Couldn't wait for winter to end. If they forcast snow I'll swap the stock wheels back on. Calling for 60s again this week. These 10 plys at 40 psi have the same load capacity as the stock SRAs at 35 psi and they somehow ride smoother. I was worried I'd feel every crack in the road. I guess the deep lugs absorb them better.

20x10 Full Throttle -24 offset

33x12.5x20 Atturo Trail Blade XT

 

5100's on top setting in the front. Rubbing rear end of fender well. Not too bad. Debating about going higher or getting slightly smaller tires.

Not my picture but it rubs right here... it's right before full lock, the edge of the tread brushes against the felt. There is also a small bolt there holding the factory plastic moldings it rubs one while passing by it. In this picture the person did a little trimming there

I'm almost thinking if I would have went with a 3 inch level they might clear.

I love how that looks. Its different for me to not be lifting this new truck and going with 35s and x12s, so staying leveled is making wheel and tire decisions SUPER difficult for me.

Sounds like you two need to trim that area.

285 70 r17 BFG KO2s on Mickey Thompson 17x9 Classic Black (-12 offset). Rough Country 2" leveling kit. No rubbing anywhere. Ride is excellent and nearly as quiet as OEM tires/wheels. Very happy with this setup.

 

looks great nice to see decent wheels on a newer truck...

Thanks!

 

I've owned GM trucks for years, first time doing custom wheels. I got motivated to do it when the factory 20s got scratched up when I got stuck doing normal truck stuff. I'm much happier with the 17 inchers. It's just my experience, and people use their trucks differently, but for me the fact that the factory SLT 20" wheels are flush with the tire sidewalls makes it too easy to damage them.

 

Each to his/her own!

 

This forum was my main source of information on wheels/tires/offsets/rubbing/leveling kits when figuring out what I wanted. Worked out great for me. Appreciate everyone's information and willingness to help. Good stuff!
