Default 1st post & questions (tire size/leveling kit)

I have an '08 1500 4WD. My stock tires are beat & need replaced.

I'm thinking of 305/55/20s on my stock wheels. I'm also contemplating a leveling kit (Daystar?). Anyone have any input, suggestions, pics?

Anyone regret the leveling kit? Is there any kit better than another?

Thanks!

I don't think i would ever regret my leveling kit! makes the truck sit way better and have a way better stance plus you can stuff bigger tires under! the combination your going for seems like it will work great! maybe go a little bigger to like a 305 60 20?

Haven't done much to it.Tint, 12" sub & amp, and Flowmaster 40's. I'm on nightshift so pics will have to wait.

Daystar makes good stuff. I've used some of their kits and never had a problem. With a 3" kit, for instance, a LT325/60RX18 is no problem. Here's a pic to give you an idea:





Yup, I need flares...

You wont reget it man. Our trucks look so much better without the rake... Here's some pics of mine. 2.5" HBS spacer and 33" toyo M/T's ( same size as the 305/55/20)
