    Default Optimum wheel/tire package

    I am looking for the best wheel/tire package that I can find for my suburban.

    Criteria:
    -OEM Wheel
    -Aggressive on/off road tire
    -Will be fitted during vacation/highway/off road use.

    Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated !
    Thanks

    I guess it depends on how much you want to spend. Bridgestone Duelers and Good Year Wranglers are both good on/off road tires. If you want true off road look into ProComp tires for good quality at a lower price.
    As far as a wheel I guess anything will work for you, Mickey Thompson wheels are often on sale for about 150 or so each, not OEM but a little flashier. Or ebay OEM wheels.
    Good luck.

    I bought a set of 2005 Cadillac Escalade 17" wheels for my Silverado, and mounted them on a set of 28" BFG AT's with the white lettering turned in and they look really good. The wheels cost me $800 new, and the tires were another $600 new. The whole thing mounted and balanced was around $1,500, I get a lot of compliments about the luxury wheels wrapped in the aggressive looking tires.

    Default Optimum wheel/tire package

    Thanks for your input guys, I am going to look into your suggestions. I like the looks of the wheel/tire package on the Z71 picture that is on Chevy’s site. See attached.

    What year Surburban?? I saw a older suburban (95-98year) in town with newer (07-09) Suburban factory wheels. It was a 4x4 and had BFGs a/ts 285s.

    What wheel/tire package did you get? I am interested in your factory ones. Do they have TPS?

    Yes they do have the TPMS on them, however you'd have to put your existing sensors on them. I put my sensors on my new wheels and tires. If you'd like to see the pics of the wheels and tires i took off just look at my photo album, they are on there. I havent added any new pics of my truck yet. I just got the new wheels and tires 2 days ago.
