    I just put on my new winter tires on my 2004 silverado Z71 this week. They are firestone destination A/Ts 285/70/17 on stock silverado 17s i sprayed black. I have a tuff country leveling kit with front torsion keys and the add a leaf in the rear as well. Ill post some pics when i get home. they dont rub at all and no trimming or modifying was required. They wont even rub at full lock to either side!

    Thanks for the pics, I was wanting to see some as well. I should be able to run 285/70/17's with no problem with a 2.5" leveling kit on my 2wd right? Probably a stupid question, but just wondering.

    Also, @LEVELEDZ71 , how did you paint your stock wheels black? is that just spray paint? because I have chrome wheel covers on mine and I'm thinking of spraying the actual wheel itself, so I would be able to easily change the look of the tire in just a few minutes by popping the covers on and off. Thanks.

    I sandblasted the rims and used just standard grey primer on them. i let them dry and then spray painted them with a high temp engine enamel. Mine also had the chrome covers but i think they look terrible thats why i painted them black.

    im running 285/70/17s for my winter wheels but my summer wheels are 275/60/20 summer tires which are a true 33inch tire and i still dont get anywhere near rubbing. When i installed the leveling kit i only cranked them up and got 1 2/3-3/4ish lift in front. i can get 2 inches out of the front easily without over cranking but i just never got around to it and if they dont rub why mess with em.
