Are you changing wheels and tires...or just need new tires for the 18" stockers? When I was just looking for tires, Sam's had decent BFG ATs for $175.

Update on Free Flows!
Magnaflow has now come out with a performance bolt on Cat for our trucks. I don't know any specs on them yet but I know that they have them.

Yea I would too. Might as well go ahead and complete the whole exhaust system once and for all.

The gain from a "free flow cat" will be very minimal, sound will be better and thats about it. I would not go searching for HP anywhere from the cats forward. Buy some LT headers and delete the rear two cats.

I complete system adds from 20 to 40 horse. It drones like a .. droneing drone. and is very expensive. you lose some on low end but double it at mid to top end. The catch is that you have to do it right. no cutting corners. All stainless and no crappy welds. Also you lose the heat shield from stock.

If/when I get my twin Turbo setup I am going to do the whole exhaust system over to maximize the gains.

Yea you pretty much have to do that or you're just wasting your money by not letting everything run at full potential.
