wheel/tire lift help
1994 silverado 1500 4x4....can't afford a lift and couldn't figure out the wheel/tire chart cuz I'm an idiot or something lol anyways...the leveling kit by readylift says 33" tires will work....is that possible? after reading about gearing changes for bigger tires I'm not sure about any bigger than that anyways because 4:56 gears in a daily driver chevrolet silverado sounds bad...I need alittle MPG
I would think that you should be able to run 33's w/o a lift and it shouldn't need a gear change. If you wanted to go with larger tires, 35's or 37''s, you would want to consider gear changes. You may loose a little mileage with the 33's, but it should be minimal.
My truck is my daily driver...I have 4.56s, and it IMPROVED my MPG, but then again I am running 35s.
Don't fear the gear!!!!
run a 285/75R16 with the leveling kit and you really dont need to spend your money on gear with only 33's. you may only lose an MPG or 2 depending on what tires you get
