  1. TYRICH88's 2015 Z71 BUILD

    Well... I sold the Silverado. My wife and I have been talking about getting a bigger camper than our pop up we currently have and the size we are looking at would be really pushing the limits of the 5.3. So I called my buddy at the dealer and he had some crazy rebates going and I upgraded to a new 2018 GMC Sierra SLT with the 6.2L V8. I sold the Silverado to my dad, which kind of hurt, but at least i can drive it again if i want to haha. The experiences we will have in the new truck with a bigger camper will be well worth the trade. Memories and experiences are always better than material possessions.

    I know this is an old thread... but you just told me EVERYTHING i needed to know! haha
  3. I just sold my truck and got an 18 sierra. BUT... i had 18" Method grids and ran 305/65r18s on a 2" level for the last year or two with no issues. It only rubbed the felt liner at one particular spot in reverse.(And you can zip tie that to solve the problem.) These are 34" tires that are about 12.2" wide. I ran falken wildpeak AT3s and LOVED them. Much better than the BFGs i had before. The BFGs ride great, but the gas mileage of these falkens is just as good and i was running 275s in the BFG. So i went taller, wider and heavier and didn't lose fuel mileage. And i had the 5.3 in the other truck. Check out the build thread in my signature for pictures.
  4. If you're building a "Trail BEAST" add some mid travel suspension and then start the engine mods. That will give the needed lift to fit the bigger tires and the performance to go with it. Report on fuel economy, 0-60 times, 1/4 miles times, etc. Might as well not leave any details out if you're going that hard at the build! Then make chevy build one so we can finally get a raptor competitor!

    Your pictures are dangerous... I think my wife hates you right now lol. Didnt know you had the new truck on here! I need to make it out to AZ
  6. diesel for 19

    AMEN. Look at all the diesel offerings in Europe... We dont get any of the good stuff that they get as far as cars/performance in relation to diesel. EPA restricts the crap out of the potential of these engines.

    No I dont have anything tied back. I plan on tying it back and that should completely get rid of that rubbing though. It's only in very specific situations though. So it's not all the time.
  8. TYRICH88's 2015 Z71 BUILD

    it rubs the felt fender liner at full lock. Mainly only when the suspension is flexed a little though. These tires ride GREAT. My MPG did take about a 1-2mpg hit though from the previous BFGs i had in 275/70/18. I still havent taken it offroad yet though. I'll update when i do!
  9. Post your 2014+ wheel/tire set-up

    2015 Silverado Z71 w/ 2” leveling kit. Running 18” Method grids in +18 offset 305/65R18 Falken Wildpeak AT3 (34x12) And they fit like a glove. No off-road driving yet, but everything in town, parking lots, driveways etc. has produced zero rubbing even at full lock and no trimming has been done. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    LOVE the way these look! They are so much beefier than what I had before. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Biggest tire on +18 offset?

    Well i ended up buying the 305/65/18s (34X12s) and they fit perfect with no rubbing or trimming, even at full lock. Haven't been offroad yet, but have flexed the suspension in driveways and such and still haven't rubbed.

    Well... I got some new shoes for the truck yesterday! Snagged some Falken Wildpeak AT3s in a 305/65R18. These show on the sidewall to be a 34x12 and they fit with absolutely no rubbing or trimming with my 2" level and +18 offset Methods. Granted I've only done some city driving so far. But at full lock turning in and out of parking spots and my driveway, i have yet to rub anything. These things look awesome too. I'll post pics shortly.
  14. Long Travel

    Ok the responses in this thread are golden hahahaha In light of giving an actual response, if it's a daily driver i would say mid travel. That's what i've been looking at. It's more practical for day to day, at least for my uses it is. As said before, the baja kits looks pretty great.
  15. Dude those lights look AWESOME. Now you've got me light shopping haha
