  1. Just wondering if anyone knows what the largest tire is you could fit on an 18” rim on a 2019 Sierra with stock suspension? Currently it sits on the stock 265 65 r18’s. Wondering if 275 70 r18’s would fit perhaps?
  2. I searched for a thread that would provide some feedback on this, but did not find any actual comparison between the two tires. With that said, I would like to hear from those that have owned both of these tires and get their feedback. Could you tell a difference in ride quality? Did the R/T handle better? Did it wear down slower? Did your highway MPG improve? Once I lifted my truck, I put on 35x12.5x20 Toyo M/T tires, and in all honesty I really have no complaints. With that said, if the R/T is a more functional daily driver tire then I see no reason to not switch if the benefits are there. Appreciate any and all feedback.
  3. Selling some tps out of my 2015 Silverado. $60 shipped within the 48 states.
  4. Hey everyone, I have been reading through the forum and was going to post this in the “leveling kit” thread but like a lot of questions that have been asked I didn’t want it to get lost in the 475+ pages. I have a 2017 Silverado 1500 4x4 LT. I have been putting off installing a leveling kit till I needed tires and the time has come. I’m looking at the Eibach Pro Truck Kit with Rough Country 2” rear blocks. After reading the leveling kit kit tread I’m a little confused. I have the stock 20” High Country wheels on my truck and really like them. Can I go to a 275/60/20 or larger tire? I don’t want to do a leveling kit if I can’t get a larger tire ti fit and the rim rubs the upper control arm. Thanks for for all your help in advance.
  5. My truck has not been driven for four days and it's still parked at the very same spot. Just now, I tried the MyChevrolet app on my phone and I updated the Vehicle Information screen. The psi of the tires were 38, 37, 34, 35. Updated it... it shows 34, 35, 36, 38. Updated it a second later, it shows 36, 36, 35, 35 So in that one second I updated it, the numbers are different. It's not even windy outside and nobody is setting my truck on fire. Why is there a fluctuating discrepancy? I thought the second update could have been because it was checked a while ago, but when I clicked again, it changed. It's like playing the slot machine.
  6. So I've been looking for solid information on how much pressure to put in tires, when moving away from stock tire size or type ("P" vs LT, different load range, etc). I never found anything to-the-point, except I remember someone talking about using GVWR and max tire load to calculate pressure. And I can't even find that post anymore. Anyhow, I decided to make this from scratch: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/17gh6VmylZWld50XcLvPbQVRRQoRFUZNiqndHQ7jzTb8/edit?usp=sharing It doesn't mean that it's exactly the tire pressure you should use, but I guess it's a good start. I hope it might be useful. Cheers!

  8. Hey all, Forgive my lack of technical terms when I describe this but I have been having an issue with steering lately. Whenever I turn backwards to the right at full lock like I keep getting a rubbing noise and a clicking. It feels like the truck is fighting itself to go backwards and it feels like the tire is trying to roll under itself . After going out and checking by the right tire and as you see in the picture below I have rubbing in these two parts. I was wondering if it was possible that the center link had been put in backwards causing this part to be misaligned? The last owner of the truck redid the whole front end so nothing is original. Any tips are appreciated!
  9. Anyone noticed any feathering issues with the trucks when new? Started noticing some feathering around 750 miles on my eAssist with 4x4. Called a local dealer and they said they can only look at it, but couldn't do anything until at least 1500 miles to 2000 miles. Recommended that I take it back to where I purchased it from. I took it in yesterday, the service consultant said they can look at it, but they aren't supposed to touch it until around 8000 miles. I showed him the wear and told him by then, I will not have any tire left. So they agreed to take it in and check it out. Then when they were test driving, apparently an Audi turned into my front passenger wheel...anyway, long story short I have a loaner now that is not 4x4, but also eAssist with only 1700 miles. I noticed the same feathering issue, just not as bad as mine (probably weight related). Perhaps a batch came out of the factory with too much toe. Thoughts?
  10. I recently bought a 2016 Silverado 2500HD 2wd truck and I’m interested in dressing it up a little. Not a fan of the factory 17” steel wheels. I don’t think the size bothers me, they’re just ugly. I don’t have any plans to level it out, but I would like to fill the wheel well up better. I’m curious what would be the tallest and widest tire I could run on it with a 17”x8” wheel with a 00mm offset without experiencing rubbing or issues. The tires I plan on running will be the Falken Wildpeak AT3W. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!
  11. WTB 20" factory GM wheels for my 2015 Silverado. Tires aren't really an issue, because I'm looking to go oversized anyway. I have a 2" RC level kit, so I'm thinking a 285/55-20. Either way, I'm looking for a damage free set of 20" OEM wheels (preferably with working sensors). If you need a set of wheels in trade, I have a 17" set from my LT. They are in perfect condition and tires have 19k miles on them. I'm in middle TN, so I'd prefer to stay local-ish to avoid shipping, but I'm willing to drive a reasonable distance for the right deal.
  12. Hi guys, new here! I have done a lot of research trying find a TPMS reset tool that will actually work with the thicker mud tires. I bought one from Amazon, the JDiag model, which works fine on a friends 15' Silverado, but I can't get it to work on my 14' Sierra. The only thing I think is keeping it from working is the fact I have the BFG AT KO2's which are a much beefier tire. Has anyone had any luck resetting their sensors with this type of tire, or any other heavy duty tires like on the 2500/3500's? If you did, which reset tool did you use. I see a lot of people saying they can't reset their sensors, but now I wonder if the thicker tires is what's keeping us from doing so?
  13. If you put 3" in the front end (leveling/suspension) could you fit 285/70s on the stock z71 18" rims? I searched the forums and see lots of 285/65 (11.2" width) but when you get the 12.5 width people say rubbing is an issue so I figure the 285/70 give you an inch height but the same width as the 285/65. Or should you just go to 305/65? I've also read guys running 275/70 which is a half an inch shorter and thinner so I don't know if that means I'll be fine at 285/70r18 with a 3" lift to the front only or not. I want something that is going to fill the well but not rub, I just want more bang for my buck and if I am paying 700-1000 to swap the tires I want more than an inch. Anyone running 285/70 or 305/65 on stock z71 18s please feel free to post pictures, Thanks for the help!
  14. For all your questions on whether or nota certain tire will fit such with such lift and wheel combo, check out this website called custom offsets. They have videos of every lift and tire wheel combo u can think of. You can even search based on year of vehicle tire size etc. https://www.customwheeloffset.com/wheel-offset-gallery?page=1
  15. Hey everyone, I've owned lifted and lowered vehicles for years, but typically bought them way way. I've never actually done much of the customization myself. I know someone will say something like, try searching the site.....blah, blah, blah. Well, I have and there's so much good (and BS) information out there that it makes my head spin. Let me see if I can sum this up as quickly as possible. I have a 2016 Crew Cab 4x4 Silverado (deep ocean blue metallic) that I bought new last year. I had a leveling kit installed at the dealership (it was cheaper than the other places that I talked with), my truck came with 17's, which I absolutely hate. They're super tiny and look out of place. My plan is to upgrade to 20's and I want to put the largest tire that I can fit without rubbing. I've read about people putting 32, 33 & 34 inch tires on and claim that none of them rub. I'm not so confident about their claims. My other dilemma is that I do no like the look when the tires stick out several inches from the wheel well. That may be great for some people, but not for me. Ideally, I would like the tires to be flush with the wheel wells, but if they were to stick out a half an inch or so I would be ok with that. This is where we have to deal with backspacing. I'm sure that it is a simple concept, but it confuses me for some reason. A little bit too much, or too little, will make things look silly. I'm assuming that a 20x9 or 20x10 would be the best option, but I'm not sure. Let me know what you guys, and gals, think. Thanks in advance for your help.
  16. I'm new to the forum. I've been pouring over quite a few of the level lift threads and I've decided on the rough country 2.5 level lift for my 2014 Gmc Sierra 4x4 crew cab. I traded the factory 18s for a set of stock 20s off the All terrain editions. After reading a bunch, I've come to the conclusion I'm getting either a set of 275/65r20 tires or a set 305/55r20. I've seen a lot of good pics of the 305s bit not a whole ton of pictures of the 275s. I like the fact the 275s seem to fill the wheel wells better since they are taller, but I'm worried they won't look as good since they are a bit thinner tire. Anybody on here ran both sizes or seen both in person or have friends running these setups? It's a big purchase and I don't want to regret it afterwards. Opinions and pictures would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
  17. I purchased 4 GoodYear Wrangler DuraTrac Tires today in the OEM size on my truck - 275/55R20. At 20,000 miles I didn't like the look of the SRA's for the upcoming Ohio winter. Here are some photos. FYI - I drive my truck about 6,000 - 7,000 miles per year.
  18. Another quick video we shot. Very simple but sometimes the simple things are the best so lets get out there and rotate every 7500
  19. Looking for recommendations on tire/ wheel set up for my 2017 GMC Sierra Crew Cab, I will not be doing anything to the suspension ( no level or lift). I want to keep that stock for now. I have the chrome clad 20 inch wheel with the 275/55/20 tire. Thinking about black or black and chrome wheels and maybe running them on the Falkin Wildpeak AT3Ws. Any thoughts or suggestions? Attached is a pic of my truck, all stock right now.
  20. As the title states, I'm starting to research some lift kit options for an old 2003 Bow-Tie. It's an extended cab stock z71 off road package with brand new BFG 265/75r16 tires. What I'm attempting to get out of this forum is discussion from owners of similar models that have gone this route and can give me some personal experiences. There are many options for lifts, but my preference is to lift no more than 4" and most ideally, just a 2" or 3" lift. I don't really want a leveling kit, but am open to suggestions from all areas. If I were to rank my vehicle knowledge, I would place myself as a 4/10. Possible lift options Zone 2" lift Rough Country Leveling Kit I'd also like an explanation on torsion keys vs suspension lifts (I don't plan on doing a suspension lift) so that I have a better understanding of what to expect to be careful with. I know torsion keys are going to extend the depth of the suspension and cause the shocks to not be able to travel as far, but I'd accept a rougher ride as a sacrifice for running bigger tires and having higher clearance. Here are some pictures of the truck I've bought (no I didn't pay the sticker price). Thanks guys
  21. I've recently put 305/55r20 bfg ko2 tires on my 2014 silverado double cab 1500 with a 2" front level . I messaged BFG twice and got two VERY different answers when asking the exact same question and telling them my oem tire size/recommended pressure. One rep told me 50 psi and another told me 35 psi. The fact that I got two drastically different responses when giving the exact same question:supporting information, doesn't exactly make me want to trust their answers. I would think most 305/55/20 LT E load tires would have similar (probably not identical, but close enough to get a good ballpark number) load/per psi. I'm wanting to know what others have their 305/55r20 LT E load tires at to experience even/longer term wear. I've currently got mine at about 42 cold, and they seem to go to about 46 warm. It looks like the outside may be wearing a bit prematurely. But the BFG KO2 design may just be weird in that the outside of the tire's "base" of the tread seems to raise up. Any info would be greatly appreciated.
  22. I’ll try to keep this short and sweet. I have a 2014 Sierra 1500 4x4 (Crew Cab, SLT, Z71, blah, blah, blah) with 3:42 gears. I’m running stock rubber. 275/55 R 20. I believe these are 31.9 inch tall tires. My plan is to lift my truck and tune it as soon as I hit 36,000 miles. I want to run 35’s after I get my 6 inch lift installed. I found this calculator. http://www.4lo.com/calc/geartire.php I’ve been pretty obsessed with it and the numbers it’s giving me since I found it. If I want to run a 35 inch tire, my current tire size is 31.9, and I have 3.42 gears front and rear, to keep the same gear ratios, I’d need a 3.75:1 axle ratio. Which is pretty close to 3.73. Catch my drift? I know I’ll never get the acceleration and fuel economy back after taller and heavier tires, but shouldn’t my truck be pretty close in drivability and at least in the same ball park with stock fuel economy and acceleration if I were to install some 3.73 gears at the same time as I installed the tires? Someone out there has to have done this same swap with this setup. Just curious about the results.

  24. Wanted opinions on these wheels/tires. Are they worth $900.00. These are local to me so no shipping. Thoughts? 20" 2016 GMC Sierra 1500 SLT wheels & tires for sale (4 wheels/tires). 2,400 miles on them. TPMS sensors are included with wheels. One wheel has minor curb rash in 2 places. Looking to have a second set of wheels identical to the ones on my '14 and install aggressive tires for winter. What could I get for the 4 GoodYear SRA tires?
  25. Hi guys, Got a 2016 Sierra 1500 All Terrain X, all stock, no level. I don't understand much about wheel and tire dimensions, wheel offset, etc. I need advice on a wheel combo I have seen on Dodge Ram that looked sick. Will this wheel and tire combo fit each other? What offset do I need? I don't mind if it sticks out past the fenders a bit. Do I need a level? Front only? Front and back? Shock/body level? Can I get away with no level? What other questions should I be asking? Found the specs here https://www.wheel-size.com/size/gmc/sierra-1500/2016/#trim-53i-usdm Truck Bolt Pattern: 6/139.7mm (6/5.5in) Offset: 24mm What I found.
