I had 33's before and had issues with them rubbing and they hurt my gas milage way to bad. I want this truck to be more drivable. STL has 31's and they look great with the same mods as this truck. If you look at 33's compaired to 32's there is almost no difference. I also didn't want to have to crank the tbars up too much. My old truck rode like crap.

I agree 100%. I wish I would have gotten 32's.
