I am not sure if this belongs in suspension or tires section but would appreciate some help.
A short Intro
I have a bone stock manual transmission 2008 fx4 with 50,000 km on it. Three weeks ago I was on a motorcycle trip when I got a call from my girlfriend that she crashed my truck. Shes fine but my truck is not.
My insurance company is going to pay $500 to replace a rim and tire. I told them they would be wasting their money because I was about to put a new set of wheels and tires on and the replacement would just be sitting in the corner. Insurance is going to let me put $500 towards what I want and I am to pay the difference.
The wheels I want to pick up are these. http://www.4wheelparts.com/Wheels/Se...n=PXA8069-6865
The advise I am looking for is I don't want to do a body lift and can not afford the superlift now. My truck is a daily driver. What is the best choice for a budget lift that will allow me to run some bigger tires on these rims. pre key? maybe this? http://cgi.ebay.ca/Lift-Kit-4X4-FORD...item48370130d9
and what size tire can I run?
open to any advice Thanks
