A good leveling kit?

I was wondering if this would be a good leveling kit to buy for my 05 Titan SE 4x4.
I'm new to leveling/ lifting to so I don't know the details on everything.
Any suggestions/advice would be greatly appreciated.

Re: A good leveling kit?

unless you plan on getting new uca's 2" is the max lift you can go with a spacer and not get cbc. As for a good quality spacer lift, as long as its solid high quality billet aluminum you'll be fine. Most people on TT are running either a prg or ncd leveling kit. I have the ncd leveling kit and love it.

Re: A good leveling kit?

I ended up going with the NCD. It's on its way.
Now, what size tires would you guys recommend with just the leveling kit?
Or should I say, what will clear without rubbing?

Re: A good leveling kit?

if you keep stock wheels anything in a 33" will be fine. If your willing to do the pwm you can go up to a 35". Depends on how crazy you want to go. A 275/70-18, 285/65-18, 295/65-18, 305/65-18, 33x12.5x18 or if you want really wide a 325/60-18. Now its up to you on what you want lol. I don't suggest 35's thats what I am currently running and I had to cut my pinch weld as far down as I could go and I guarantee I will have rubbing issues at full flex. I plan to go 33's in a few months. Now if you veer away from stock wheels or aftermarket with similiar backspacing (For example an 18x9 with 18mm or 25mm offset will work well) it starts to get a little tricky on tires.

Re: A good leveling kit?

When I end up getting new tires after winter, I'll be getting new wheels to go with them. I'm really liking the Moto Metal 959 wheels, which are 18x9 with an 18mm offset. I'd like to get 33's, but I have literally no idea how much trouble I will have looking for tires.

Thanks for the help, by the way. I appreciate it.

you should have no problems with any of the tire sizes I mentioned, using your stock wheels or the ones you mentioned. All the sizes I listed are 33's, it all depends on what look you're going for. If you want a nice looking modest tire then go with the 285/65-18's(same diameter as stock but an inch wider) they will look way better than your stock size or if you want a very wide aggressive look then go with the 325/60-18's (33x13). If your trying to get the best of both worlds then go with the 305/65-18(its around a 33.5x12.3). The 33x12.5 are also a really nice size. it basically comes down to what look you want and what tire you decide on. Different manufacturers offer different sizes and the style tire also changes the available sizes.

Re: A good leveling kit?

I've been looking into the Falken Wildpeaks and the Nitto Terra Grapplers. I don't wanna go too expensive but I still want some nice looking A/T tires.

I love my falkens. They are the Rocky Mountains which is the exact same tire as the wild peak just the discount tire name. They are great on and off road and will get you more than 50k miles if you rotate them. I got mine for 880 with free replacement, road hazard, 55k warrenty and tax

Re: A good leveling kit?

So, my spacers came in last week, got em put on this week. And I also ended up finding some 305/60/18 Nitto Terra Grapplers for $180 a piece, thanks to connections in my local tire shop.

Really? Was it a solid t6 alliminum spacer? I have am running a true 3 inch spacer from ebay with my rc kit and it rides great. Maybe I should have put prg on it with a sharpie and it would ride even better.
