Post your T1 wheel/tire setup


Recommended Posts

I couldn't remember if I posted on this thread. 

 

I installed the Eibach Pro 2.0 kit on my 2019 Silverado.  It wasn't to bad to accomplish.  I also installed Cogneto upper control arms and Trail Boss Axles while I was at it.  The ride is so much better and no more bouncy, bouncy over speed bumps or bottoming out.

The wheels are Motiv 427MB Gloss Black w/ Machined Face Accents Wheels  18"x 9" with +19 offset.  The tires are Toyo Open Country ATIII's 285/70-18.

No rubbing at all.  I also installed a 2" block in the back.  I enjoy driving the truck that much more now that it rides so much better than stock.

Happen to have part number for Trail Boss Axles?  What value does this add just asking, worth it?  I have the Eibach Level 1 kit, RC Control Arms been sitting in the garage since april. Need to find a free weekend....and oh and new tires too...got some wheels collecting dust.

My reasoning for the Trail Boss axles is if GM has them on the Trail Boss with the 2" lift, then there must be a reason for it.  Nobody can tell me why, but when I put them side by side my original axles, you can see the TB axles are a little shorter. Not sure if this has a major effect on the geometry or not so I figured to go that route.  Plus if you purchase the GM Trail Boss lift, it comes with the axles.  Again, if they were not needed then GM wouldn't offer them.  The part number for them is 87862071

My uncle is manager at the local chevy dealer and when i inquired about the trail boss lift asking why to alot of the same questions he informed me that in fact the geometry does change and the axles are actually suppose to be longer to keep them in place better. if you use the stock ones it would be fine and probably never have a issue but might as well like you said if it comes with it!

Brink wheels B103 20x9 with BFG K02 285/60/20.  Fox coilovers for level.  They come with black center caps with the Brink logo, I hated the look so I painted them and put a bowtie decal there.  I'm really just MEH on these wheels, might change them up.

Does anyone know what the stock tires are in the LT 4x4? I know they are Goodyear Wranglers but can’t seem to find the model.

 

i had a loaner while mine was in the shop. Instantly liked the tires but, like a

moron, I forgot to write down the model. 

There's only about 30 different models of Goodyear Wrangler tires out there. The most recent I've seen used are TrailRunner AT's.

 Looking for new summer tires and looking at Toyo Proxes III’s or Hankook Ventus ST in 305/45/22. Replacing Pirelli Scorpion Verde in a 285/45 22.
 

Will do occasional towing of a boat. Truck does not go off-road and these are only for summer driving. 

 

Toyo appears to have a stiffer sidewall and better traction from what I can tell.

 

Any recommendations between the two and if so, why?

 

Thank you in advance. When I went to my local discount tire all I got was the Toyo is less expensive.
