    Curious why everyone is going to larger 20" rims. I kinda like the 18's I have now. Will have to check selection.

    I don't care if someone puts a 72" lift or wants to use leveling kits on every vehicle they own. They can do what they want.

    The OP asked for an opinion so I gave it to them. If the OP does not like my opinion, they are free to ignore it.

    On the 2014 Silverado 2500HD (LTZ package) there are 2 rims, an 18" and a 20". According to the owners manual, the 18s or 20s make no bearing on the tow rating.

    Since you asked for our opinions, my opinion is to leave the truck as stock as possible if you are going to use it for heavy towing.

    If you decide to put a huge lift, huge tires, leveling kit, etc., that's your decision.

    No problem, I was not offended in any way, and I am a huge Rodney Dangerfield fan. I love his movies.

    It was considered.... as was a 6.0 gas motor/tranny combofrom a crate.... Just not feasible for me.

    The truck will be used for towing, not necessarily heavy towing. Yes, I asked for opinions and leaving it stock is a consideration, I just like lifted and unique trucks. I'm sure the 6.6/Allison with 35" or even 37.5" tires won't know my 7500lb max weight tandem V-Nose trailer, usually totally loaded to a max of about 5500lbs, is even behind it. The 1500/5.3l/3.73s seemed to do too much work in the mountains for my liking which is why I am upgrading.

    Lift it! Only reason is so many people will suggest 20's is to clear the upper control arms. I was not able to run as wide of a tire as I would have liked with a 17 with -0 offset. Went to a 20 and takes the suspension out of the equation. Also, some lift company's suggest 20's with their kits.

    I am vary happy with my suspension upgrades... I went with read lift... I installed their UCA kit' leveling kit and shocks. I gained two inches all the way around... and rides and handles way better than stock.
