Anyone have any comments regarding the before and after ride quality ?

Any pics of this kit installed ?
If his wheel offset choice already puts his wheels flush with the fenders....pushing them 5/8" out further will be extremely noticeable as the pics posted show.

Unbroken is right. My stock 20x9 wheels with 285's stuck out enough to notice but these 22x10's with 305's are more noticeable. I almost bought 22x9 replica wheels to maybe help them not stick out so far, but I still would have gotten the same size tire because it's tall. I went with the Yokohama Parada Spec-X instead of the Nitto 420S because the Yoko's are slightly taller and thinner.

Question for you Unbroken, do your front tires have any rubbing problems? I had read some guy with SRT10 wheels with a stock track width was having to run wheel spacers to not rub. His tire size/choice might have been the problem since it was a 4x4 truck. I know my tires rub something on the passenger side but I can't find it to save my life, it doesn't happen on flat ground though.

Edit- wanted to add that no one has ever noticed my front tires have a wider track width. I'm from a town that drives 4x4 Chevy's though, so take that for what it's worth

Mine will rub the sway bar at full lock with 305/40 Pirellis. I assume it would rub the stock bar too but it rubs the bigger Hellwig bar pretty good.

I see what you mean. No spindles for me. Mcgaughys spring kit will be my drop of choice
