What do you guys think? 18" wheels with 285\60\18 are the setup. Leveling kit on a 2009.

Opinions.....

Well depends on the look you want really. They will be about an 1" taller than the factory 245's, but about 1.5 inches wider. Also they will be just a little shorter than a 265/75R16:drink

I think they would look good, but I would hold off on raising it "truck" too much until you had them mounted on the truck. That way you do not raise it up so much as they look small:drink

I was just hoping it wasn't going to look cookie cutter like the stock do. I will have the leveling kit done once the wheels are ordered that way the bumpers can be trimmed if need be.

I run the same size and I think it looks awesome. The extra width takes away from the cookie cutter look.

I think it'll look good. That should give you a good look of some wheel and some tire rather than all wheel or all tire if you went to big or small. You could probably get away with a 285/65 and not have to worry about rub. My 285/70's just barely rub, just a teeny bit and I'm basically stock height.

anything 285 is going to take away from the cookie cutter look. try the 285/70 and hope for the best, you can always take them off if they dont fit :D

I have some Coopers that I want to burn. They are horrible in anything but dry weather.

i almost got stuck in a wet spot in my yard.

But what can I expect for wheels/tires for 1300 shipped from CA to IL.
