Default Suggestions on this lift?

Im looking at getting a 3'leveling kit with a 1' lift in the back from Truxxx. Im hoping to fit 33's or 305/70/17's. Im worried it might look like a mexican mobile with the tires being to big and sticking out to far and just looking stupid. But i want to get as much out of the tires and lift as possible. So leave me any sugestions. Thanks

305/70/17s will fit, and will stick out about an inch, but they fit. I would recommend using 285 70 17s as they look good, and are good for the lift.

If i were to go with the 305's how much room between the wheel wells doyou think there would be? And if you know off the top of your head will aftermarket rims fits on that small of a lift.

i know a guy with a 99 with the lift youre looking at and 305/70/r16s and they look good...i personally think 285s are a little too skinny with a lift. you can put wheels on it but depending on backspacing they may or may not stick out for the "mexican" look you're talking about

My mom has 305s and aftermarket rims on her 04. Now im not sure howbigthe lift is but im sure that its just a body lift. And it dosnt stick out that far and trust me there is no mexican look to it at all.

they stick out about maybe 1/2 inch to an inch on stock wheels. looks about right to me. you dont have a lot of clearance forward to back but they dont rub with the lift. hope that helps

are you looking at the kit with the shock brackets and torsion keys?? arent the torsion key lifts hard on the front end ball joints and everything else?? just wondering cuz that lift looks like a good idea otherwise. i have the same truck. hate the rake angle!
