You can run 35x12.50x20 on stock rims at stick height. It will rub slightly on the radius arm but you won't feel it being that it's smooth stamped steel. Here's a pic of mine before the lift was installed.

I have 285/75/18 ( toyo calls them 35x11.5x18's) on my stock 8" wide wheels. No rubbings of any kind and no leveling kit

35x12.5 works on stock wheels. 35x11.5 or 34.5x12 is perfect IMO.

MPG will drop about 1 when you level it, and put a slightly wider heavier tire. If you are worried about mpg loss, leave it stock!

Spacer kit should not even cross your mind.

If you do level it, icon or Carli is the only way to go.

I have 325/60/20 (35.5)on stock wheels and they do rub the radius arm at full lock.you don't even notice it just see fresh polished metal on the arm! the only thing you have to look out for is a wire that runs on the radius arm on the passanger side,the bigger wheel will grab it and pull on it. I just flipped the plastic connector to the inside of the arm. and I really like the readylift sst kit,very complete. and don't forgrt to upgrade your steering stabilizer as well,makes a world of difference.


no level yet, my readylift stuff is here just no time to get to it.
