    Default Finally, Bigger tires, new wheels installed. Pics!

    I went from stock 245/70/17 to BFG A/T 285/70/17. I am hoping this will help some people with all the "will it fit" questions.

    2007 Silverado Classic leveled with 3.5 inch spindles in front and just 1" blocks in the rear. Nothing more.

    Here are some quick before and after cell phone pics.

    Thanks guys. My next addition will be a programmer and side steps.
    Im looking at this 6-Step by N-Fab but it's a little more pricey than I like.

    I agree truck has a much more aggressive look! You had to be thrilled when you saw it with the new wheels and tires on for the first time! I know when I put mine on I thought my truck turned into a monster haha

    I like those a lot as they hug up to the rocker panels. Someday I will be replacing mine with that style. There are a couple of companies that make them, I know n-fab was one and now I am drawing a blank on the other. You may want to look around some and see if you can find them cheaper.

    NTB - will your programmer you have for sale work with a 2007 OBS/CBS?
