And any of those tires will with just fine.

You can fit 35s with the CST kit with the right offset.

But I run 20x10 -19 offset and 33x12.5 tires and still have a little room.

I had a ton of room with my 0 offset wheels.

The 33x12.5 and 305/55r20 is about the same size tire. Basically the same width just the 305 may be a little taller, usually a true 33" tall depending on the exact tire.
Zones cheaper and good quality, that's why I'm looking at it too. I know the zones not stock track width though. I'm leaning more towards the 305's because of that slight higher size. With a 0 offset it would look good. That's the look I want. I don't want the wheels to far out.

Keep in mind the cutting that goes along with the Zone lift. Need to cut the frame and the front diff needs to get hacked up.

Only cutting on the CST is the crossmember, which could easily be put back to stock.

There really is no going back to stock with the Zone/BDS

That part I didn't know! Thank God for this forum! It will be the CST for sure then.

Yeah that was the major turn off for me on the BDS kit. I had their 4" coilover kit in the cart ready to buy but seeing all the cutting really turned me off. Then mike showed me the install instructions for the CST and I went with that instead. Couldn't be happier.

I can email you the install instructions for the CST if youd like so you can look over them.

I know, we've discussed it before. I know it's not stock track but I also wonder if that 1.5 on the zone would actually help (or not) in clearance for the rubbing.

No will cause more issues with clearance and rubbing.

rule of thumb... the more negative your wheels or if your track width is increased it means you have to get a smaller tire.

Excellent! Easy explanation. Which means CST with factory track + 0 offset with any of the tire sizes I listed should be perfect!

This is a 0 offset 18x9 with a 285/65r18. So a 305/55r20 or 33x12.5 will stick out a tad more just from the wider tire. Image

pretty much decide if you had rather have a little bit shorter tire but wider or vice versa and go from there..

personally I think some 295/60r20s would look great, not sure if you'd have to ziptie plastics back or not though.. if I ever get a set of 20s that's the size im shooting for

Yep, that's what I want. The fact that the 305 is also a tad taller than the 285 + the 20" wheel would give it a nice balanced look without being exaggerated.
