It all depends on what wheel you are using. 8 and below will work with a leveling kit, but my 16x10s required AT LEAST 5" of lift. Just a personal thing, I don't like running a 12" tire on an 8" wheel regardless of how tall it is.

If you're going to be a concrete four wheeler, maybe not, but if you intend to go off road like I do, yup. Even with 5" I have stuffed my tires into the trailing edge of my fenders. In fact, I've stuffed them going into a parking lot if the wheel is turned right.

Again, a skinny wheel works for fitment but not so great for even tread wear. Even with my 10s I only run 45 psi to get even tread wear. By even tread wear, I mean using a coin as a depth gauge and checking across the tire.

I ran 305s on a leveled 00 on 16x10s and they looked good. you run 315s on a leveled truck and I dont care what you run for wheels it looks crammed.

I know that, that why I made sure to mention that he was using the stock rim :thumb:

Personally, i don't think its a great look

I also dont like tire sticking waaaay out the side unless its covered by flares.
To each their own though :)
