    Can I assume you work for/at Carli?

    Hi, I am new on here. Great explanation on the wheels, I still have a question. I am looking at the Carli 2.5 pintop kit for my 2017 f250. these are the wheels I want, https://fitment.blackrhinowheels.com...rd&model=F-250 in 17" they are 9.5 wide with 6+offset and 5.49 backspacing. Since you guys recommend 9 wide will this wheel work with out rubbing? Or do I need to go to the 18? I just want 35" tires, Toyo AT or MT. Thanks for the help.

    OCVeloMAn, Im looking for a 3.5 to 4 lift for my 2018 F350 Platinum. I had a 2014 F350 with a 6 Fabtech lift and it had horrible ride quality. I saw a truck with 3.5 in front and a 1 block in the back that I liked. I want the best ride quality I can get. I want everything to function close to the same as stock if thats possible? Should I get the suspension lift or blocks? Im willing to pay more for best quality. Ive been looking at Icon, BDS and Carli. Can you recommend what I should go with? I do all freeway driving. I dont off road at all. Im also thinking about getting 37 tires but I heard that will make the ride quality worse than a 35 tire. I think 35 tires will be too small no matter what. Do you know if 22 wheels will be different than 20 wheels as far as ride quality?

    Thanks for your time,

    Jeremy

    So I am really torn between the BDS 2.5" coil over conversion w/ radius arms or the Carli Backcountry 2.5". I would like to stick around that $3000 to $3500 mark max.

    I have a 2015 F250 CC 4x4 KR. Total stock with 15k on the clock. Truck is used mostly for daily driver and for hunting trips. I pull an 18 ft enclosed trailer on a few hunting trips a year...but don't pull anything really heavy. Mostly a glorified dog taxi. I just want to run 35" tires with either 18 or 20 inch rims.

    Or....do I piece together a system?

    Any input would be GREATLY appreciated. Thanks in advance!!!

    I think I am going to stick with the 20's and get the E rated tires. Is it a real big deal for fitment, or is it more of a ride quality issue?

    Thanks for your help in answering some of the questions I had. I have my 2.5" backcountry lift on as of today and am loving it! Could you recommend a specific airbag kit that will work with my lift and the full leaf replacement in the rear? I had ordered the Air Lift Load Lifter 5000 and the guys are saying it will not work with my full leaf replacement in the rear.

    Question about my 08 f250 with 4" bds lift. So I am wanting to buy the Carli backcountry 2.0 but can't justify spending $5000 with full leaf spring rear...So here is my question, can't I just buy the 4.5" coil springs they sell, the backcountry 2.0 reservoir shocks for all 4 corners and the leaf spring upgrade and get a MUCH better ride? I already have the adjustable track bar from my 4" lift, I already have the bds radius arm drop brackets...The only other thing I may need that I see is the sway bar end links, drive shaft drop bracket and stainless lines....According to carlis website I could get everything for about $1500 less this way...What is your take...

    I have the 4.5" Back Country on a 2012 F-250. Looking at tire and wheel options. Considering the Ballistic Jester 18x9 wheels with Kuhmo Road Venture KL78 tire, 355/65R18. According to their websites, the wheel is available with a +12 offset/5.5" backspace, or a -12 offset/4.5" backspace and the tire is 36.5" x 14.1". Do you think this will fir my truck, and which offset/backspace should I go with? You have experience or knowledge regarding the Kuhmo tire? I have procomp MTs now and they are super loud so looking for an AT tire but trying not to spend a fortune.
    Thanks in advance,
    John
