    That is the tire size ReadyLift recomends to run with that kit.

    Post some pics when you get them mounted KJ!

    Here a couple of pics before I lifted my truck. This is the same tire size as well as I had the 2.25 leveling kit installed. I hope these help!

    They might rub since you're changing the wheels.

    On stock wheels, they won't rub. I have that size tire on my truck on the stock rims, when I first put them on they didn't rub at all. If you add aftermarket wheels that are a lot wider or have less offset, OR you add a wheel spacer to the stock wheels, you'll get rubbing when you turn. I put 1.8" wheel spacers on (the truck looked too narrow to me) and had a little rubbing on the plastic wheel well liner when turning. A little cutting with the dremel tool fixed that.

    Those pictures are awesome!

    BigBomber -- how'd you know they would fit without rubbing? Do you know from experience or is there a site that will tell you fit? I'm wondering with a 2" level on my 09 silverado what the biggest tire I can put on without rubbing. Thanks!
