    Default New Wheels and Tires for My Silverado!!

    Decided to bite the bullet and bought myself a new set of wheels. I ended up buying the XD series black "Hoss" wheel in a 20x9 size. The original plan was to use the stock LS-2 tires until the tread wore out but they are even worse when on a wider wheel so I bought nitto terra grapplers a week after. Below are some before and after pics for your viewing pleasure.

    Thanks. Man, ~250.00 a wheel was the cheapest I found them. Decided to go to a local wheel shop cause they also bought my stocks and included the mount/balance and TPMS rebuild.

    Nice choice! You will surely like the terra grapplers. I had this tire on my TJ and it performed well on most kinds of terrains.

    Thanks guys!

    @Karl- Yes, the terra grapplers are great on the highway but even better on dirt roads and the brush when I go fishing (especially when pulling a trailer). It's like night and day when compared to the stock tires. Glad I upgraded.

    Like em!
    I am looking at some KMC XD Diesels for my '07 Silverado but having a hard time determining what will fit.

    What offset are those?
    I see on tirerack they offer the 20x9 in either -12mm, +18mm, or +30mm.
