Sweet BB looks a lot like ours with the wheels and everything! :D

I have the RC lift on it, running 245/60r18 Falken Wildpeak Trails (not the 3s). They fit great and won’t rub even under articulation. You don’t need the kit with them either.

A note if your doing the RC kit, there have been a lot of problems with it. It will 100% make your ride stiffer. It is also very under built in terms of strength and the sway bar link brackets included will break. I’m sorry to say it is almost not even worth installing unless you absolutely need the clearance.

You said that you don't need the RC kit and still able to use 245/60R18 without problems? Igot the option 18s and was wondering.

I'm running 245/60R18 Falken tires on my Big Bend & do not have a lift kit. I have had zero issues! I was going to get the RC lift kit but saw all the issues & decided to wait & see if any other options come about in the future.

That is awesome to hear. Our tire guy at S&S Tires told me the same thing. Dude was great, looked up measurement and best fit for our BS BB w option 18s. Getting them babies on in the morning. Thank for the proof!

Ok here you go. This is George BS BB w optional 18s
Before and after pic
**NOTE: NO LIFT KIT REQUIRED FOR THIS REPLACEMENT
Replaced OEM Michelin 225/60R/18
With Falken Wildpeak A/T Trail
245/60R/18. Perfect fit. No rub at all. A little bit of noise, but as you can see, a much meaner stance.
