    Default What size wheel will work 2008 Silverado 1500 Z71???

    I recently purchased a set of the Mickey Thompson Baja MTZ 33x12.5x17 tires. The question that I have is what rims will work on a 2008 Silverado 1500 Z71 with the 2.5" leveling kit? Trying to figure out the offset and backspacing is a chore even on the internet. Any help would be great!!

    Thanks

    With 33's you'll have to stick to the same size of your stock rims, like 8" wide and basically zero offset or positive offset.

    The 20" wheels (275/55/R20) that GM uses are 32" tall, so 1 more inch probably isn't going to be a deal breaker.

    Thanks for the help. I ordered the XD Hoss wheels with a +18 Offset.

    The offset is on mine are -10. They're mounted to 285/70R17 AT's. I have a 2" leveling kit and I had to trim the inner wheel wells. I didn't have to remove much but it would have destroyed my tires if I didn't.

    Sometimes the best part of my job is that my chair swivels.
