    Jesse, Welcome to the club. I really can't answer that question. I have had transmission problems due to too much HP, not from wheel sizes. I am assuming that you are talking about a 4L60E trans? If you change the wheel and tire combined diameter, you change the final drive ratio. Increasing the diameter decreases the final drive ratio, and may make it harder to accelerate the mass of your truck.

    Hi Jesse, well I have had 2 Silverado and had 20s on both and no trany problems. What matters is the outside diameter of your tires. Mine were 30 and now only 31, not allot of difference. Just try to keep it close to the original diameter and you should be okay.
