    Thinking Bilstien 5100/eibach combo for lift, my 2012 MGM DC already has the TSB so maybe just a level...

    expect with lift and 33s to prob be closer to 19, dont worry im at 14.5 now with all the crap I have done with out gears.

    I've got the method beadlocks as well, they are just made better IMO. I had KMC and side by side the method is superior.

    Ok I'll be the weirdo. I have the KMC hoss wheels and I love them. The methods are just a little too dark for me. Both are cool tho. Good luck.

    I've been scouring the net, and can't find an answer anywhere. Can someone please tell me how much the methods weigh? I want them in 17"
