    Default Will 275/70-18 fit on a 2" RC Leveled '11 Silverado?

    I have a 2011 Silverado that I recently leveled using the Rough Country 2" leveling kit. I also have a new set of Helo HE835 rims with +18 offset that I want to get a set of tires on soon. I have been looking at different size tires and it seems like a lot of people run 285/65-18s which I have looked at but there is not a big selection and they are more expensive than a larger 275-70-18. My main question is why don't many people run the 275/70-18s do they not fit due to being appx. 33.2"? I would like to run them if possible with my setup and do not want to do any cutting to my fenders. Will these rub if anyone has experience with them? I will go with either size but I figure why not go bigger if I can, especially since most times the tread width are the same on both tire sizes, which is what matters.

    You are going to be cutting plastic for sure with a 33.2 tire maybe even need to do the nor-cal fender mod if the wheels are x9.

    I take it the nor-cal mod involves cutting the metal portion at the back of the front fender? What are you running on your truck? Did it require any cutting mods?

    I ran 33.5 on stock wheels for a while and had to cut a lot of plastic and still had rubbing on sway bar.

    Right now I am running a 4" lift with 3/4" front spacer with 34.2 on 17x9 wheels and will need to cut metal to not rub.

    Nor-cal does equal cutting metal.

    Alright thanks for helping me out! Looks like I will have to go with a 285 then. I checked last night with my stock tires and there is only about a 1 inch clearance so that made me think 33s were probably too big to consider.
