My first post here, I tried search but found no results, so here is my question:
Is anyone running 17" wheels on a lifted 2015+ GM SUV? Wondering about any brake clearance issues, etc.
I see that the spare is on a 17" rim, so with the stock steering knuckle and brakes they obviously work. But what about with the replacement knuckle of a 6" lift?
I currently have a 1990 V2500 Suburban 4x4 that I have owned for the last 22 years, and I am finally ready to go newer.
I am looking at getting a 2016+ Yukon XL Denali. I plan to add a 6" lift and 35" tires.
My experience with tire and wheels is that in general, the more sidewall, the better the ride and the more flexibility in airing down for four wheeling.
Plus I'm an old guy and not a huge fan of the look of giant wheels with what amounts to a big rubber band of a tire on a 4x4.
And after reading all the complaints about noise / buffeting / thumping / vibrations on this newer K2xx platform, I want to minimize that too.
So I am thinking of 17" rims with 35/12.50/17 or 315/70/17 tires, and would like to confirm somebody has run one of these combinations on a 6" lift.
Thanks in advance!
I am buying new tires and have read nothing but good things about the Nitto Ridge Grapplers (35x12.5x20). I decide that there is no downside to trying them out, and start the process to buy them and notice the only come in an F rated 12 ply. Is anyone else running this tire on a 1500? How is the ride on it? Also what PSI are you running the tire at.
I believe the 35x12.5x18 Ridge Grappler is F rated as well.
