    Anyone have stock 275/65 18 tires with 5100's on top setting? Do they look to small? I want the level look but I do tow a Travel Trailer about 6000# so I need a lil rake. Im considering mid setting it may need a small lift in rear anyway. Any advice? Thanks!

    If you need a little rake, and don't add anything to the back. you'll probably want the middle setting.

    I would do the middle setting if you don't mind a little rake. 6000 lb trailer won't be a problem at all, but you may consider airbags even when running your weight distribution hitch. Just something to research. FYI......A lot of people don't really think about airing up their tires when towing, but I run my 80psi rated tire around 60 psi when towing. Yes, equal air front and rear, cuz if your W/D hitch is set-up correctly, you're distributing equal weight to your front end too. Good luck with all.

    i have 6112's on the 3rd setting and find my tires look a hair on the small side and i'm running 285/55/20's. my next set will definitely be at least an inch larger.

    I had the 285/65/18s and totally agree that they look too small.

    These 295/70s look MUCH better.

    Thanks for the replys now I'm thinkin mid setting. Just got new take off stock wheels and tires so I'm thinkin a small wheel spacer to push them out would help them look wider.
