So I currently have a 2009 Silverado 1500 with 285/65R18 tires and 18/8.5 wheels with a 2in leveling kit. Im wanting to lift it and get some bigger tires without having to buy new wheels since mine are about a year old. Would a 6in lift and 35s look stupid since the wheels are smaller?
Never been much of a truck guy and always been into more performance orientated vehicles but I really liked the looks of this generation and trim and one came up that was optioned perfectly and I made a lowball offer that they accepted so I now own a truck. I am very much a car guy and have a few vehicles/projects. As such I didn't really plan on modding the truck at all but obviously that did not happen. However I don't plan on doing any real performance mods to it and most mods I've done to date have cost <100$.
The truck right after I purchased it before anything was ever done to it.
So I have a 04 Silverado crew cab z71 4wd. I have a 2.5 inch lift, cold air intake, and 285/70/17 mud tires. I’m looking to turn my truck into a little bit more of a power house. I plan on getting all new spark plugs (need help with which spark plugs) and a whole new exhaust from the headers back. (Also need help finding that). I’m trying to get the most performance out of these upgrades as I can as I am getting a inTune i3 8245 Platinum + Custom DiabLew Tune as soon as I decide what spark plugs, and full exhaust system I plan on getting. I want the most performance I can get out of these upgrades.

Wards has named the General Motors 6.2-liter V8 engine with Dynamic Fuel Management (DFM) to its 2019 Wards 10 Best Engines Award list.
“General Motors’ thundering 420-horsepower V-8 in the Silverado exemplifies how engineers continue to find ways to improve efficiency without giving up something in return. DFM determines 80 times per second exactly how many cylinders require fuel to meet power demands. And, incredibly, it uses as few as two cylinders to propel the full-size pickup down the highway,” says Wards' Senior Content Director Drew Winter. “The truly amazing part is the cylinder deactivation is imperceptible, so seamless that the only thing the driver notices is fewer stops at the pump."
Coincidental to the award, GM-Trucks.com has just taken delivery of a long-term tester with this very engine.
“Chevrolet first introduced its Active Fuel Management cylinder deactivation system in 2005, and Dynamic Fuel Management is a natural progression of the technology,” said Jordan Lee, Small Block chief engineer. “Dynamic Fuel Management enables only the cylinders needed to deliver the power you want, seamlessly delivering the best balance of power and fuel economy.”
The full list of Wards' 10 best engines is as follows:
3.0L (B58) DOHC Turbocharged I-6 (BMW X5)
6.2L OHV V-8 with DFM (Chevrolet Silverado)
5.0L DOHC V-8 (Ford Mustang GT/Bullitt)
3.0L DOHC TurboDiesel V-6 (Ford F-150)
2.0L DOHC Atkinson i-VTEC 4-Cyl./HEV (Honda Accord Hybrid)
