*nevermind* I see from AZs truck that, yes, you can.
I still have a 1 1/4" rake with them set at 2.1". If I had them at 2.8" it would be closer to 1/2" - 3/4" rake. That's about as level as you can get IMO.

Anyone know what size tires I could run with a set of Bilstein 5100s in the front and stock 20" rims? I don't wanna stuff the well, but don't want tiny tires, either...

Thanks!

35's look stuffed with only a leveling kit IMO. i'd stick with 33's and go with a wider tire than stock. just one man's opinion, it's all personal preference. to answer your question: i believe with the Bilstein's set at 2.8" you can fit 35's. the width is the issue with stock 20's. which 20's do you have chrome clad or painted aluminum? if you have the chrome clads and want a 12.50" wide tire you may need to look for one that runs narrow to avoid rubbing your UCA's; say around 12.2" wide.

in that case, here's the clearance i have with the same wheels and 305/55/20 tires listed as 12.4" wide on Toyo's website. should give you a point of reference to work with.

You can get different rims with a -offset to bring the tires out. Or you can use wheel spacers.

that's a personal choice but after looking into wheel spacers i decided against ever using them (turns out i didn't need them anyway).

Thanks for the info, Porter! And yeah, aftermarket rims aren't an option...I like the stock ones and do not want to spend another $1k on rims.
