    Hey everyone my name is Tom. I'm new to this forum and new to 4 wheel drives. I've always had 2 wheel drive trucks and the sport look. I just purchased a 2013 chevy crew cab truck graystone metallic 4 wheel drive with the all star package. Basically the black door handles with the 17 aluminum wheels. I have to say the wheels are not much to look at.
    I need some advice on what type of wheels and tire to put on it. I wont be lifting it, its going to be my everyday driver. I was thinking going 18's with an all terrain tire for it, and then i was thinking maybe i should try and contact a chevy dealer and try to get the 20's chrome clad wheels . I just dont know what to do. I appreciate any advice that someone can give. Thankyou, Tom

    Welcome to the club Tom, it's great to have you aboard. I buy everything from the Dealer that I can because of the much better quality and I want my truck to remain a quality truck. I think the GM dealer has a good choice of wheel styles and mine were actually cheaper than the ones I was looking at online. :great:

    welcome to gmtc. I would check craigslist in your area. The dealers near me post new "take offs" all the time at a good price. Most the time it is from a truck that they put custom rims and tires on and want to get rid of the old ones.

    I myself prefer 17 - 18" rims.... just seems like a nice balance of rim to rubber. Also' you have a larger assortment of tires that are in my budget range. Rims and tires can be one of the biggest changes to your truck. With rims and tires stick with the better name brands and you won't go wrong.

    When you are trying to make a choice between 17 and 18's look at the difference in price for the tire you are wabting to run. If my memory serves me the 17's are less than the 18's. As far as tires go I would agree that an A/T is a great option.
