Talking Hell Bent Steel 2.5" leveling before and after

So I ordered a HBS 2.5" leveling kit a few weeks ago and took it to a local shop to have it installed. The kit itself was $80 for HBS website and the local shop (Total Customs in Columbus, Ms) charged $213 OTD including re-alignment, labor and tax.

Needless to say I am happy with the out come and now im ready for some new wheels and tires. Im thinking Black Fuel Hostage 20x9 wheels and not sure on tires yet, thinking something like 305/55/20


The first 2 are before and the last 3 are after.

Thanks!

There was hardly a difference in ride quality, I did feel that the front end suspension might be a little stiffer but I'm honestly not really sure if it changed or not? None of my friends in the passenger seats can tell a differance in ride quality though.

As for the wheel/tires im stock right now but im thinking about getting black fuel hostage 20x9 wheels with general A/T 305/55/20. Still doing research on tire sizes and prices. I dont want to have any rubbing issues.
