Here is mine. 2015 Suburban Z71. I was trying to make it look unique with a wheel that would look clean and hasn't been overplayed. I'm still on the fence. I guess the thing with overplayed wheels is that they are proven and look great. Spec's are below. I am unsure of what to think of the offset as well. They stick out a little further than I was hoping for, and my wife is not happy with the rub! I may pull the 1.5" leveling spacer and go with Fox 2.0 coilovers front and shocks rear. Hoping that will give me a little more height and eliminate the rub. I will probably have to add a 1" rear spacer as well.

Wheels: Fuel Rage 20x9 +1
Tires: Toyo Open Country AT3 275/60/20
Leveling Kit: Moto Fab 1.5"

Oh you will definitely get more height with the fox struts, but chances are you wont stop the rub. Just jack the front of the rig up another inch and and see if the rub goes away…bet it wont.

Truck looks good!

Thanks for the feedback. The shocks are due for replacement regardless and the Fox 2.0 all around looked like a good option to get a level and have decent ride quality. I had leveled our previous Suburban and, until I installed the leveling kit on this one, had forgotten how much that 1.5" really does affect the ride. I'm hoping to get a level without the ride harshness from the Fox's. Although, I really don't want more than 2" and from all of the feedback I am seeing on this page, I'm afraid they might overdo that height.

Looks good. I wouldn't have predicted any ride quality change raising the strut 1.5". As for the rub, your probably making contact with your fender liner and could look into pounding them in a bit and reforming the carpets.

I put a 1.5” lower strut level spacer on her ‘16 denali. That worked fine for about 50k miles, then the shocks started going. I then replaced the stock struts and level kit with fox 2.0 units. I honestly couldn't tell the difference between the 3 setups really…they all rode good to me.

Out of the box, the fox units gave her ‘16 denali all of a full 3” of lift, if not a bit more. I had to lower them down quite a bit to keep it level with the factory height in the rear.
