Newbie to this diesel group

Just picked up a 2004 Silverado 2500HD to pull my midsize trailer (F150 would do it but didn't feel safe) Appreciate all the info out here, fun looking. Only question at this point - best highway tire for my 16" stock wheels - 265/75-16 seems to be largest without changing some suspension or buying new wheels (tires are expensive enough) Anyway - glad to be here

Running stock

Just crawled under my 2004 Silverado and one of the exhaust hangers isn't connected, or even close. Factory part or does anyone make aftermarket units
