Swapped out my tires over a month ago need advice
 
Took these real quick sometime last week with the new nitto 285/40/22 420s I had 305/45/22 nittos before the swap. I like the ride and look better on the 285/40s. I would bottom up at least 3-4 times a week being the 305/45s with a 2/4 drop (OD 32.6") vs the OD 31.1" of the 285/40s. Now I'm thinking of dropping my truck another inch all the way around for a 3/5 drop....has anyone cut belltech coils? All I ever heard cut was the McGaughtys coils cut... If I do cut my coils I will be upgrading my front shocks to the Qa1 adjustable shocks so I can get the right rebound just right. Tell me what you'll think should I leave it at the 2/4 drop or go for a 3/5 drop??

The new size 285/40s

Hey TBH I am thinking of going with the 285/40/22 as I bottom out constantly with my BT 2/4 drop. I'm always hitting fender well right now. Most people say that the 285/45/22 is the way to go but I'm sure I will still bottom out.
