Stock 2011 18" tires

Hi All,

Looked at a few 2011's yesterday that had Michelin LTX A/T2 tires on them. I assume these are the stock choice.

My question is does anyone happen to know what brand/model of tires are being used for the $150 "on/off road" option?

The stock option on those I think is the Goodyear Wrangler SR-A. Optional would be the Michelins.

The 17's get Firestone Transforce HT's stock, then can get the Bridgestone Duravis M700(?) optional.

The 20's run Goodyears as well.

From what I've seen on the 18"s,Chevy gets Goodyears,and GMC gets Michelins.When I ordered my truck I was told I had no options with the 18"s.

Thanks,thats the first ones I've seen on a Chevy,all the pictures I've seen have been Goodyear.I wonder if its because it's a Z71,or is it just random?When I placed my order,I wanted A/Ts and salesman said I couldn't have them.I hope the Z71s come with the Michelins,I like them better.Does anyone have a Chevy Z71 yet?

Well I just looked at pictures of a Chevy Z71 that had 18"s and Goodyears,on Left Lane News.It was a 3500 SRW,I wonder if its a 2500 vs 3500 thing?I ordered a 3500 SRW Z71.

I just ordered a 2011 and the salesman told me that it had 265/70/18 tires. I don't know what brand though.

I want to get BFG's right away, but I don't think they make that size.

A 285/65/18 BFG will get you the same overall height but a little wider tire. I already put these on my truck and they look much better. Mine had 265/70/18 Goodyear Eagle SR-A from the factory.
