You can probably safely run 275/70R18 or 285/65R18, 295/70R18 might fit with torsion bars cranked, but if you want to try, mount a front one and check it for fit. They wouldn't fit on my 2017 3500 with after market wheels due to the difference in offset.

What was the difference in offset and what problems did you encounter?

Iím trying to figure out a larger tire for my 2018 2500. Working with a 20x9 +20... OEM is +44.

Wow that 285/65r20 shows to be almost 2 " taller tire and .8" wider...with no rub... that would be the tire!

I went with a 18x9 +12 and it gained me 1 1/2 inches of clearance from my upper control arm ball joint location to make running tire chains safer. With the tire offset to the outside more, it is easier to make contact with the outside of the rear part of the fender. I can fit 275/70 or 285/6518 and they don't rub, still kind of tight for chains at full crank though.

Had my GMC 3500HD all Terrain for 3 months now. Stock wheels 18's, tires need replacing, currently have 265/70/18 Michelin on them.



I want to up side tires, keep stock wheels if possible (unless there is any gain on changing). I plan to use truck primary for pulling my race car trailer 30ft (race mk1 custom rabbit), so need tires for that usage. I am thinking going 285/65/R18, not sure what type of tires though.



Any help on size and brand of tires would be appreciated. thanks Simon.

Either 285/65R18 or 275/70R18 would be a good choice, speedo should be right on. As for brand, if highway and towing is primary, I would stick with Michelin all season. If you want more traction, I am very fond of the new Dick Cepek Trail Country EXP. mine are wearing very well and they have good traction and not too loud.

Thank you for quick reply. I see those sizes brings me in at



285/65R18 = 32.5"

275/70R18 = 33.16"


Doing some research these sizes seem to be within the band of not rubbing or cutting of front bumpers, mud flaps, etc. Awesome.


thanks







more traction seems always a good idea!



thanks Simon.
