Default Leveled now what?

So I pulled the trigger on a set of bilstein 5100 and a 1" rear spacer. I really need help with tires and rims. Would like 35's and no rubbing. Anyone have some good ideas? Oh, I got the rear spacer so I could set the bilsteins to the max.

If you set the Bilsteins to max you'll clear 35's no problem. The width is what you need to be concerned about. Typically to fit anything wider than a 285 on the stock wheels will require 1/4" spacers. If you go with aftermarket wheels you just need to order the correct offset. Typically 0 or -12 for a 9" wide rim.

Couple days ago I got a 2.5 pro comp level. Mayhem wheels with a +18 offset wrapped with Atturo Trail Blade MT's 35x12.5x20 no rubbing and rides just as good as stock

I run Bilsteins at full lift and a 1 1/2 rear spacer. Will soon be moving back down to a 1inch spacer myself. From reading the bils settle around 2.6 lift so my 1.5 in rear is just a bit over kill since I do zero towing at this point.
FYI IMO the ride quality has not suffered at all, only the 35 MTs change the ride quality.

Which rear 1" spacer did you use?

I would bet on Top Gun Customz. They're one of the only companies that makes 1" rear spacers for the 1500's.
