Lift & Tires or Wheels & Tires

New to the forum and wanting some insight.

I've got the 2011 WK2 White Laredo V6 3.7 with 17" stock wheels and tires. (245/70R17)

I know I want to go with the Mopar black 18" Cast Aluminum Wheels. Just need to decide about the lift and tires.
Looking at the RRO 2.5" lift. I have read some other post saying that its a pain to put on so I would have it installed by a professional. My questions is once its on how do people like it? Does it affect the ride a lot? Do I need the optional control arms that they sell? etc...

If I get the lift installed, can I go with Bridgestone A/T- 275/70/R18?

If I don't get the lift and just get the Mopar 18" wheels What size tire can I run? I don't want any rubbing and I don't want to have to trim out the wheel well.

I know thats a lot of questions but any answers will help out tremendously...

Also if anyone has a white WK2 pics I would love to see them.

Thanks

Talking Re: Lift & Tires or Wheels & Tires

I am new to the garage also...and have questions on the RRO 2.5 quality...I think it maybe to soon for a definite answer yet...But as for options, I have put the tuff country leveling kit on mine and fit 285/50 R 20 without rubbing or trimming. The ride is smooth but I think I will swap out the leveling kit for the RRO if there is good feedback after a few months. Good luck
