The most common setup for this generation Silverado on stock suspension is a set of 20x9 +20 rims with 275/55R20 tires. This will be a similar setup as your stock wheels but the lower offset and off-road tires will give your truck a more aggressive look.

Moving up to a 4-6” lift kit opens up a lot of possibilities, especially compared to a Silverado on stock suspension. Rims that are over 10” wide can now clear without major modifications, and you have an even wider selection of tire sizes. Take a look at the 20x12 -44 rims with 305/55R20 tires on this Silverado.
