Trailboss came with factory 1” suspension lift, I don’t want to increase my tire size , factory 18’s, was wondering what size and type of lift would look good without changing tires and rims?
 
None in my opinion, I thought the stock tires looked small with the stock trail boss lift, many people go up to 33" or 34" tires without any additional lift...
 
Do the new Trail Bosses now come with only 1in of lift instead of the previous 2in factory Trail Boss lift? Wonder why they changed it.
 
What tires come on the trail boss now, was 275-65-18 for a while which is only a 32.1" tire

I have the 20" wheel option and it has 265/60/20 which is 32.5" But standard Silverados with the 20" wheel package have 275/60/20 which is a 33". Strangely saw a new Trail Boss that had ATs on it from the factory which were 275/60/20 Goodyear Trail Runners. GMC AT4's have 275/60/20's as well.
 
I always thought it was odd that GM decided to put mid-size truck tires on a full-size truck lol.
my daughter said my truck used to look like it belonged on Mario Kart because the tires looked really small and my son said they’re too small. And since it’s also a 2.7 Turbo, I died inside lol

Added 35s, lift, and new UCAs
 
My '24 came with 275/65-18 Territory MT's, stock 2" lift. And yes, after installing a Ready Lift SST 2" lift, the wheels and tires look small. I'm hesitating getting bigger wheels and tires as the market is flooded with take offs right now.
 
I sold my 1 month old, 600mi stock 275 65 18 Dura Tracs and put the $600 towards a new set of 295 70 18 Toyos on stock wheels.

Don't lift it unless, you're at the very least increasing the tire size. It'll look like your truck skips leg day, every day! They already look small from the factory. Yes, it'll drop your MPG and you'll need to get a programmer to adjust tire size with the speedometer but well worth it in my opinion.
I like the factory black 18s that came on the truck, but I did put some 295/70r18 Toyo R/T Trails on them. No added lift or spacers.

You won’t necessarily need a reprogram for the speedo unless you constantly run 8-9 over.
