upgrading the brakes aren't necessary but you could get a powerstop kit, a lot on here get the z36 I do believe

I would only upgrade to whats called a big brake kit if I was running 37"+

Good to know! I'll look into that. Thanks

I need some advice on this. I know I've sort of asked this before but I have 2 specific sizes of tires I'm looking at now. This is based on keeping my factory wheels. 18x8.5 +24 offset.
Using the CST lift will I get any rub with these specific sizes, I want to do zero trimming: 295/65/18 (I can get Duratracs for $271 a piece in this size), along with my factory rims, I'd save big money going this route and I think it would look good. Another option is 305/65/18 which is wider. Slightly more expensive tires (K02's for $320) but still cheaper than 20" sizes and would probably look even better. So the question is will I be certain to have no rub with either one of these?

You would be fine with either one.

They are both 33" tall, just the 295 is 11.5 wide and the 305 is 12" wide.

I compared both on tirefinder and the 305 is not only a 12" but it's also a half inch taller. I wonder if that would make a difference?
I also wonder which would look better?
I'm aiming for the look of Mike's truck in the attached picture (the bottom one!) His truck in the picture though has 20x9 inch wheels with zero offset and mine would be 18x8.5 with +24. I want that height & look! I need to figure out which of those 2 tire sizes will pull it off if any. I figure that the 305 being 12" wide would compensate for the lack of negative offset and make the tires stick out a bit more. I don't want them to look completely tucked into the wells either.

For an example, my father is on a 2" level and is running a 305/55r20, which is slightly taller and about as wide as what I run on my truck. He just rubs the fender a bit. That's with a 20x9 +18 wheel.

I run a 33x12.5 on a 10" wide -19 wheel and still have room left to spare.

You can fit 35x12.5s on an offset around stock. That's what that silver truck in CSTs site is.

So any 33 you pick will be fine with any offset from stock to at least -19.

And in my opinion, the stock wheels are not a good fit for a lifted truck. They look good from the side, but they just dont have the offset needed to widen it out to my liking. Doubt a 12 wide tire would change that much either.

I could never run the stock wheels all year round. If they were like a +18 to a 0 offset they would be so much better looking from the front and rear. It gets too narrow and "tippy" looking imo.

Maybe if I saw what wider tires looked like in person it would change my mind, but with the tires I have on now, it looks narrow from the front or back.
