a little harsh till it breaks in.

    Also spindles, which will keep your stock ride quality i do believe.

    I know im missing one more, i cant think of it now, im sure others will chime in

    Hope that helps and welcome to TW!

    I guess a 3" isn't necessary with 265/75/16... what size could I run with a 3"
