NEW TIRES.. any input please?

i got a 03 350 and im getting 20 inch xd series rims: (http://www.dubzdirect.com/wp-content...LOSS_BLACK.jpg)
and i was looking at the kelly mts, (http://www.goodyear.com/cfmx/web/med...ceAttitude.jpg)
but ive heard both sides of the story, like ive heard they were good and had no problems, and ive heard there not good and they suck in mud.. but the main reason i wanted to get them is because my friend has a hookup on them and can get them for $150 a piece..

any suggestions?

thanks

what kind of truck do you have? because i still need to get a leveling kit to fit 35's.. and i was wondering what you had, because the guy at my local truck shop said it would cost around 850 .. which is 4in in the front and 2in in the back, he said that was my only choice to fit 35's comfortably...

what kind of levelin kit do you have?

thanks

I'm running 35s with just an add a leaf up front. Had to trim some of the plastic inner fender to stop the rubbing while turning.

how much was your add a leaf? i found some that were as cheap as 75..

and if i got a 2in add a leaf in the front , do you think that would be plenty? would the extra spring in the bed of a 350 make any difference to the height in the rear?

same. It was an add a leaf on the front that raised it 2 inches. I had a friend go to the local spring shop we have and get a set for $100. It makes the truck look great.
