trying not to hijack this thread, but in looking at the KO2s, is it worth $80 to go up to a 275/60 over the factory 275/55?  It looks like Costco is running a promo on BFGs as well.  Trying to figure out if there's really any real benefit to just an 1" taller tire? 

i prefer an 18" rim on 4x4...having said that...for 20's i would recommend as much rubber as you can fit...more comfortable ride...

With money being the way it is, I decided to just go with the 275/55s and put the additional money towards an alignment after i get them installed.  i was also worried that Costco would freak out about installing a non oem listed size.

So here are after pic's.  I went with larger Toyo Open Country's on the stock rims.  I am really loving it, but may bump the back an inch.

Hi everyone! I don’t post a lot but have an important question? I see a lot of ppl saying 275/60r20 works fine with a stock a suspension (no rubbing). I have an 18 with a 2.5 level and just ordered some BFG kos 275/65/20.....answers seem to vary but should I expect an type of rubbing? Wheels are stock atm.

Nice setup!what offset are those rims? Any rub? I’m also looking at the Ready loft UCA. Question I have is how much offset should I run with 20” rims? Website says +6 with a 33” tire for no rub. Does that mean I can run less than +6 and be ok? Say 0 or -12. Appreciate any info.

I got +18 offset, I would say they stick out about 1-2” from the fenders, they do rub on the UCAs at full lock, (slightly) but they do not rub in the wheel wells, I also didn’t cut my bump stops, but I’m going to and I can get back to you if they still rub on the UCAs, I also want to try MotoFabs UCAs they’re brand new and made for their leveling kits, they might not rub on the UCAs

On my 2018 and when it was leveled, 2.25” level up front will allow a +18 offset wheel with 285/60/20 Nitto Ridge Grapplers without requiring new UCA’s but did require zip ties on the fender liner. I also replaced the rear 1” with a 2” and installed new Bilstein 5100’s. Looked good but Rode harsh.

Just added Suspension Maxx  1” leveling kit on my 2015 Denali. Still has some rake which is what I was looking for.

Used Bilsteins for 1.8" up front coupled with 275/60/20 Dura Tracs on my stock rims, really happy with the ride, MPG's with the cruise set at 88mph was terrible though....IMG_6432.thumb.jpg.1d73d84f23114695ca76405cc6f6d67c.jpg

Surely you expected crappy mileage though, right?  If you increased the tire size the speedo is off so you were doing well in excess of 90 MPH.  The leveling also raised the front end so now you have more air going underneath, which means more turbulence.  Couple that with a vehicle as aerodynamic as a cinder block and mileage is going to be in the toilet.
