    I have an 07 new style body silverado, not lifted or leveled, and am looking at getting new rims without having to lift my truck and kmc's are the only ones i like, i want to get 18 or 20's if possible and am looking at the hoss or addicts by kmc with nitto terra grapplers, anyone run the same setup on an unlifted 2007 or newer silverado?would 20's be to big and just cause problems?please help

    Welcome to the club! No the wheel size will be fine but you will have to run a lower profile tire if thats the look your going for. I agree by the way. I love the KMC Addicts!

    wlecome to the club----I noticed that ntbush said that you might have to go to a lower profile tire if you go larger in size, and I'm not sure if you have ever drove on low profiles ??---they feel great to the road, but I found a pair we had as a little rough for everday driving.(just my own observation)-----good luck from Canada

    As long as you go with a setup close to stock you shouldn't have any issues. It is when you plus size you might run into issues. So if you want to run 20" wheels, find some that have the same offset of the stock rims. You can check out these threads that will answer a lot of questions and let you figure out what will and won't work.

    Both of those wheels should work, and I wouldn't go any bigger then a 275 tire.

    The 20" rims will fit! Just make sure u get the right back spacing for your truck (if u are thinking of a lift in the future, find out what back spacing u might need for that!)275/55/20 tires are what are commonly found on new style body trucks!

    I would really suggest to pony up and get the leveling kit to. I think it looks much better when your can run a bigger tire than stock with the 20's.
