Recently had my front end lifted with the Fox Shocks, next day I got the wheels put on. This is currently how we’re looking

-17” Method Race Wheels NV
-35x12.50 Toyo Open Country RTs
-Fox front coilovers w/ reservoir set leveled
-CST upper control arms

Did a 550mi trip with this new set up this past weekend and I have no major complaints so far!

Looks nice. How high was the front leveled in order to fit the 35's? Did you also raise the rear with a block? And finally, are you concerned you may have to regear for the 35's?

Thanks! I believe 2.25-2.5”, I can’t get a full turn without it grabbing the wheel well though. I get decent turn radius but not as much as I’d like so I may bring it up more. The rear is stock height as on right now, if I bring the front up more then I’ll be raising the rear as well. I have thought about a changing the gears but everyone I’ve talked to with 35s have not had any issues, I may do it later down the line just for peace of mind though.

I’m running the same 35’s on my 2016 GMC with factory 3.42 gears. It works fine. Speedometer is spot on. Verified it last week on CHP speed check sign. It’s just a little sluggish around the neighborhood. Constantly wants to stay in 3rd gear and lug. Flip it to manual and leave it in 2nd if it bugs you.

What size wheel and what’s the offset? I just got some trimming done behind the wheels wells and pushed it all back, so far no scrubbing anywhere. My UCAs are clear from rubs as well but I did buy aftermarket for them, maybe that’s why.

I used the Yakima bedrock rails they are the lowest mount available but I think I might get a different mount to raise it a little. @ZillaOffroad are you running 35x12.5?
