I have a 2015 Chevy Silverado 1500 with 20x9 zero offset fuel wheels. I recently slapped a 3.5 inch suspension lift. I was running a 275/60/20 bfg ko2 tire on 1.5 inch leveling kit previously. I’m now trying to figure what’s the biggest tire I can get. I don’t want to go 12.5 wide bc id rather increase in diameter. I’m looking to run at 285/65/20, 285/60/20, 275/65/20 ridge grappler or ko2. The 275/65/20 will fit with no ruB I think but I want To go bigger than that, I’m thinking both the 285/65/20 will require a little bit of cutting of liner. Ideally I want the 285/85/20, is there anyone running this same size tire on 3.5 inch lift?
I currently have stock wrangler duratrac tires on my Chevy Silverado 1500 and they need to be replaced soon. Does anyone have any other recommendations on tire brands? Tire noise is not a problem for me. The size of my current tires are 265 65r18. Any help is appreciated
07/12/2020 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.
