2014 Silverado LTZ crew cab 4x4
I recently put my rear air ride suspension on and waiting for my 3in motofab leveling kit to come in.
With the 3in kit up front what tire size can I go to now? Will I need a bigger rim? Do you have any pictures of stock rim with bigger/beefier tires? Do you have any pictures of larger rims with bigger ties?
Currently running stock rim with gy 275/55r20 all terrains
So, I have been having this sound coming from the front right wheel. I thought it was the wheel bearing but it doesn't really sound like it too much to me. I thought to maybe grease the fittings as well but I wanted to see if anyone else had experienced this problem before. Thanks! (Skip to the end for a better sound).

Hey everyone! I have been browsing the forums for about 6 months now and finally pulled the trigger on a 2020 RST about 3 weeks ago.
I am looking to get some black wheels with some all terrains before winter. I am leaning towards OEM black wheels of some type as I have had better luck with OEM wheels holding up to these Minnesota winters.
Does anyone have these 18" OEM wheels (84641199)? I would love to see these on a vehicle!
I was also thinking of finding a set of Trail Boss wheels but I don't care for the looks of those as much.
Lastly I found a few of these sets on Ebay, they appear to be my current wheels but in Black. I can't seem to find anywhere saying that these came from the factory in Black, but I think they look great!
Sorry for the long post. This has been a headache to try and find “factual” information on instead of “opinions”.
I have a 2019 Silverado work truck V-6 , 6 speed, with 3:42 gearing. I have a stock suspension. The 2019 work truck comes with three tire options From factory.
1. 17" 255/70R17 all-season, blackwall tires (my current tire)
2. 17" 265/65R17 all-terrain, blackwall tires
3. 17" LT265/70R17C all-terrain, blackwall tires
the Silverado Custom (with the same 3:42 gearing) comes with the following tire opens.
1.20” 275/60R20 all-season, blackwall tires
2. 20”275/60R20SL all-terrain, blackwall tires
3. 22” 275/50R22SL all-season, blackwall tires
My current truck has the 17” 255/70R17 all seasons. I love my truck, but I absolutely hate these tires/wheels. They look like baby wheels on a big truck. Way too much fender well free space. Looks like the truck missed “leg day“.
My question is if I purchase the OEM wheels and tires for the custom, is there any issue with them fitting my work truck? As far as I know both trucks have the exact same suspension, body clearance, control arms, wheel well clearance, etc.
I was looking at going with the 20”275/60R20SL all-terrain, blackwall tires.
The only changes that I could forsee that would happen are the following...
1. An increase in wheel diameter of current 31.1” increasing to 33”.
2.a width increase from 10” to 10.8”
3. A sidewall decrease from 7” to 6.5”
4. A revs/mile decrease from 650 to 612 (affecting speedometer speed by .058%)
5. A new effective gear ratio of 3.22:1
6. A change in tire run pressure from 35psi to 32psi. (Annoyingly setting of my TPMS “low pressure” alarm )
1.will these custom tires fit my work truck? I can’t Find any reason that they won’t
2. Will the dealer reprogram my speedometer for the percentage difference, and replacard/reprogram my ECM with the new psi setting to 32psi. (Not sure if they will since the Vin number of my truck does not include these tire size as “options“.) I really don’t want my low pressure alarm going off 24/7.
3. Will I noticed the change in new affective gear ratio from 3.42, to 3.22? (I’m assuming I won’t since it is the exact same gearing/tire size as the custom.
Man, there sure is a lot to changing a tire size. Almost doesn’t even seem worth the trouble. Am I going down a bad rabbit hole?
Just an FYI, I am not interested in lift kits, aftermarket speedometer programmers, etc. . Would like to stick OEM as much as possible.
Hey everyone - first post here and just bought a new-to-me 2014 Silverado 1500 LTZ Z71 all stock. This is also my first truck so I'm definitely a newbie and if I'm asking some simple questions I apologize, but I couldn't find the answers I was looking for on other topics.
Basically, what I'd like to do is level my pickup. I thought about doing maybe a small lift but I don't really want to fork out the money and I think the leveled Chevy looks just fine. Any recommendations for this? Seen people put on 2 or 2 1/2" level kits - difference between my wheel well heights is pretty much exactly 2 inches.
The other thing that I'm having more difficulty making sense of is a wheel and tire combo. Currently, I've got P265/65/R18 on it. What I'd like to do is get a bit more rugged look while also getting more ground clearance for a bit of offroading, and hopefully not affecting fuel economy and ride quality too much, but I understand you gotta sacrifice somewhere. What I'm having trouble understanding is if I should get larger wheels or taller tires to achieve the ground clearance part. I've read that getting larger wheels can mess with your speedometer and such. Any advice on if I should stick with my 18's right now, and if I end up buying new wheels one day should I also stick with 18's then?
If I went ahead and got my pickup leveled, which (or both) would help me get that better ground clearance? Increasing tires or wheels? What's the largest combo you'd recommend (with the level) that still prevents rubbing? Definitely want to get that rugged look but I haven't been able to determine which route to chase down, as the options seem limitless out there for what you can do. Could I just get bigger, more rugged, maybe wider tires to put on my stock 18's?
Thanks in advance to anyone willing to give a newbie some advice.
