I read a lot of go things about the Pulsar LT... I had the installed the pedal commander on my 2017 Sierra I had .... it would pop check engine light codes and just took it off ... any said issues with the LT?
So far zero issues day 4.

That’s size I’m looking for my TB on the factory 18’s... don’t see how some are running 35/12.50’s without spacers to avoid contact with control arms

agree ,..it’s the ones that post that they accomplish fitting them on the stock 18’s... maybe running tires that run small... how did you notice your truck after going up to the 295’s... did you get much loss of acceleration ...or any other changes ? Thanks
I personally did not notice much going from stock to 295's other than the minor rubbing which was solved by the mud flap trim, I did notice the tight turning radius was a little different, but that was due to the spacers mostly not the tire size I'm pretty sure

wondering what tire sizes you guys are getting away with without additional lift! I'm wanting to stuff 305 65s on my stock wheels.

So after much research and waiting for Memorial Day sales at Discount Tires, I woke up early this morning and made my way there and purchased a set of 295/70/18 Nitto Ridge Grapplers .... with the 1.5 RC leveling kit there is absolutely zero rubbing ... I tried to make it rub by backing up and turning full turns in all directions and no scrubbing ... I’m sure a 35/12.50 would have fit with a little cutting and pulling ... but I didn’t want to cut or pull anything yet on my newish truck. The factory Duratrac next to my the nitto ... no weight of course so it would be shorter.

Damn it looks good man. Wondering if the 305s will rub more or less. Theyre not as tall as yours but mucho wider
Don’t know if you still interested or not, but here your answer Yes they will fit easily on a stock Trail Boss

I compromised between height and width so the 295/70/18 seemed to fill wheel wheel openings nicely ... almost a 35 and almost by 12... I’m happy with my choice... and no modifications done to fenders .. no rubbing .

The 295/70R18s leave about 1" clearance with the upper control arm. How close are the 305s?
Actually it looks about the same as the 275s like you said 1”,some say the 295/70R18s rub without modifying the mud flap, so I when with a shorter tire, I’m liking the Nitto a lot quitter.

I got 285/75 duratracs on with real mudflaps. cut a small corner out of the flaps on the front. I'm confident that if I didn't have real flaps they would have fit with no issues. sorry pics aren't straight on.

Looks great, I always thought these trucks should have come with 285/70 right off the lot, the 285/75s are even beefier!

If I didn’t have the 1.5 level it would most likely rub at full turn....

RdHog; thank you for this post. I am considering the G2's in 305/65-18. How is you overall satisfaction with this set up? Look great on your truck by the way. Any rubbing issues discovered after haviing them on a while?

Thanks for the compliment, no rubbing at all you can do donuts in reverse no worries, tires ride and handles good not much road noises, now the bad I did lose gas mileage I was getting on the road 19 mpg now 17
