Icon5 Pro Comp MT's with studs......

Hey Rangers, anyone using these tires? With or without studs? I'm really undecided between the Pro Comp AT's vs. MT's. I plan on doing alot of snow driving this winter, gonna grab a set of 32" 11.5 on 15" steelies in the next week. It gets pretty crazy here (blizzards n such). Just looking to see if anyone has used the MT's (which have pre-drilled stud holes) with/out the studs. * Wear, tear, performance, so on. Thanks. *Yes, studded tires are legal here in NB.*

cause im a idiot and wrote that I have a 3"BL, when actually I have a 3"level. Damn, I should just get a proper (basic) lift and get 33" 12.5's. Or, just get the 32" 11.5's on 15X8 wheel. Wow lol.

Hey Dave, how do you like your level kit? Is it the new torsion key set up? Cause I'm running 265's right now and I would like to run 285's but without putting on a body lift.

I didn't mind the level. Quality T-keys just allow you to level the truck without "cranking" your t-bars, and gives a nice exterior appearance . But I wouldn't recommend heavy trail riding, as it does put lil' added stress on front assembly than stock, and produces a harsher(stiffer) ride. You could fit them but, they'll be a lil' rubbin'. Looks good....but honestly, I would just get a Body Lift dood, that's what I'm getting in a weeks time. It's just as cheap if a little more. You will have more room(tires), no rubbing and possibly set yourself up later for a suspension upgrade and more. Plus it look's sick as hell. Include some gap gaurds and your golden. That's my opinion though....there are gods in this field on this forum, so be sure to check it all out. cheers/good luck
