Age old question Tire Size 22's or 24's

Recommended Posts

I have an age old question for everybody.  I have a 2015 Silverado w/Z71 package currently running on stock 18's.  I want to upgrade to bigger wheels and tires preferably 22's or 24's.  I know the biggest stock setup is 22's.  My question is for anyone that has upgraded to 24's or just knows from general knowledge, if i go with 24's will I have to upgrade things like calibers, rotors, recalibrate my speedometer or anything else that i'll have to do by choosing 24's.  I've heard so much i decided to ask in the forum to see if anybody can share their experiences/knowledge.  I don't have any lifts not even a level kit yet but I plan on getting the level done soon as well in the front.  From everything I've read i know 24's will fit i'm just concerned about any additional parts/maintenance they would require.  Thanks!

If you put bigger diameter wheels on, the tires will be super short on the sidewalls to make it the same size diameter. Unsure what you are asking. The bigger wheel won't hit anything if it's the same width.

You mean downgrade to 24's?  I've had 24's and they ride terrible.  20's, a tad small,  22's look good and still have a nice ride.  As for fitment, it's not the wheel size but the o.d. of the tire.  You can have a 20", 22" and a 24" wheel with the same tire o.d.   You will have more wheel and less sidewall.  I'd go 22.
