What are you suing it for I would not want 22's off road or towing? I like a little more rubber to absorb the bumps. There are a lot of trucks on here with both 20's and 22's that all look good.

if i had the $$ i woulda went with a level kit and 22s on 35s but crap aint cheap and i tow all th time... would look great though.

more pratical is a level kit and 20s and 35s...right now im running a 20x9 0 offset, level kit, 35x13 a/t tires and i love the stance and didnt loose much power or mpg...

at least you know what wheels you want though! LOL thats like 3/4 of the battle, so many options...

i dont tow that much and the only offroading i would be doing is to go hunting and fishing so that wouldnt be a problem...but can i fit 22x11 with a 35 with just a leveling kit? im not wanting to drop 1000 dollars on a 2.5 inch icon

My 2.5" 18x10 wearing 35's with -12 offset rubbed barely on the felt fenderwells, I molded them back about an inch and no more issues. Tell you though the Icon springs ride great, you can pick up the springs alone for under $250. I have a buch of pics to truck I had taken or downloaded and will pm you the link later.

where in the world can you get icon springs for under 250?? everywhere i looked was around 400+ shipping... but ya coils and front shocks is all you have to get... right now im just running pucks which around around 50 and rides fine...

also, unless you want the tires sticking out a ton i would go with the narrower rim... mine stick out about an inch and a half or so probably so you would be more like 3" away from the body with that setup..

Remember you get what you pay for with a lift/suspension kit. So glad I did not go cheap.

Yea I would love to do an icon but for the money of the 2.5 I could add a lil more and get a 6chance inch kit..but if I was t o springs from icon what would I need and what would be the benefit of changing the shocks and which ones would I need to go with

the stock front shcoks will be extended out too far with a level kit so you just need longer ones... i would go with the bilsteins not too awful priced and seem to be a pretty good shock...
