Wide Tire Without Extra Height
Random question, and I know we all like to jack our trucks up to the highest we can go.
BUT - I'm not able to get into some parking garages for work because of it, I hate my skinny Bridgestone Dueller A/T's (265/65 R18)on Chevy rims.
I'd like to get a 12.5" wide tire but keep the height increase to a minimum.
Does such a tire exist and what are the dimensions that I need to be looking at?
I appreciate any help fellas!2012 Chevy Silverado Z71 4x4 5.3

The 305/60/r18 and 305/65/r18 cost more than regular 33's Damn why can't anything be cheap and easy?
Ya'll think I can fit a 305/65r18 on my 2012 z71 4x4 with a 2.5" RC lift without rub?

I rub at full lock with 305/60s with 2.5 lift front and rear. So I would think your going to rub a decent amount with a 305/65. But you can trim away the inner fender up front and see what happens

I think we have a similar setup NNBS 4x4 2.5" rough country lift, 18" chevy rims, so do the 305/60/R18 rub any other time besides full lock? I'm just trying to get the widest (quietest) tire I can fit without trimming. I want it as tall as I can without being an issue in parking garages when I get in the city.
