      Not sure what tire size I'm gonna run.
      If you are doing a 9.5 all corners posnally a 225 is a mild but perfect stretch.

      Here are some more pics from the install that show off the guts a little more:









      If anyone is interested in putting their C5 on air, hit me up via PM. We can make it happen for much less than the BY stuff thanks to the airlift universals.

      I've got 205/40s on my wheels and they aren't really that big. I think its the perfect middle, low pro enough to be slammed and still turning but thick enough to not feel every railroad track or bump in the road.



      Pic for reference. These wheels are on 18x8 but you can see that they aren't crazy big.

      They are speciality products adjustable arms. Retail is around 450 a pair I believe off their website. I have a wholesale account so not sure what I paid.
