    i just purchased a 08 2wd crew cab silverado and i was planning on putting a leveling kit on and tires... does anyone know how big of a tire i can run on my stock 17in rims?? one of my friends can get a good price on cooper tires.... i just want to have a lil more agressive look untill i can afford rims+tires... sorry i dont know much about going higher and bigger... i came from having a lowered colorado xtreme

    zach - as for a better tire they are both great... the ST are an all terrain and the STT are a mud terrain.. I would go with the STT they are great and look incredible and will with the rockstars

    k3k0 - go with the 33's hey will look better considering your truck prob has 31" or bigger stock. here is a pic of an 08 with a 2.5" leveling kit and 275/60/20 (33/11)

    hey thanks for the pic.... thats exactly what i want my truck to look like simple and clean... rims are sik too... btw do u know what brand of rim that is?? and my stock tire size is 27" so anything bigger would be better... so if i put those 33in cooper tires on my stock rims they would be that size right? it dont matter that i have 17in rims? sorry for so much questions... but would my truck look stupid because im guessing the offset on my stock rims would make the tires more into the fender?
