By the way, Great idea on the thread FastnLoud! And I agree with you on 35s vs. 37s. I have 35s on mine at at some angles the tires look a little small, but hardly noticeable most the time, 37s look the best as long as your gearing is low so you can turn those bad boys.

Also for anybody wandering what size tires and what kind of backspacing you need, BDS has done extensive research on testing all size tires and wheels for rubbing. On their website they list what will fit on each lift.

Rule of thumb for 4th gen trucks, no more than 5" of backspacing (0 offset for a 9 wide wheel) and no bigger than 37" tire (go with 12.50 wide tire and you will get an awesome stance).

Hope these posts help who ever is considering BDS!!
