New shoes/Torsion bar 2018 Chev 1500

Recommended Posts

Looking at putting either the Nitto Ridge Grabber 35x12.5R/20 or the 295/65R/20 on my 2018 Chev Silverado. I currently have the BFG KO2 AT 275/65R/20 on there with a Rough Country Leveling kit 2.5 front/1 rear. 

 

I'm trying to keep from putting a differ kit/lift on the truck. Is this possible?

 

Thanks for your help and advice in advance!!

Not possible because you don't have a torsion bar.

35"s on just a level?  I think you need an actual lift.  Like 4-6 inch lift.  I can see 33"s clearing with a level, 35"s sound like a rub fest on a level.

Yep... 6 inch minimum to run 35's I'd say. Even with a 2.5 inch level, 33's might rub depending on width and wheel offset. I ran 295/70 r17's (33x11.5) with a 17x8 -0 and they rubbed pretty good at full lock.

You can get away with a 4" and the right backspacing but you'll have a bad time haha.

What about a 295/60/20 (34") in the Ridge Grapplers or the 285/65/20 (34.5") in the KO2. I would prefer not to lift it anymore. Thanks again for advice!

I run 285/70/R17 which is 32.8" - 33" tire depending on who makes the tire, air pressure, etc.

 

These fit fine and didn't rub but were close stock. I added bilstien 5100 shocks to lift the front 1.85" and now have plenty of room.

 

Rim offset makes a big difference in rubbing. Keep offset close to stock to minimize rub.

 

35" definitely need 4" of lift or more.
