Max tires on lift
gbux07 posted a topic in 1999-2013 Silverado & Sierra 1500I am wondering if I can fit 35s on a 3in body lift on a 2013 Silverado Z71 4x4. Will I need wheel spacers or offset wheels? Will stock 18in rims work or do I need aftermarket ones? Thanks
Wheel Spacers rubbing
Quinn Gonsalves posted a topic in 2014-2018 Silverado & Sierra ModsHey all, I have a 2016 Silverado Midnight edition. The factory size of my tires are 265 65 R18. I recently put on 275 70 R18 and 2” rough country spacers. I’m getting a little rubbing on the insides of the wheel wells when I turn my wheel fully. The fronts barely clear. What’s the best way to fix? I could just avoid turning the wheel all the way but I don’t really want to go that route. Would a lift help? Or maybe cutting out some of the plastic? Or should I just deal with it until the tire wears down some because they are brand new?
2017 Silverado 1500 Leveling Kit RUB?
Huntere posted a topic in 2014 - 2019 Silverado & SierraI am looking at the Readylift 66-3086 2.25" FRONT LEVELING KIT W/ CONTROL ARMS - GM 1500 TRUCK / SUV 6-LUG 2017-2018 https://www.readylift.com/2-25-front-leveling-kit-w-control-arms-gm-1500-truck-suv-6-lug-2017-2018.html For my 2017 Silverado 1500 LT with factory 17 inch aluminum wheels and 255/70R17 tires. After talking to the company, they said that I may need a 1/2 inch wheel spacer for the front so the control arms don't rub on the wheels. Is this true or is this something to try and get me to buy? The main reason I am looking at replacing the upper control arms is because I have an aftermarket heavy duty bumper with grill guard and it weighs around 200Lbs. That worries me with the factory STAMPED control arms it has now. If I need spacers, what spacer is best and cheap? Would I have to modify the studs? What else would I have to do so it doesn't rub? Thanks!
Will i rub?
Rlck posted a topic in 2014-2018 Silverado & Sierra ModsHello everyone, new guys here. I've had my 2014 Sierra 1500 SLE extended cab 4x4 for a few years now. I've done a few cosmetic upgrades, but nothing big. 2" leveling kit, plasti dip wheels and emblems plus some other minor projects. I'm getting new tires for the winter season coming up. I walked into discount tire and the guy took a look at the truck and suggested 285/70/18 size tires (I know very little about tires). My question is will they rub? I've seen a few posts on here talking about spacers and cutting. I'd like to avoid cutting at all costs. Thanks for the help
Hi, I just ordered the Bilstein front adjustable shocks (1.85" front lift) to level the truck and be able to put a bigger tire and was wondering if anyone knew if the BFGoodrich KO2 (LT285/65R20) All-Terrain tire would be okay or would it rub when turning? Any input would be great. Thanks!
2015 Sierra 1500 All Terrain Tires
Cam0313 posted a topic in 2014-2018 Silverado & Sierra ModsI need to put new tires on my 2015 GMC Sierra All Terrain. Currently it is stock height with Wrangler 275/55/R20 but I plan on installing my 2.5" leveling kit i just haven't had time. I was thinking about Wrangler SR-A 275/60/R20 on so when I get around to leveling it the tires won't look ridiculously small. Will I be able to run these without rubbing at stock height? Any input appreciated.
I'm debating which setup I want to go with, and was helping that some of the guys who have a good understanding of offset, tire sizes, etc can help me out. I read all 117 pages of the wheel/tire thread, but it made my head hurt trying to figure out what I need. My truck is a 2014 Silverado LTZ Z71 Crew Cab with the Standard (6'6") bed sitting on factory 22's (SEY CK156). I will be installing the Rough Country 2.5" leveling kit when I upgrade the wheels/tires. I'm set on getting the XD Rockstar II (XD811) wheels in 20x9: I'll probably get a set of the Toyo Open Country M/T's. Other sets I'm considering are the Nitto Terra Grapplers, and Cooper SST. Here's where I really need some help: #1) I'm debating getting the Bushwacker fender flares. If I do, I'd like an offset that helps push the wheel out and make it "flush" with the flares. The XD811's come in a -12 offset which I was thinking would be perfect (based on what I've seen). My question with this setup is: what's the biggest and beefiest tire I can throw on these 20x9's get that won't rub? #2) If I don't get the flares, then I was thinking I'd go with the +18 offset. It'd be almost flush, correct? Perhaps sticking out just a bit? And again... biggest/beefiest set of tires that won't rub. In advance, thank you!
