Default Which tire Size...help

I just put the Bilstein Leveling shocks on today and it looks much better. I have the stock 20x8 wheels. Can I go a bit taller, if so which tire and size would be good or should I stick with stock size 275x60x20 and go with a Nitto Terra Grappler.
Thank you

You can fit 35x12.50's with a leveling kit. You'll most likely have to run a quarter inch spacer with the stock wheels. What setting do you have the bilstiens on and are you level?

the max one, which I believe is 2.8...It looks level to me, but measures out 1/4-1/2 lower than rear. I am measuring from ground to lip.

dont run spacers period. if you want biggest tires possible go after market wheels with an bit of offset and run 325/60/20s (35x12.50r20). 285/65/20 will fit no problems. they willl work bone stock without a leveling kit. but i believe bfg is the only manufacturer in that size, 295/60/20 and 305/55/20 will fit and look good too. 305/55/20 is most common. Pull out your wallet for all of those sizes though.

Yes, 275/65 will fit fine with no issues and is an even inch taller than the stock size. I think this is a great size for a leveled truck. The extra inch makes quite a difference (insert your own joke here). They are a little more expensive than the stock size but not as expensive as some of the bigger sizes. Throw some 275/65 Terras on there...you will love it.

I just put 275/65 BFGs on my leveled truck and I think it is the perfect size for a non-lifted truck. Please be advised that when you go from the 275/60 to the 275/65 you are going from a P-metric to a LT E-rated tire. This means your ride will be more firm.

Would you happen to have any pics of your truck with the 275x65's on...
