    I have an '08 silverado with a 2.5 inch leveling kit..I am about to buy some tires this week and was wondering if I am going to have to go with 285 65 18s or CAN i go with the 295 70 18s....Any help with this is welcome...i dont want to rub, but if i can trim just a little off of my fender i am willing to do that..let me know what you guys think

    If your staying with stock wheels the 295's wont rub at all and they will look awesome! What tire are thinkin of?

    are you staying stock wheels? because i put a 2.5 in level kit on my truck and im running 33x12.5x18s with 18x9 wheels...and they only rub on my drivers side front fender when i back out of my driveway....and nowhere else...i didnt even bother trimming.

    295/70's will rub alot. I attempted to run a 305/55/20 on a 20x8.5 (+18), which is close in specs to the stock 20's, with a 2" leveling kit, and they didn't come close to fitting without major fender work. My buddy is running a 275/60/20 on my old wheels (the ones mentioned above) with a 2" leveling kit and he gets some very minor rubbing occassionally. I have seen countless threads where people cut metal to fit the equivalent of a 33x12.50 on aftermarket wheels on GMT-900's with lifts ranging from 2"-3".

    Just for reference:

    295/70/18 = 34.26 x 11.21
    305/55/20 = 33.21 x 12.01
    275/60/20 = 32.99 x 10.83

    I ended up going with the 285-65x18 trail grappler..they look good i decided that the 295 even if it didnt rub, would be to much tire without a bigger lift..im happy with them though! thanks for all of the replies

    Great decision the trail graps in a 295 almost rub on my truck.
