Putting together a little Light guide similar to what MotoMedic did for the Silverados. More details to come on this with swaps and some photos. (Yukon and Yukon XL Only Low, High, fog, license and back-up apply as GMC has more OEM LED handling the others). Some of these may apply to 2014 model year but the bulb size is different like the 2014 Yukons. Tutorial videos (Courtesy of CarCareKiosk and some random dude on YouTube) reflect as: * Chevrolet ** GMC Side Note: OEM HID Color is approximately 4200-4300K. LuciasMaximus and I are playing around with color matching the factory LED DRL. The factory LED DRL appears to be between 5500K-6000K color wise.

I'm wanting to put some nice looking Beadlock wheels on it with some 33-35 inch Tires, for my next upgrade. (220,000 miles so far)
I would like some advice on what tire would fit while turning full lock to lock without Rubbing. I'm installing the big fender flairs from Bushwacker, that require cutting the fenders, these add 4-5 inches in width. Have a 4 inch lift in front and a 2 inch lift in the rear. (Rancho Suspension lift) I will drive this everyday on and off the farm (tends to get pretty muddy after a rain), as well as on and off road trips. Maybe even some storm chasing.
I'm leaning towards these wheels:
ATX SERIES BLACK AX757 CHAMBER PRO II WHEELS 17x9, 8x6.5, with the BF Goodrich KO2 Tires.
Here is a link with the details. http://www.americanracingequipment.ca/wheel/33130/ax757-chamber-pro-ii
How big of tire can I put on and NOT have any Rubbing? If the Tire sticks out no big deal the fender flairs will cover tires 4-5 inches outside the fenders.
If there are better suited wheels AND tires for this Truck feel free to add that information. This is an expensive upgrade especially since the Drivetrain has also been replaced or rebuilt and upgraded.
Looking for some well thought out honest advice.
I need to run a Grade 8 Tire as I haul my Tractor for service, and I also want the ability to air down for more traction if necessary. The wheels are 17x9. (See Link Above) I would like a strong, capable long lasting Tire for the duties listed above.
I will answer any questions you have of me.
Thanks in advance,

GM continues to black out every model and the new 2018 Chevy Tahoe Custom Midnight looks great to our eyes. “The introduction of the Tahoe Custom last year was well-received by our customers who were looking for the capability of a full-size SUV with the added utility of increased rear cargo space,” said Sandor Piszar, Chevrolet Trucks marketing director. “The Tahoe Custom Midnight takes the capability and value of the Custom trim and adds rugged, all-black features found on our popular Midnight Editions."
The $45,995 2018 Chevy Tahoe Custom Midnight is based on the LS trim and has the following features and appearance changes:
All-black Midnight appearance
18-inch painted black wheels with aggressive Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac tires
Off-road assist steps
Black bowtie emblems.
Third-row seat deleted for additional utility, increasing cargo space behind the second row to 54 cubic feet
355-hp, 5.3L V-8 engine
6,600 pounds of towing capacity
How do you like the look? Would you prefer the third-row seat or the extra cargo area?
