    Hello all,

    Needing new tires and I am tired of the "roller skate" look that my Denali has with those 20" rims. I have orderred the Supreme Suspensions lift kit.. Front 3.5" lift, Rear 2" lift.

    I want a AT type of tire, and want it to look like a proper truck. To do this, I think I need new rims, probably 17". Thinking a 285/70-17 would work if the rims have a small negative offset.

    Looking to hear what works, see pictures of trucks with a similar lift and tires.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    thank you,

    John

    You could still run the 20" wheel and go with a 275-65-20 tire for a 34" tire/wheel height. Still have lots of sidewall with that combo compared with the 265-70-17 combo.

    What brand of tire are you looking at? Is this an AWD or RWD truck?

    Welcome to the forum btw, John.
