    I'm fixing to have my front leveled, I'm running 285/55/20s now. Don't want to go wider, taller is my vision. So how taller can I go without running into problems?

    With a 3/1 level I'm running 285/65/R20 KO2's. This is a 34.6" tire. No rubbing, no cutting. Taller than that and I think you are going to be cutting body mounts, splash guards, wheel-liner plastic in some combination.

    Its good you're not going wider because you'd then need some spacers or different than stock wheels to avoid rubbing the UCAs.

    true 35" tires would fit fine too..with the proper wheel offset.

    Some Mods :) See build thread for details
    Couple questions.
    What is your budget for the lift?
    Are you planning larger tires?
    Are you planning to get different wheels?
    You said you don't want to go wider so I assume no new wheels with different offset and wheel spacers are out of the question.

    My budget for lift and tires, I'm hoping to stay with my 20in wheels, is around $2,000.

    Are you satisfied with the look? 285/65/20, does it look to skinny, like I said don't want to do any cutting or spacers.
