I have a 2011 Silverado single cab Z71 4x4. I’ve had it just about 2 years now. I’m currently running 285/70R17 tires. The guy I bought it from told me it had a 1.5 inch leveling kit on it, but I don’t see any kind of spacer on the front coil or anything of that nature. I’m looking to buy a set of 20x10 wheels and 33x12.50 tires. I want to know if anyone is running this set up, if it scrubs, any recommendations really. Also my truck definitely looks like it sets taller than my roommates 2013 does. I appreciate the help in advance.
Well guys, it finally happened with the 2019's coming out and all these dealers trying to move their new and used 18's I broke down and upgraded my 2014 GMC 1500 to a Certified 2018 Silverado 1500 LTZ Z71 w/ only 2700 miles! I am pretty excited about it, she's bone stock and she won't last that way for long.
Going from 35's to stocks is going to be quite the transition at first, but don't fret! There are changes coming soon and I figured I would track my build right here, hope y'all will enjoy!
It already started yesterday as I did some research and discovered my K & N cai will fit on the 2018, so I pulled that off and put the stock intake back on, also took the hidden light bar out of the grill, and of course took my good ole trusty tool box off (this will be truck number 5 for the tool box!). I placed an order just a few minutes ago and there are more goodies coming soon!
Please let me know if y'all have any comments, ideas, or questions!
Came across some great content on YouTube about the the truck. I have been watching TFL for a long time, but this guy has been putting out much better and more informative videos so far. His channel is Pickup Truck And SUV Talk. I am in no way affiliated with this channel; I just enjoyed his videos.
Looking to "beef" up my 2017 Chevrolet Silverado LTZ with more aggressive tires and a leveling kit. I met with my tire guy the other day and we looked at the BF Goodrich AT KO's, 275/60/20 with a 2.5" leveling kit (back 1"). So first things first, I'm not a gear head, that's why I'm here. Not a complete moron, and know enough to be dangerous, but I need advice.
I've read threads on here about different size tires, stock rims vs not stock, spacers, tying back anything that rubs with zip ties....at this point I'm not sure what to do.
So that said, as I mentioned above, my truck is a 2017 Chevrolet Silverado LTZ 4x4. I plan on keeping the stock 20" alloys that came on it and prefer not to lift it, or add wheel spacers etc if necessary. Full disclosure, I have seen some pics with guys running the BF Goodrich AT KO's in 285/65/20 and their trucks look pretty sweet and they claim to only have added a leveling kit.
The issue that concerns me is when they talk about slight or minimal rubbing at full lock and some have even used tie wraps to tie back the fender liner to prevent this. I'm not sure how I feel about cutting a slit and tie wrapping anything on my truck to make it work...makes me uneasy.
If I had my choice, and could be assured I wouldn't have rubbing issues, I would def go with the 285 look over the 275's but won't lie it's a concern.
I've been looking at the BF's obviously, but have also looked at Toyo's and Nitto's...thought about Mickey's but not sure about the $ tag.
Tire wear is a concern too, but I also understand an A/T is well, an A/T tire. Still would like to have good wear though if possible.
In a nutshell....I def want to level my truck, but my ultimate goal is simply to put a set of tires on my truck that make it look beefier and meaner without having to put a 6" or 8" lift on it etc...
