  1. Is anyone running larger than stock tires on a new 6.6 gas 2500 or 3500? Interested in learning about what kind of hit your mpg took if so, and would love to hear any feedback on your setup.
  2. Hey 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?
  3. Just wondering if theres much rubbing with 33s that are 11.5 wide.
  4. Hey guys, After many many hours of forum reading and trying to find a answer for a problem like mine I've finally given up and decided to just ask. I've got a 2001 Silverado 1500 LS 2wd with the 5.3L. We were driving down a back road the other day and to simply say that it was muddy would be a huge understatement. Had I not know better I wouldn't have believed it was an actual road and not a trail. The mud was so deep that it reached clay in spots and we basically snowplowed mud with the front bumper. After making it back to the highway we went to go accelerate only to be bounced around wildly and were unable to go much faster than 80km/h due to a random and sudden lack of 3rd gear and overdrive. Limped the truck home and did a transmission fluid and filter change the next day. Fluid was filthier than heck, dark dark brown in color sort of like Cola. After that now the truck sometimes finds 3rd but 4th is nowhere to be found and once you get over about 70km/h it shakes so hard it feels like the worst washboard despite doing our best to get all the mud out of the wheels. Reverse still works fine. Looked under the truck and there does appear to be a bent crossmember but the frame still looks fine and straight. Some backstory; Never had any transmission problems before this or signs of slipping. The tires on the truck are oversized, from a stock 245/75r16 to running 275/70r17. At present there are no rear brakes, had a bolt on the caliper come off one day and long story short ended up disconnecting them and pinching off the lines for the back brakes. We also have kids who like to play driving and occasionally jerk on the shifter, one day our toddler somehow manged to get the truck out of drive without hitting the brake and it started rolling, it didn't go very far before I stopped it but nevertheless was certainly surprising. So my question is; what could be causing this to happen? Is the transmission completely gone and if so why no warning signs? Could it be the 3/4 clutch pack, the shift cable, transmission mounts or something else? Any input would be appreciated!
  5. I have a 2015 GMC 6.6 2500HD Denali 4x4 leveled out. I currently have 305/45/22 tires, they do not rub! I'm hoping that the new set of tires I just purchased will Not rub... 33x12.50x22 If anyone has any insight please respond
  6. Trying to find out if I can fit the stock wheels and tires from a 2020 GMC Sierra Denali 2500hd on my 2016 GMC Sierra 2500hd with stock suspension. I know the bolt pattern is the same and based on what I have seen on the forums the 275/60R20 tire will fit with stock 2016 wheels without rubbing but I'm concerned the slight difference in offset from 44mm on the 2016 wheels to the 47mm on the 2020 wheels will be an issue. Has anyone tried this yet?
  7. Hey everyone - first post here and just bought a new-to-me 2014 Silverado 1500 LTZ Z71 all stock. This is also my first truck so I'm definitely a newbie and if I'm asking some simple questions I apologize, but I couldn't find the answers I was looking for on other topics. Basically, what I'd like to do is level my pickup. I thought about doing maybe a small lift but I don't really want to fork out the money and I think the leveled Chevy looks just fine. Any recommendations for this? Seen people put on 2 or 2 1/2" level kits - difference between my wheel well heights is pretty much exactly 2 inches. The other thing that I'm having more difficulty making sense of is a wheel and tire combo. Currently, I've got P265/65/R18 on it. What I'd like to do is get a bit more rugged look while also getting more ground clearance for a bit of offroading, and hopefully not affecting fuel economy and ride quality too much, but I understand you gotta sacrifice somewhere. What I'm having trouble understanding is if I should get larger wheels or taller tires to achieve the ground clearance part. I've read that getting larger wheels can mess with your speedometer and such. Any advice on if I should stick with my 18's right now, and if I end up buying new wheels one day should I also stick with 18's then? If I went ahead and got my pickup leveled, which (or both) would help me get that better ground clearance? Increasing tires or wheels? What's the largest combo you'd recommend (with the level) that still prevents rubbing? Definitely want to get that rugged look but I haven't been able to determine which route to chase down, as the options seem limitless out there for what you can do. Could I just get bigger, more rugged, maybe wider tires to put on my stock 18's? Thanks in advance to anyone willing to give a newbie some advice.
  8. Good morning everyone...I am looking at replacement tires for 2019 Yukon XL...this is my wife's vehicle and she has absolutely no desire to get all terrain tires (nor do I want her too)...I am a believer of putting as much (within reason) rubber as possible on a rim for the best ride possible. curious if anyone has replaced their tires for a larger size, how large have you gone without rubbing and looking ridiculous? these will be all season highway tires (Michelin Defenders probably) on the stock 18" rims... second part is, if you have gotten a larger tire, was the ROI worth it? I am assuming the larger tires will be more expensive...was it worth it over the normal stock size tire price? did it ride better or wear better? Hope this makes sense...not looking to go crazy just a size or to larger (an inch or so taller and an inch or so wider)... thoughts?
  9. I understand there are lots of tire threads on here as I have been through most of them on this forum, I am simply looking for anybody who might be running 285/65/18 Cooper Discoverer XLT's on a non leveled completely stock 14-18 Silverado? The tire size is only slightly bigger than what would be on the 285/45/22 option Chevy offers in these years so I am just looking to see if there is anyone out there who can confirm this setup would work. https://tiresize.com/comparison/
  10. I was just curious as to whether people ran spacers after they did their lifts. I have read that you need a 1.5" spacer on the rear after adding a 4.5" lift to compensate for the front track width being wider.
  11. Planning on leveling my 2018 GMC Sierra 1500 with the MotoFab front 3" and rear 2" leveling kit. Planning on fitting 33" inch tires on my truck after. Trying to decide if I want 18" wheel rims or 20" wheel rims.. so if you could post pics of your trucks that would be great. Thanks!
  12. Planning on leveling my 2018 GMC Sierra 1500 SLE with the 3” front 2” rear MOTOFAB leveling kit. Currently have stock wheels/tires on it which are 255/70R17. Thinking about jumping up to 18” wheels instead but wanted to know how much of a difference the 17” to 18” jump would make in appearance. I was able to find plenty of pictures with 18” wheels but are there any photos out there of leveled /lifted trucks with 17” rims?
  13. Looking to upgrade the stock wheels and tires on my '19 Sierra 1500 (extended cab, 4WD). I can get away with just blocks if I go with 33" tires, but need a lift if I go to the 35" tires. I don't want rubbing...but also don't want to get too aggressive on the lift. It is suggested that I go with a 6" lift. I don't do any offloading and I'm not trying to "act" like I do. I just love the look of the bigger whee/tire on this truck. Looking for suggestions from those who went with the 33" tire vs the 35" tire and what size lift you used (if you went with the 35" tire). Just throwing this out there so I can get some feedback from those who have already "figured it out." Thanks all!
  14. So I'm getting a leveling kit installed on my truck soon and thinking about running 33x12.55R20. Anyone running 33's and how does your shift points feel? Also is anyone making an exhaust for the 3.0 duramax or a tuner? Any information will help.
  15. I know there must already be a topic out there floating around about this but I figured I would ask. I am currently running a 2" RC level on a 2016 All-Terrain with the stock 20 "All-Terrain rims and have been looking at tires. I want a little more ground clearance on the truck too. I was hoping to run a 34" but then I am curious as how a leveled will look with a 34" tire. Does anyone have that or is running that? If so can you post a picture. Secondly if it won't fit I was thinking about throwing a 4" LIFT in and running a 34". Does anyone have any experience with that? Or running that setup? Any tips or information is helpful. Thank you in advance!
  16. I have a 2019 Silverado LT RWD. Put on a 2in rough country level kit with 295/60/20 Nitro Terra Grappler G2 on the stock rims. There is no rub at all! All clear pulling in and out of the driveway and at full lock! It was close at discount tire when they did the test fit but it worked. The only issue I have is after my alignment my steering wheel is a little off center to the right. Not bad but annoying on a brand new truck. They realigned it 4 times and came close but no luck getting it exactly centered. I gave up. The truck drives straight though.
  17. Information on Vibration Analysis and Diagnostic 2014/2015 Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra This seems to be a vibration campaign that has been around since January 2015. I have seen many complaints on different forums about this issue. I also have a vibration/harmonics issue that is not there all of the time but most. My issue seems to be centered around the V4 decel, and body mount configuration. This link is filled with a ton of information about various causes and repairs many of the 2014/2015 GM truck owners are experiencing. Some may be experiencing a combination of more than one issue at a time. Many more may not be experiencing any vibration at all. I do believe for those folks with the "Cadillac ride" its only a matter of time before they start experiencing vibration/harmonics issues. Its kinda nice to get this information out so that GM can streamline the repair process even further. If enough of these trucks show up for repair request for vibration they may even send out letters to further enhance quality control. http://oemdtc.com/6392/information-on-vibration-analysis-and-diagnostic-2014-2015-chevrolet-silverado-gmc-sierra/3 If link does not work copy and past in your browser.
  18. Have the 6.2/10 speed AT4 with 18" duratracs. Will be doing a trip from Edmonton, AB to Halifax, NS and back, or Edmonton to Halifax to Florida, back to Edmonton this summer. Was thinking about swapping to some sort of highway tires and curious of what kind of fuel economy improvement ill see over the duratrac AT tires.
  19. From what I can tell by searching this is either a series 27 or 50. Actually the wheels look identical to me so I’m not sure what the difference is between the 2 series. From what I can tell this wheel has been discontinued and it is not in my budget to buy 5 new wheels!!! My question is does it have to be a fancy wheel? I don’t know much about these lifts and wheels and offsets but can I just buy a cheap steel wheel that will fit and throw a tire on it? Mickey Thompson 35x12x20 ATZP3
  20. I'm looking at a 2015 1500 with a 4.3, 3.42 gears. I would add a leveling kit with 33x12.5s. What should I be expecting for gas mileage? Would a 5.3 get better MPG with the lift/tires? What is your current tire/lift/engine/mpg? I tried the search feature but couldn't find a ton of what I was looking for.
  21. 4 Barely used Nitto Terra Grappler G2’s, 12/32 tread left, brand new they have 13/32 tread, have about 6,000 miles on them, no holes, no patches, no curb rash. They still have the hairs on the sidewall! I lifted my truck and bought the same tire in a bigger size. My loss your gain. New on Discount Tire they are $1,384.00 plus tax, asking $1,050.00 for the set. I will not sell separately. Cash only, local pick up only. Located in NJ
  22. Hello Everyone! I am a relative new member who just leased a 2019 Silverado RST 4x4 at the end of November. It is my first pick up truck and I love it so far. The truck came with the stock 18 inch wheels with Michelin Primacy LTX 265/65R18 tires. The tires have been great on the highway but I have had some slight issues already in the snow and ice. I am relatively new to All terrain tires but I would like to swap my tires for a mild all terrain. I was also thinking of going up a tire size, maybe to a 275/65R18 or a 275/70R18. Would going to a 275 tires cause an issues for the stock suspension or my speedometer? Should I just upgrade to an all terrain and stay at the 265 size? I am going to be mostly driving on the highway and around town. But I will be driving in the snow and ice during the winter months. I would also be towing a pop up camper / possibly driving the truck on gravel / dirt but no serious off roading. From my research I am considering the Nitto Terra Grappler G2's, the Falken WildPeak AT3W and the Toyo Open Country A/T2. If anyone could provide any advice or information I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you ahead of time.
  23. Looking to get another wheel and tire set up. So I’m selling my 24in reps. They have about 12-13k miles on them. Been on the truck for a little over a year. Have plenty tread left. No curb damage, and wheels are properly maintained. Asking 1800.00 OBO. Included; TPM sensors, lug bolts and wheel locks, black center caps, and chrome center caps. Feel free to message me with any question. I’m in Destin, Fl. Will consider traveling within reason. Could possibly ship at buyers expense. Thanks
  24. Hey All, As the title states, it's about time for new tires on my 2017 GMC Sierra 1500 SLT Z-71. It is bone stock and I will likely keep it that way, for now. The Goodyear Wrangler SR-A tires have been serviceable, but I will not go back with them. Looking for All-Terrains with a decent tread pattern, load rating, and relatively quiet. I know that a lot of folks like the BFG T/A KO's and I had them on a previous truck and they did not do well. Heavy, loud, always out of balance and ride quality was poor in my experience. They look great, though. I replaced those with Cooper Discovery AT3's and was pleased. I have not seen many GMC's with those tires? I am looking for 275/55-20 and would like to stay under $1k, but closer to $800. I drive mostly on paved roads, spend most of the 3 month hunting season on dirt/gravel roads, and occasionally tow a 24' bay boat (~4k lbs loaded down) Advice, input, experience, and pics are much appreciated! Thanks in advance!
  25. Hey, so I installed larger 33" tires and had to remove the splash guard as it was causing some rubbing. Anyone know where I could get some plugs to fill in these holes that the splash guards left? Thanks!
