When i did my BL i ran my stock tires for a week until i got my new ones ordered in,
it wont do any harm by running the stock tires but it will look funny because they are so small.

Get the Performance Accessories kit, the instructions are really good with it and when taking off the old body mount bolts USE HEAT like a torch to get them really hot before taking them off, it will heat up the loctite from the factory and make it WAY easier

Just get everything together and do it little by little. I have no patience so I have to have it all at once LOL
