I like the method wheels the best out of those 2.

18” or 20”? You leveling or lifting or leaving it stock?
My truck is leveled. Currently running polished BMF Paybacks 20s, 295/65-20.
If I go with the black Paybacks, I will run the same size.
If I go with the Methods, I will run a 35x12.50-18.
I like the more positive offset of the Methods, but the 0 offset works as well

Wheels & Tires - No Lift - 2020 Denali HD 3500SRW

I went with a slightly larger than stock tire and +20 offset wheel. No rubbing at all with suspension stock. I love the look of leveled or moderately lifted trucks with 35" - 37" tires. I have lifted/leveled several trucks over the years. The new 2020 GM trucks sit pretty high stock and we tow a larger 5er. Any taller and I would have to modify the trailer suspension to make it sit level and allow good bed clearance.

Fuel Vandals - 20x9 +20
Nitto Ridge Grappler 285/65R20

Removed the factory running boards, replacing with AMP Power steps (I think the Denali's should come factory with them)
This thing looks great, looks like the tires are flush with the side of the truck?

I traded in the 2019 CCSB for a 2021 CCLB. Pretty unbelievable how many upgrades GM did on these trucks! Still trying to find time to install the Kryptonite Stage 3 Leveling Kit, but these pictures give a good preview. Cranked the torsion bars up to near level. Added at 35x12.50 Nitto Ridge Grapplers on 20x9 BMF Roulettes with a +0 offset.
I like the way that looks! How far do the wheels stick out past the fenders with the +0?

Not too far! It’s got a good stance to it IMHO. You’ll have to ziptie the front of the fender skirts back in the center if you run full 35x12.50s, but so far no rubbing since I did that.

Nice! Thanks for the pictures. How much of a lip do you have on the rim? I'll probably go with the 295/65/20 Nitto Ridge Grapplers for the slightly higher weight rating. The 35/12.50's look so good though!

Odd request, but can any of you guys that have leveled 2500's (2-3 inch) with power running boards measure how far they are from the ground when deployed? I'm trading my F250 in, but want to compare the height before I do. I have achilles problems. My F250 has a Carli 2.5" on it and I feel it when I step up in. Betting the Ford is taller.

Thanks in advance.

i don't have a measurement for you, but I had a 2017 F350 with a Carli set up and amp steps.
The Ford was definitely taller than my 2020 GMC 3500 with a 2.5/1.5" level. I have amp steps on my GMC. I have heard the factory steps drop down a touch more.🤷🏻‍♂️

37x12.5R20 Terra Grapplers. 6 turns on the keys. Rubs slightly on the frame rail at full lock. Bent front fender liner mounting tab forward to eliminate that rub.

I like the looks of an 18” wheel over 20.” More sidewall makes it look muscular.

How is the ride? Also performance? Tires that big tend to have an impact.

Sorry for late reply. For some reason all my notifications were going to the spam folder.

I also prefer the 18s over 20s.
The ride and performance are great!!
No issues here. I have nitto ridge grapplers 37x12.50x18 model #217260. I tried different psi and was happy with 55psi in the front and 60psi in the back.

I’ve taken it through ice, snow, dirt, gravel and a river bed full of boulders with no issues.

I went with the same lift but with Fox shocks. You mind measuring from the center of the wheel to the fender up front? According to Fabtech it should be 30.5” on a Chevrolet.
Sorry for late reply my messages were going to my junk folder.
It’s just under that at 30 3/8”

Did a few upgrades since last post.

Speed Pole custom flag poles

ICS Dash mount

ADD Offroad Bomber front bumper (Baja) with 3 Baja Designs LP6 pros

Chassis Unlimited 2020 Chevy Silverado 2500 Attitude Rear bumper + Sensors+ BSS+ Powder

I have the ADD Offroad Bomber HD front bumper on order so I can have the winch

I also got the Chassis unlimited 2020 Chevy Silverado 2500 Octane Winch Front +Sensors+ Powder with 4X LP6 Mounts. But they sent me the wrong middle piece so I don’t have the 4 LP6 mounts so I might send it back.
still waiting on the rest of my Diode Dynamics ssc3 pro lights.
I chose Diode Dynamics over Baja Design for my fogs(2 clear and 2 amber) because of the beam pattern and USABLE output.

Waiting on Baja squadron pro wide cornering (if I go with the chassis unlimited front bumper)and 2 more Amber LP6 pros

Currently on truck

FabTech 6″ RTS LIFT KIT W/ FRONT DIRT LOGIC 2.25 RESI SHOCKS & REAR DIRT LOGIC 2.25 SHOCKS – K1160DL.
