2017 Chevy 1500 Tires and wheels fitment
CanMan34 posted a topic in 2014 - 2019 Silverado & Sierra07/12/2020 Hey everyone, I'm new to the game. I understand tire sizing but not fitment regarding clearances with aftermarket wheels. Looking for some advice. I know that I would like an aggressive MT in 33's. I'd like to get new wheels because I absolutely hate the stock polished aluminum 18's I have right now. I'd like to get 289-295/70/18's but I'm not sure if that would fit with wheels with a -24mm offset and still have enough clearance in the wheel wells to turn completely without rubbing. My plan is to get the MotoFab 3 inch front leveling kit (strut spacer) before I go and by wheels and tires. If you've done something similar, I'd love to hear form you. If you know of a good way that I could figure this out without buying everything first to test it, that would be great too. Thanks in advance! 07/13/2020 Quick update: I've spoken with a friend of a friend who knows WAY more than myself about lifting trucks and the fitment of aftermarket wheels and tires. First off, he suggested that I don't put in a 3 inch strut spacer kit. His reasoning was that I'd be replacing ball joints, CV shafts, wheel bearings, ect. His rational was that the spacer would through the angles off too much and put excessive wear on many parts. He also said I could go through and change out the upper control arms to attempt to correct the angles a bit (at that point, I'm thinking, well if I'm going to go that far I might as well just wait and buy the real lift kit that I want). Another point he brought up is that if I were to put the 3 inch spacers in, it may through the alignment off so much that there wouldn't be enough adjustment in the stock tie rods to make the proper adjustments needed to complete the alignment. So now I'm just in the process of re-evaluating what I want to do. Stand by for another update soon to come.
Great forum, just joined. Just looking for some clarification before I buy tomorrow / Black Friday 2017 I am looking for a black Silverado LTZ Z71 and came across a few midnight editions which is right around my budget. However on some of lower priced ones, it doesn't have the console between the bottom of the center dash / my link and the center floor console. I'm not sure what that is called, but can this be added easily or by the dealer as accessory? If so anyone know how much does it cost roughly and do dealers install these? Some of the sales guys I've spoken to didn't give me a clear answer. Also anyone know of a good OEM place to pick up some 22's - love the 5 spoke machined 22" with black inserts but its hard to find a black one with those on it.
