    I'm looking at a set of "2015" 1500 silverado "18 factory's. Wondering if they will fit my '99 4x4 tahoe. Both are 6 lug.

    Thanks for the reply also.
    I kinda wonder about the tire size (rubbing or not in turns) I'm sitting at stock height.
    He's Asking $500 for these 2015 with good tread and great shape rims.

    as far as tire size unless he is running something other than stock tire it should be safe enough the run the tread out. if you notice a severe loss in wheel gap due to either tire height or the rim. sticking out farther just be a little extra cautious on the sweet jumps.

    You've already received some good assessments from the folks here. If you want to take it one step further, specific to your truck, you may want to review the following.

    Regarding wheel/tire combinations that will fit your truck without rubbing, no 2 trucks and their suspensions are exactly alike, due to a number of factors including accumulated wear on the suspension components, so there is no guarantee that what fits with no rubbing on one truck will automatically fit with no rubbing on your truck. Other folks' experiences can guide you in one direction or another, but the final test will be when you mount the wheel/tire combination on your own truck.

    To assist you in getting a good idea on whether or not specific alternate wheel/tire combinations 'may' fit your truck with no rubbing, I recommend that you use the wheel/tire comparison app at the URL listed below. You can use this app starting with your existing wheel/tire combination as a benchmark, assuming that there are currently no rubbing issues with it, and measure the actual critical fender and suspension component clearances as directed by this app. Then, you can enter alternate wheel/tire combinations, and this app will give you the projected changes in these critical fender and suspension component clearances.

    https://www.wheel-size.com/calc/

    I used this app for determining whether on not I could use my current alternate wheel/tire combination, and it accurately projected the changes in critical clearances. Again, the use of this app in not an absolute guarantee that an alternate wheel/tire combination will fit without rubbing, but it provides a much better assessment, or projection, than simply an educated guess on your part, or a statement from others that it worked on a truck other than yours.
