    Default tire size

    really dumb question for you guys.

    what is the biggest size tire that will fit on an 06 silverado with no lift or leveling kit?

    I t looks like you have a 1500 4x4, the biggest tire would be a 285/75 but you would have some serious issues w/ rubbing. Prbably a 265/75 would be your safe bet

    I believe you can take it to your locl dealer and have it changed or by getting a tune box (superchips, hypertech) etc

    I got another question for you guys.
    Ive been looking into leveling kits, and maybe some new wheels when i get the money together for it.
    How much is a decent front end leveling kit for an 06 silverado 1500 W/T and how much bigger will it allow me to go with oversized tires without having rubbing problems?

    you will probably be looking to spend about 150-200 on the leveling kit (although rough country may have one cheaper). and I would stay with the 285/75R16 (its a 33/11.5)

    Just make sure that a 285/75 won't rub, I have a leveled out 04 3500 silverado single rear wheel truck and my 285/75's rub and my truck sits much higher then a 2" leveled 1500. Just a heads up, hate to see you get burned
