18X9 Pro Comp 6031's & Nittos 305/60/18
Well I finally got my pro comp wheels put on the other day. I was having some rubbing issues with my nittos rubbing the a-arms when the wheel was turned all the way but these new wheels have a different off set and let the wheels stick out a extra 1.5 inches and fixed that problem and look awesome....
But now with the new wheels the tires are rubbing the finder wells right up against the cab...
So now I'm trying to think of how I want to fix this new rubbing issue. If I go and try to just do some trimming, its a pretty big chunk of metal and I really don't wanna take a hacksaw to my brand new truck. So I'm leaning towards ditching the leveling kit and going for a actual lift kit...
I'm thinking Rancho??? What do you guys think????

Go with the rough country lifts. They are priced really well and I have had no issues with mine what so ever. I think most people if not all on the site would agree they have a quality lift at a great price! Here is a link to the lifts they have available for your truck! Hope it helps with your decision. http://roughcountry.com/chevy_4wd_1500_lift_kits.htmlJustin - Beavercreek,OH

Yeah I was considering rough country main for their price but I came across someones thread that got a rancho for $1100 and that cought my eye.
But yeah I think wheel spaces would make it even worse...

Mfleetwood on here got his 4" Rancho lift and new shocks for $1100. That lift looks sick and I think it would clear your 305's just fine. ReadyLift has a SST lift that you might want to check out.
Truck looks awesome with new wheel and tire combo!!

i'm running 18x9s with 5 in of backspace, I have very minor rub on the inner fenderwells .. just make sure your wheels have enough backspace for the lift.
