I have a 2017 Silverado 2500HD, 2WD with stock LT265/60R20 tires and rims.
I been spending countless hours reading on this topic, and still seem unsure of the answers.
Ride quality is most important to us, so I would like to know what’s the best options to fit something like a Toyo AT2 Tire around 33” to 34” inches and 11” to 12” inches, maybe a 305/55-R20 ? Is their a better riding AT tire that last like the Toyo’s ?
would I be able to get a negative offset so I have some lip or deeper dish vs the hub moved more out?
I been reading positive offsets seem to fit a little Better with less rubbing issues?
i think a 33” tire by around 11” wide would be a great fit for a leveling kit?
last question, I was think of going max 2” leveling kit, but if I go with aftermarket keys, and shock extenders will it still be close or better then the factory ride? Can I add better shocks to help with the ride? Ride quality is really important to us. We don’t do much towing, Mostly highway/city driving, no off roading.
i had a 2015 2500HD with 33” tires , 11” wide , 2-1/2” Ready lift level kit, and positive offset, but the ride stiffened up allot . We sold the truck and bought the 2017.
I've been looking at pics, reading through threads for what seems like months now trying to come up with my upgraded tire/wheel setup...I'm close! Going from 22x9 rims with +24 offset on 285/45/22 .
This is what I want to change to (I currently have a 2.25" leveling kit):
Rims = 18x9 Fuel Maverick
Tires = 275/70/18 (Nitto Ridge or Falken AT3Wildpeak)
What I'm really stuck on is the offset. It's between -12 and +1. I really like the look of the -12, but live on a dirt road and am thinking about the tire sticking out more and kicking up rocks and dinging up the side panels every time I drive up and down my road...
Anyone with a similar setup that can offer any opinions? Those with the large negative offset are you constantly dinging up the paint whenever you hit the dirt?
I'd also be interested in opinions on the Nitto vs. Falken.
I am looking for a 20x. . . Setup to fit my stock 275/55s then when I wear them out I want to do 285/55s. I do not want to trim anything and do not want to rub at all. Not sure what offset to run. Looking at hostile alphas in either 20x9 or 20x10 . . . Can’t find a consistent answer to this question.
