Before we get too far into this guide, make note that this information also applies to GMC trucks. Here is everything you need to know about the standard fitment specs for your truck. Next we'll take a look at three different trucks so you can find what style works best for you!
- Bolt Pattern: 6x5.5 or 6x139.7mm
- Popular Suspension Setups: Leveling Kit or Up to 6 Inches of Lift
- Common Sizes: 18 - 22 Inches
Our first truck is running a set of 22x9.5 OEM replica wheels. If you like the look of your factory wheels or the look of other factory options for your Silverado, OEM replica wheels are available in more sizes so you can get the stance that you're looking for but maintain the factory look. Some manufactures do a really nice job with wheel design and these OEM replicas can sometimes be even cheaper than buying straight from GM.

As for tires, this particular truck is running the 33x10.5 Venom Power Terra Hunter XT. The Terra Hunter XT is a hybrid off-road tire meaning it's designed to deliver great off-road performance while maintaining a livable daily driving experience. This is a great tire at an awesome price that will give you all of the versatility you need without breaking the bank.
Finally, we can see this Silverado running a 2.5 inch leveling kit from Rough Country. This is the perfect entry-level lift kit since Rough Country offers a low price with great quality and easy installation. Their kits keep getting better and better with each model making this one of the best bang for your buck lift kits. The height isn't obnoxious either. This is just enough height to make your truck look a little more aggressive than factory.
One of our most popular wheels, the TIS 544MB is the machined black variant of the 544 that provides an aggressive look without being too flashy. TIS is known for its durable wheels with detailed designs. On this black truck, the milling provides a great contrast to the rest of the truck. As for sizing, these wheels are 20x10s making them similar to the factory wheels in terms of size. Nothing too aggressive, perfect for a daily driver.
Possibly our favorite part of this build is the tires. This truck is running the 305/55 Nitto Terra Grappler G2. The Terra Grappler G2 is the latest generation of the ever loved Nitto Terra Grappler all-terrain tire. All-terrains are focused more on daily livability than hardcore off-road performance. An all-terrain is perfect for those looking for a tire that looks a little more aggressive than just an all-season but won't completely ruin the ride quality or comfort. The Nitto Terra Grappler G2 is one of the highest-rated all-terrain tires on the market.
Nothing extreme. That's what this build is about. Finishing off this build breakdown is a Motofab Leveling Kit. A leveling kit is designed to raise the front of the truck to be level with the rear. This gives the truck a slightly lifted look without being over the top. These kits are also quite a bit less expensive than a full lift kit so if you're looking to change the look of your truck without spending a ton of money, check out leveling kits!
Finishing out the build breakdowns is the off-road setup. This is for anyone that likes to hit the trails on the weekends or want a more aggressive look. For wheels, this truck has an 18x9 Fuel Trophy in the black finish. This wheel is really cool looking and somewhat resembles something you'd see on a trophy truck which really pulls the whole off-road styling together. With a multispoke design and simulated beadlock, the Fuel Trophy looks ready to take on just about any terrain
To match the off-road look and capability of the wheels, this truck has a set of 295/70 BFGoodrich Mud-Terrain TA KM3 tires. Mud terrain tires are the most aggressive type of tire you can run. They offer huge tread block and a lot of evacuation channels within the tire to maximize off-road performance. It's important to keep in mind that since mud tires are so aggressive, their day-to-day comfort and road noice tend to be below average. Luckily this tire is made by BFGoodrich who has been around for quite a long time and has put a ton of research and development into this tire.
Finally, for suspension, we can see a 4 inch BDS Suspension Lift Kit. BDS is known for being one of the best quality suspension brands on the market. This 4-inch lift adds a very aggressive stance to the Silverado and pulls the entire build together. This whole setup will be ready to take on just about any obstacle on the trail and look good doing it.
