Anyone running a 295/70 on a 17x8.5 0 offset wheel (Method) on stock suspension? Looks like it would fit, but any comments would be welcomed. 

17x9 with -12mm offset and 295/70's. I had to trim the mudflaps fo it didn't rub anymore.

I have a 2020 rst Silverado 1500 I just put a three inch level in and I just ordered 35 11.5 20 Nitto trail grapplers will I clear the upper control arm or will I need spacers? Everything I’ve seen with that size tire is on either a 2 or 2.5 inch level and they say everything clears with maybe some minor rubbing on fender liners will this be the same with the 3 inch leveling kit would really appreciate an answer to this question. Thank you.

What aftermarket brand control arms did you switch to?

Everything is stock other than leveling kit 

I’m surprised that you didn’t need to change your Upper Control Arms since I’ve always been told that the OEM control arms need to be changed whenever you raise the front over 2” or more.

Regardless, I think an 11.5” tire should be fine without hitting anything.  I can only tell you that my 12.5” tire on a 20 x 9 rim with a 0 offset, needed a 1/2” spacer so it didn’t hit the aftermarket control arm.  Hopefully someone else can chime in.

Yea that’s what I’m hoping I have buddy in a bunch of truck groups and all that and he was telling me he knew someone that went with a 35 by 12.5 and needed like a .25 spacer to clear with a level on a gmc I believe it was but like I said everything I saw people have 2 or 2.5 and seem to not have issues so I’m hoping it’s the same for a 3

If it does fit on there without rubbing depending on how close it is I may still get spacers just to give it a little more clearance on the uca


I think the angle of the OEM Upper control arm on a 3” Leveling Kit is gonna be an issue.  And if it is an issue, I think I’ve seen it where it just gives out without warning and the whole tire buckles while driving.  I’d look into that a little more rather than rolling the dice.

You don't HAVE to, but he WILL NEED TO once the ball joints fail.
