How's the wear on the federals? I like the look of those.

I 3rd the vote for 35's. Especially if you're planning on doing a 1.25" body lift. 33's will look to small and if you get a 20x9 0 offset rim you won't have any issues with rubbing.

Yeah not sure on the body lift. If I do then probably run 35's if just the level then 33's. I hate choices.

Ok guys got another option. Thinking of keeping the stock 20's for cost reasons maybe Plasti Dipping them.
Bilsteins set at 2.1 with stock 20's on 285 or 295x65x20. A wheel spacer is not needed for this correct?

I think with a 295 you're going to be pushing it.... I know you'll clear a 285 without a wheel spacer no problem but I've heard of a few guys having issues with the 295. fastNugly will be able to tell your for sure though.

Well just ordered the Bilsteins along with a Magnaflow y pipe so I can install my Aero muffler. I'm going to run the stock wheels/tires for awhile with the level.
