Load c or d. Choices are limited for load c or d in that size. 9 inch wheels are fine

Re: 265 76 R16 stock z71 suspension?

Ok excellent. Might I say, thanks for replying with such knowledge. If it wasn't for folks like you/this forum, people like me would be lost!

This setup is what I want to roll. I think it will look sexy.

edit: is there a downside to dual-drilled rims aka two bolt patterns? Just realized those gear alloy's are dual drillt.

Re: 265 76 R16 stock z71 suspension?

Update - Order is being mounted and balanced as of 1pm today. Greg - what brand AAL did you get or would you recommend me?

Also wondering if I should get a cheap set of hub rings if that will help mount the tires perfectly center. Reading a lot of issues with people who get aftermarket wheels and they don't sit perfect center aka vibration down the highway..

edit: Reading around here seeing skyjacker aal breaking in half, not good. Would I be better off just replacing the rear leaf packs altogether?

Pro comp, rancho, tuff country all make AALs. Never heard of any of those breaking. I found mine on ebay... I don't remember the brand name.

Re: 265 76 R16 stock z71 suspension?

I'll order the rancho rs60613. Its made for jeeps but apparently fits perfect. Not sure what size u bolts ill need.

Also. I bought the RS 5325 shocks for the rear that are to be used with the kit and wonder if that will be okay with the add a leaf. I don't want to over extend the shox.
