Postby NOHOMO [OP] » Oct 30 2013, 1:43pm

Im installing a 2.5" RC leveling kit, on a 2013 GMC Sierra 4x4, would you go with 285s or 295s on the stock wheels? I want it to fill the wheel well, but not rub a lot.

I would do the 285. It will fill them fairly well, and you shouldn't get any rubbing.

The 295's will rub plastic and the sway bar at full turns. With a ziptie mod on the plastic and some small trimming you can run them. You do have to teach yourself full lock turns will rub the sways. No biggie, I ran 295/70/18's on a 2 inch level kit with stock rims and just never turned the wheel that last inch.
I agree with Dmanj though. 285's are probably the best bet if you dont want the above issues.
