Hey guys, I'm about to buy a truck with a 6" Pro Comp lift and I'm going to be immediately replacing the wheels and tires. I'm going with Nitto RG's (35x12.5) and I'm trying to decide between buying some OEM 2014 Chevy 18x8.5 (my preferred option) and Pro Comp 7069s 17x9 (my backup plan). I don't know jack about offsets but I do know the PCs have 4.75 backspacing and -6 offset. The wheels that are currently on the truck are aftermarket so I don't know what kind or what size spacers they used. In other words, I may not be able to use the ones on it with either of the wheels I am choosing between. So my question is: 1) If I go with stockers, what size spacers will I need with 35x12.5 tires? 2) If I go with the PC 7069s, what size spacers will I need?
I have a 2018 Sierra SLT and have listed on Autotrader so I can buy a few years older Silverado. I had an older hunting truck and sold it earlier this year. So now I've got an SLT with 36k miles on it that I hate to take onto our hunting property. It's black, so every limb slap will show up and my wife would knock me upside my damn head every time I got mud inside it. Would rather have something I can use as a daily driver and hunting truck, but dang some of these GMCs on here are making it harder for me to sell.
Awesome info. It sounds more like it’s splitting hairs between the 2 and I can’t go wrong either way. I tried researching as much as possible, but just couldn’t find that really spelled out any major differences. I’ve also been in country for most of the past 5 months and stupidly didn’t favorite the info I had found. The benefit is I go to some bad places for extended times, so when I get back my wife is so happy she doesn’t complain about me spending a little money. Anyway, I’m back now and am trying to re-gather it and decided s### on this I’m just going to ask. Thanks for the info man.
Thanks! I’m not running coil overs. That’s why I wanted to ask this question. It just didn’t seem like outside the warranty there was a big enough difference/benefit to going with the pricier kit over the cheaper.

Morning guys, I have a hypothetical Zone vs BDS question that might have been asked, but I don't think it has been asked this way. I have a 2018 Sierra with a 2.5" level now, but am looking to upgrade to a Zone 6.5" or BDS 6" (keeping stock wheels). For the record, I'm a cash buyer and don't trade every couple years...basically, I'll be keeping this truck a long time so I will buy whichever option is the best one in regards to quality/longevity. I was looking at prices for the BDS/Zone and the BDS comes in around $3k with the UCAs, Fox shocks, and add-a-leaf while the Zone comes in around $1300 for their kit with the add-a-leaf. I know the "no questions asked" warranty with the BDS is a BIG plus over the Zone -- although I have heard the Zone customer service is top notch. So, my hypothetical question is, if you strip both of those down to the base kits (no shocks, add-a-leaf, etc), is there an advantage outside of the BDS warranty that would make you choose it over Zone? By the way, I'm keeping the stock 20 snowflakes on the truck so I'm ordering cast UCAs. That might possibly answer my own question considering you can order them as part of the BDS kit, but I appreciate any responses.
A man takes his wife, (who use to be an Auburn Cheerleader) hunting, and impresses on her again and again that "If you shoot a deer, don't let someone else claim that they shot it also and that since they killed it... it's their deer!" So ... he's in his stand hardly for 10 minutes when he hears his wife shooting nearby. He rushes over to her stand to find her pointing her gun at a man who is loudly yelling... "It's your deer lady..It's your deer... Just let me get my saddle off it!!!!"
I hear you. I had an 06 and it was one of my favorites. But yeah, I just don't care for these new ones.
I like the look of the 6 spoke better. But, it’s funny you mention scratches because I found several on eBay that were scratched like crazy. My wife is going to murder me if I keep spending money on it though. I’ve convinced her I need to replace my level with a lift. I went engineer on her splainin’ angles and what not. She gave up the argument, but if I tell her I’m also looking at new wheels, she’ll stab me.
This was last year and I’ve slept a few times since, but they went ahead gave me some discount they were offering for financing with one of the preferred lenders. When I say they gave me the discount, I just mean they took the amount off what I was going to pay. I can’t remember exactly, but I want to say it was $1500. That said, it was close to the end of the year and they had a ton of trucks left. On another note, I love my 20” snowflakes, but I’m thinking about finding some of the 6 spoke 20s.
