Question for anyone who has put 2014 or newer wheels on their 07-13 truck. How do they fit? Right now I am running the stock wheels, they are 17x7.5s, wrapped in 265/70/17s. My wheels are all corroded and nasty looking. I have been seeing some cleaner wheels from later-model Silverados on Craigslist, and I am okay with having a smaller tire size to compensate for 18s, but the width is what is throwing me off right now. My suspension setup is stock except for a 2in leveling kit in the front. The 17s and 18s that came with the newer trucks are anywhere from 1/2in to 1in wider. Will this make a big difference in the way that they fit, or no? Thanks.

There is a good calculator I like to use when shopping wheels here: Wheel Offset Calculator | 1010Tires.com Discount Online Tire and Wheel Store

Basically going from 7.5 inch wide and +31mm offset to 8.5 inch wide and +24mm offset, the inner clearance will be 6mm less but the wheel will extend 20mm out further from stock. With a 2" level that should not be a problem at all.

Here is where I get the stock wheel offsets:

I put 2021 takeoffs on my 2010. The wheels had P255/70R/17 tires. Worked like a charm.

Just something to think about. They changed the TPMS sensor frequency in 2018, from 315 to 433. The 2018 year both were used but in 2019 up it's only 433. This means that you would need to replace the sensors to 315 if they are indeed 433.

Thanks for the tip; If I have to change them, do you know if I could just have my old sensors installed in the new wheels? They are only a year old anyway. Or are they a different style altogether.

Sure you can, but you will need new rubber stems assuming yours are rubber and not aluminum.
