    Thanks for the info. This is a great forum. I plan on swapping the wheels out on Saturday after I clean them up and get a few coats of dip on them. Im gonna start spraying the bolts today because, yeah, shes a rusty girl under there. I didn't plan on doing anything to this truck since I already have 2 other projects but I just cant help it. Plus, this has become my daily and it just needs the right touches because cmon, stock is never cool
    **edit** how many turns do you think I should give it? I don't wanna sacrifice ride comfort since that's all this thing has going for it over my other cars lol. From the math you gave me, Im thinking maybe 3 turns to raise it about 3/4 might not hurt

    That's about what I did, and I'm running 275/70/18 (33.2"), free and clear. Ride is great, although my jounce stops dont touch anymore, so I'll probably put a little pad in there when I tear into the front end. Not sure if I'll even notice.

    Mine is also a Z71, so my rear springs are different, so the height to level the front may be a little different for you. I still have just a touch of rake on mine.

    Thanks for the info. Im not necessarily looking to level as I like a little rake ( probably the muscle car guy in me ). Im gonna try the 3 turns if it doesn't fight me

    These were taken a couple weeks ago when my nitto tires had about a few hundred miles worth of tread left on them and at factory ride height.

    Those wheels look great on that truck. Great choice. Nice updated factory look. I was looking for those but the ones I bought just kinda fell in my lap for such a good price. These will at least hold me over until I find something I like better.

    Thanks! Yeah I like these wheels a lot. I had chrome 8-spoke 07 Denali 20s. And these just fell in my lap. Lol. This is the updated look with the new bigger tires I scored for dirt cheap and a level kit.

    Got them Dipped and mounted yesterday. LOVE THEM. They aren't perfect but for what I paid, they really changed the look of the truck. No fitment issues whatsoever

    Yeah, I felt like they would look better with a gloss finish so I threw a bunch of coats of the plastidip "glossifier" on them. They came out pretty damn good considered I did them in 32* weather outside. Im gonna leave them like this for a while.
