    Default Tire Size

    I have a 2008 crew cab 2 wheel drive Silverado,I got a set of American Racing 18X9.5 wheels my question is what size tire do I need.Looking at a 275 60 18 I like to see some tire not a fan of the rubberband look.

    If you had 265R70X17s on your truck, and went to the 275R60X18 you would only gain less than 1/2" in height. The 18i's should b e 31" vs 17''s are 30.4". Good luck!
