    Default Chart on Wheel/Tire Fitment and Lift Requirement

    Some of you might find this helpful, it's a pretty good table showing what tires will fit with what lifts and if you need to trim or anything. May have been posted before, I found an old print out I had of it so I'd thought I'd share it.

    That's a pretty good print out, and I had also found one on Mickey Thompson's website that was in a spreadsheet format and a little easier to read. They are very accurate too, my friend bought wheels and tires based on that info and it was spot on the money. Thanks for posting this for everyone, I was going to post mine but I was too lazy!

    Default Leveling Kit

    I have heard some leveling kits for the 08's wont fit 33"s. Is there one out there that will. I am eventually going fabtech 6 inch once I save the money but it will be a while. Should I just save for the 6inch or do leveling kit with33"s?

    Your better off saving for the lift and going with 35" tires

    I fit 33's on my 03 with a 2inch leveling kit and it looks pretty good. I am like you and am saving for a bigger lift later on but I just invested in the leveling kit to give it a good look for now. I would go for the leveling kit if you really want something done to your truck right now.
