    Maybe the year of the truck and how high you want the lift?

    I have a similar inquiry. I have a NBS 2008 Silverado 2500 HD Crew Cab 6.0L Gas 4WD 6.5 Box. Currently rolling on stock wheels 265 70 R17. I want to level the front of my truck at the same time upgrade tire size using same factory rims. What is biggest tire size that would fit factory rims with just a leveling kit? Thanks

    you can fit 275 w/o rubbing, but anything more you will need to make cuts in the fender or get a bigger lift

    I meant new body style, the one in my avatar. You mentioned lower kit... No i want to raise the front so to level the truck and possibly slap a much bigger tire.

    Thanks rotary. 275 may not be a practical upgrade though. any idea how much lift do i have to install if i want to put at least 285 70 17 tire.
