    Default Silverado Leveling Kit Tire Size?

    I have a 2004 Chevy Silverado Z71. I bought it with 07-10 dealer option 20 inch 6 spoke rims (torque thrust knock off). They have 275/55/20 for tires on them. I installed a tuff country leveling kit with add a leaf and front torsion keys. I got a full 2 inches out of the front. I bought a set of stock 2005 silverado 17 inch rims. I want to put 285/70/17 firestone destination a/t tires on but i want to know if they will rub at all. The rears will clear no problem but i wanna know if trimming is required in the front or not. Any info and advise is extremely appreciated. Thanks

    Idk excatly what size tire that is but you can run 33's for sure with the leveling kit and AAL. The 33 might need to be a lil bit more narrow than a 33 12.50 without any rubbing for sure and it will fit man.

    Like i said above you could run 33's just would have to be narrow so either way you would be fine running 32's!

    285/70/17 converts to 32.7/11.2/17 so in that case I should be set. Especially since im runnin stock 05 silverado 17s. Thanks for all the information guys. Greatly appreciated.
