    If you’re not a baller, then why not.

    I would like to chime in on this 4 month old thread. I just got a 2016 Yukon XL with the 22's and I HATE the wheels. I love small wheels and big sidewalls. I found some nice 17" rims on tire rack But I need to know what is the biggest tire size we can put on our trucks?

    I can't wait to sell these 22's

    I put 17” on my 07 as I like to go off road with it and like larger sidewalls. No issues at all. I think I’ve got 275/70 tires (don’t quote me on that). Future plans include dropping it and installing 24” wheels.

    by the way...here’s a great tire size calculator...

    I've got a bit to add. My truck came on factory 20's with 275/55 all-seasons on it. About a year ago, though, I got a set of 265/70 Grabber AT tires and mounted them on 17" steels. Not quite as snow tires, but I've also been off road, so they made sense. I'm swapping them almost like snows, at least until I wear out the all-seasons.

    Honestly, I'm happier with the look of the 17" rims.

    I swapped out my 20's in July and every aspect of the switch has been an improvement. Zero regrets.
