Got my 295/70/18 ridges and 2.5” level put on today. Anyone else running this setup? Curious how bad it hurt your mpg and if you did anything to help the slight rubbing at full lock?

I would suspect some rubbing. I wanted to see a setup with stock 18's like I have. This setup looks good. With that said, 285/70R-18 may be the ticket for me.

Also, is it me or do the tires look a little over-inflated? And the angle of lift pic makes the front end look higher than the rear?

I'm running 275/70/18's right now with 2" level and found a good deal on a set of 295/70/18s so I'm trying to find out if they'll fit before i buy. I can always add another 1/2" to the level or thinking a 1.5in BL.

Have you noticed any difference in your steering, I just went from 275/70/18 ko2 to 285/70/18 ridges and my steering got real tight and steering wheel doesn’t return when cornering. Thanks

I have had this exact set up for about a year. I love it. I drive 60 miles to work and back home every day. The Nittos are wearing evenly and haven't gotten any louder since I put them on. Good choice and your truck looks awesome. Makes me wish I'd bought white.

I like those stock 18's.  Trying to decide if I want to switch from the oem 20" snowflakes to these.  Good looking truck.

They look great in black too! Wouldn’t mind switching from my snowflakes as well someday.

Hey y’all, been following this thread but have been waiting for my tires to wear out before bumping up in size to the 295/70r18 ridge grapplers. They’re going on Saturday and I’ll be posting follow up pictures! Thanks y’all!
