    Default Tire Sizes

    OK, my truck comes stock with 18s. The leveling kit says it will allow a 285/70 tire. if i were to put 20s on it, would i use a 285/70 20? or is there some sort of size difference because of the new wheel size?

    Not a lot done so far, havent had the thing long...
    18% tint to match factory rear
    color matched bowties
    Rough Country leveling kit (not shown in picture)
    removed front valence
    8000k HIDs

    Near future mods....
    Grillcraft MX series mesh grille
    KMC Hoss wheels
    Terra Grapplers.....

    The 285/70 is for the 18. I just put a TGC 2.5" kit on the front and 1" block in the rear sits level and went with a 20x9 wheel with 5.5" backspacing and a +12mm offset with a 275/60/20 witch is a 33" tall tire and have no rubbing anywhere. Hope this helps Tom

    Sounds like a good looking truck SSTOM. you have any pictures of it just to get an idea?
