double lifted... tires

to the double lifted guys.. ... what size tires do you run?

i have a 3 inch body with 33s, should i keep them or go bigger?

considering doing the spindle lift or the 4 inch super lift, but leaning more to the spindles

pics would be nice

I would go for the spindles as well. The superlift will look worse with all of the drop brackets. Spindles with good shocks and limit straps would ride better as well.
For that much lift, anything under 35s would look too small I think.

The only suspension lift for 2wd edges is the spindles, superlift doesn't make anything for you. You need 35's, 33's look retarded. One guy on here was double lifted on 33's and it looked normal but he was stupid and like decranked his bars making the double lift pointless.

I've seen some people run 33's with a double lift, but it's not ideal.

Here are some examples:

ohhhhh lol opps. the trucks for a 4" block and an AAL in the back, but if I were to redo it I'd spend the extra money and buy the 6" skyjacker leafs and run no block at all.
