I know the 6112s are semi-new to the community. My question is what would be the lowest possible notch I can install these and still have enough clearance to fit 275X 65R 20 KO2s. I’d imagine the notch settings are similar to the 5100s accept there is 1 extra notch I believe. I have been searching online for the past week and cannot find anyone that confirms the lowest possible setting to fit these tires. I know I can install them at the highest setting and fit just fine, But I am trying to keep rake in the rear due to occasional towing and i do not want to add a leveling block to the rears. I was thinking the third notch (1.25” of lift) would work but I’m not sure if It will get rubbing. Does anyone have any idea on this? I currently have a 2.5 inch leveling spacer but do not want to install it when I switch to the Bilstein 6112s. Thanks!
I've got a 3500 that I'll be using to tow a 5th wheel later this year. Right now I'm in the market for mudflaps. I'm looking at the x-long Duraflaps that will sit about 14" below the fender in the rear (leaving me 6" from flap to ground), which is fine and dandy. However, i'm concerned about when I hook up a 5th wheel, how much that 6" will be decreased. Those of you who drive a 2500 or 3500 that tow a gooseneck or 5th wheel - about how much have you noticed the rear lowering? I know it depends on the weight of the trailer, but i'm looking for some ballpark numbers. I'd hate to buy these x-long flaps that end up being 2" off the ground after hooking up the camper.
Hi there, this is a two part post, so please bare with me, First, I'm wondering what everyone recommends for lift/level on a 2013 Siverado. It is a Z71 4x4, and the previous owner had installed Monroe shocks and struts. There is 1.25 inch blocks on the rear leafs (leaves?), but I can't tell how much lift the front shocks gave the truck, and what it would look like when I take those out and put a new lift/level kit in. Second, I'm wondering whether this setup is considered a level, and if that's the case, how can I gain as much more ground clearance as possible without stressing the driveline and axles too much. I currently have 265/70/r18 tires on the truck and I know tires are what give the truck ground clearance so I guess bigger tires is what I'm really looking for?Any inout is very much appreciated!
Clearance is key

From the album: The ReplacementNot much clearance, but never had an issue with rubbing or grabbing until I put aftermarket mud flap because of the rocks the tires throw. But even then it was only when turning the wheel all the way in
Tire Clearance Questions, please help!
kelbymcg posted a topic in Wheels, Tires, & TPMSHey guys (and gals), I'm new to this forum but I'm just looking for help on building my truck, Im 19 from Texas and its my first build. Anyways... Im looking to make my truck have a wide stance but I dont want it sky high, how high do I need to lift it in order to fit 33's (most likely A/T's but possibly M/T's) on 20x12's (most likely fuel octanes)? I know I could clear 33's with 20x10 easy with a small lift but the problem is that I want stance (hence the 20x12 rims) and that will not be as easily cleared, I dont want to trim a tremendous amount but I know some trimming will be necessary so what lifts (hights mainly but brand is cool to recommend too) would y'all reccomend? Also any tips for a beginner to watch for? Thanks!! Here are some pics of it currently

will a cadillac "escalade" wheel fit 06 Silverado
rog_ski posted a topic in Wheels, Tires, & TPMSGood Day folks I am looking at changing the look of my 06 regular cab silverado and would like to know if the cadillac "escalade" wheel will fit and clear the brakes and have the right offset for my truck. I know they are a 6 bolt wheel (see attached) and the tires are 265/65R18 which is the same size I currently have so the speedo would read the same. Would also like to know if anyone has these wheels installed any pictures would be appreciated. Thanks in advance
