    Default New Tires

    I have a 2007 Silverado with 265/70 r17 tires. I am ready for new one and was wanting to go bigger without a lift or leveling kit. How big can i go. I was thinking about 2275/70 r17 tires. If i do with the mess up at the computer crap like the tire pressure monitoring system and such. Will they rub??Does anyone ahve any pics of there truck with this size tires do they look good.

    Idk man i wouldn't think the tire would be awhole lot bigger going from a 265/70 to a 275/70 i think you would be better off and way more happy if you bought a leveling kit and would also look a hell allot better. A good leveling kit is Readylift 2.25 leveling kit along with rough country leveling kit just naming a few that you could buy depending on your budget. The Readylift is a good penny leveling kit but i loved it one of the best around. If your on a low budget get a rough country leveling kit but ALL in ALL i would save up for a nice leveling kit to even the truck out and would be able to run 33/11.50/17 without Rubbing.

    X2 in short. Rough country has a nice leveling kit for a nice price which will allow you to go a little bigger. I have 265/75/18s on my 09 with plenty of room, and it looks nice!
