Yeah springs are 5x11 225lbs.

Yes keeping them gold, I wasn't sure at first but I am honestly amazed at how they look.

The front is a little too low as it is, I scrape EVERYthing :-/ Rear needs to go down hard core.

I'm runnin 215/45/16's I think maybe a little skinnier sidewalls would have been ok too, but overall I'm very happy with how they look oddly enough.

I did -- I also think it looks "cleaner" w/out the mudflaps, especially on a lowered 240.
