    Any body out there running the NBS with leveling kit, whats the biggest tire I can fit with any major mods? I have lots of room in the fron back the back of the inner fender right now with 265's only gives me maybe 1/2 inch. is it a pain to punch it all back to fit bigger! going by the front I could almost fit 34's.

    that chart isnt very accurate because im running 325/60/18 on my truck and it says i need a lift to fit them, i dont even have a leveling kit, all i did was cranked the bars and did some triming and they fit fine

    I've got an 08 Sierra and put the readylift leveling kit in. They claim it brings the front end up 2.25" but I'd say its maybe 2" at the most. I've been running 305-55's on 20" rims and have had no problem. They rubbed on the mud guards when I first mounted them but without the guards there is no issue. The readylift website claims 33" tires will fit but it all depends on the width. Mine are wider because i like that look, so I think they are just over 12" wide, and about 32" tall. It all depends on your taste. For the rear I just added a leaf and had it rearched. Hope this helps with any issues.

    The tire fitment guide is not 100% accurate. It says for my 08 silverado I need a 4inch lift to fit 285/70/17 on my truck, FALSE. I have them on now and they have never scrubbed and it has been offroad.
