After reading several threads trying to determine which tire size to go with, I ended up getting the Nitto Ridge Grapplers 295/70/18. Tires were installed on the factory black 18" chevy rims with no wheel spacers needed. There is no rubbing at all! Ride feels very similar to factory ride. I haven't had any noticeable power loss. While driving past radar speed limit signs I am only off by 1 mph on the speedometer.

I am still undecided if I am going to add a leveling kit.

Daily Grind,

I have two questions. Now that you have had the tires on for a few weeks do you notice any rubbing on full lock turns? That has happened to some members previously after oversized tires were on the vehicle for a few weeks.
Second, do you think the size of the tires would hinder the suspension off roading? I don’t do anything crazy or fast, but some of the fire lanes way up north have huge ruts and large exposed rocks/boulders that require some suspension articulation.

I’ll be the first to say they are a cool tire. I had them on my 2016 2500. Let me just say they are not great winter tires.. They felt scetchy in the snow..

Pointman,
I have not had any rubbing at all. I have had it in full lock going forward as well as reverse several times with no issues.

Good question about the suspension. I am going camping in a couple weeks and I will let you know if I have any issues.

Have you had it off road yet? I would like the same tire size, but I worry about rubbing when I go off road. I don’t want to level the front because they say you shouldn’t use the auto 4x4, which my wife uses frequently during the winter.
