So, me and my pops just finished installing a 2'' daystar lift on my 2007 white limited. It took a little over 2 hours and was unsure about lifting it but not anymore. Just those couple inches make a huge difference in the stance. Now its on to tires. Most likely going with a 265/70. has anyone ever used something larger with a 2" lift? Seems like alot are using Goodyear Duratracs or Firestone Destinations. Everyone loves them but i was wondering if the extra money spent on them is worth it over something like a Falken.
alot of people are using those tires because of the reviews from this site and other sites .... they are very good tires but there are also great tires that are less money for example theres a discussion a couple threads down on general grabber at2 which are great cheap tires .... it really depends on what you are going to use the tires for
im sticking 265/70s on my lift because thats that the recommended size is for the 2 inch lift im sure u could go a tad bigger with a few mods but there are some ome lift guys on here running a 265/70 and they look huge even on their lift... post some pics when you can really curious to see how it came out !!
i'll post a few pics tomorrow. It came out really well i think and once i get the tires it will look better. I do most of my driving on the highway so i dont want anything too extreme or change the ride all that much. My father has had his own repair shop for 20 years so mods arent much of a problem. I'll probably go with the 265/70s though. I remember reading somewhere that Generals are loud and dont wear well. But i'll check out the thread. thanks
Tires are debatable. Many people have a lot of success with a wide variety of tires. Destinations aren't nearly as expensive as Duratracs. I don't think I've heard a bad thing about either tire. Duratracs have a much meaner look, but you pay for it.
Best advice is to search around the forums and google a bit. There's even a thread solely dedicated to tires on here, just not under the WK subsection.

Yea i like that aggressive tread pattern and look but Duratracs might be a bit too expensive. I checked out the General Grabber AT2 thread and did a little research on them. I think i might be going in that direction.
The General AT2 is a solid tire and the same with the Falken Wildpeak and Rocky Mountain. All great tires that will beat the big name companies in performance and price! I have seen guys beat the piss out of the falkens and they just keep going.
Everyone seems to love the look without the lower air dam. I just dont know if im sold on it yet. I might remove it, drive it around for a little and see if it grows on me. If i get the front skid i might be forced to remove it unless i could figure out a way of modding the air dam and making custom brackets.
