    I second Jon on the definity tires....I have them on my suburban and I love them.....I wanted to buy them for my silverado but they don't make the definity in an 18 inch tire....I was soo dissapointed......I am now looking at the Kelly safari tsr. I am just debating on the size tire I want to go with....good luck in your search for the perfect tire....

    Nitto Terra Grapplers are pretty good and look really good on the newer silverado's.

    On the leveling kit... You say my 2010 doesn't have torsion keys turned. So are you suggesting the dealership put a leveling kit on it?

    I am running Kumho road venture ATs (KL-78) I love them so far i have about 12k on them and have used them in snow, ice and mud. I did a lot of research prior to purchasing. they are 10ply and have a pretty aggressive look in larger tire sizes. I bought 305/70R16 for $170.

    Your torsion keys are not turned because you do not have torsion keys, because you do not have torsion bars.

    I like those trail grappler's. Whats the size on those tires? I dont really understand the 33.4x11.65 thing lol. I do understand the 285/55/17 type lingo lol. I have a RC leveling kit I have yet to install and would like to keep my stock rims for now, so this setup you have seems to be more what I would like to do with mine. Any more road noise compared to the Goodyears?

    If you look at the tire on the first pic it shows 295/70/17 on the tire. I don't think he has this setup anymore. There is some road noise, but its minimal compared to a mud terrain tire.

    Good eye. I had to zoom in on that lol. I wonder how far it throws the speedometer off. I wonder if there was any trimming involved so it didn't rub at full lock. Might just stick with the 285/70/17s.. Those look sweet though. I better figure out what I want before the snow falls haha. I have goodyear wrangler AT/S on mine.. Came with the truck and still have decent tread on them. My explorer I had (traded in for my NNBS) had some Grabber AT2's that were great in snow. But I figure the trail grapplers would be better. I plan on getting an exhaust (probably 40 series flowmaster catback) so I am sure exhaust noise will trump tire road noise haha.
