Just got back from a 600 round trip from last weekend at the in-laws, yesterday. Took off stock wheels and put my 305's back on. Worth the swap, trip up there I got 16 mpg. On the way back I go 18 mpg!! I was surprised!! I found that 72-73 mph was my sweet spot on the freeway. I guess I can get decent mpg out of the 6.2L.
Just finished changing the oil in the truck. Gave it some fresh Mobil 1 at 41000 miles. Also took the 295/55/20 Toyo at2 off and put the stock 17" rims on. Going on trip next weekend and stockers ride soo much nicer, are quieter, and get better mpg. Plus when I get back, the truck is going in to get the transfercase checked out.

Hate is say it but I kind of like driving it instead of my truck. Great power and handling and has plenty of cargo room. I haven't played with the awd yet. We are averaging mid 20's for mpg.

Put in stock and the new combo and it will tell you how it will fit compared to stock. https://www.rimsntires.com/specspro.jsp
03blackz71 replied to Immaculate Reflections's topic in 2014 / 2015 / 2016 / 2017 / 2018 Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra 1500My stock 17" and 265/70/17 tires are around 60#. My current 20" with 275/60/20 are like 82#. And my other set which is 17's with 295/70/17 nitto g2 are like 95#. Planning to upgrade to 295/55/20 toyo at2 next week. There is a difference in stock to larger tires but you get use to it. The main thing is you will lose mpg.
