Largest on stock rim and or 20s

What's the largest tire the stock rim can safely fit and will fit the truck with no level/lift?

Also I may be going with 20s. What's the largest tire and best rim width/offset combo that'll fit on a stock suspension
While I'm sure the answer is in the posts I've bounced around for like 30 mins and didn't find anything.
Thanks

The stock Denali Canyon comes with 255-55-20 and there is not much more room with out mods.


They factory tire is 30.5 inches. I think the wheels are 20x8.

I expect that to change. When we bought the wife's Terrain there was few choices for 19" tires for it and now there are a good number. With the number of SUV and trucks going to 20" I expect more to be with us soon. It takes time for the market to react.

I am wondering how the Bridgestone will hold up. I have never has a set I was happy with OE yet from them or Firestone. They often do not offer their best to the OE market like many others.


In the dry they have been good but the Hankooks we had they were worthless in the snow and rain> I hope not to repeat that 4x4 or not.


I have family in the tire industry and can get some decent discounts on tires as long as they offer what I want.

The Denali is tuned more for the road and I have added a rear sway bar. I will keep with a good all season.

265/65r17

265/70r17 can be done, but a rub can occur dependent on particular tire model designs.

I guess I may wait a few more months and see if any options come out. I really want 20s and I really dont want to lift.

The 255/55/20 is a 31.1 inch tire, not 30.5. I have a Denali diesel and they had some room left for sure. I put a set of 18s on with 265/65/18 ATs and I don't run anywhere without a lift or level.

What wheels did you go with
I just picked up a set of 18" Canyon wheels. I kept my Denali wheels Bc I do like the look. I just didn't want to go with a 265/50/20 for two reasons. 1. The sidewall is smaller than my stock 255/55/20 and it looks very weak. I also did not want the odometer reading more miles than I'm actually traveling (255/55= 31.1" 265/50= 30.5").

I have been wondering about tires size as well. I have time before getting wheels and tires, so plenty of research to be done. I will not be lifting my truck since it will be mostly used for towing. I really like the look of thick tires though, so I am wondering about the thickest tires that can be put on these trucks. I am currently looking at the 18x9 Fuel Vectors. I have also toyed with the possibility of putting Bushwacker flares on, which would allow for another 1.5" of thickness.

Thoughts? Suggestions? TIA

I've been hopping between older threads here and haven't gotten a real concrete answer about max size tire on 20's. I'm looking at a helo he914 20x9 and was considering 275/50r20 considering it's very close to stock height. 275/55 will run higher and very close and rub the flaps. Will 285/50 work? This is a more popular size. Not really interested in a lift.

Was using this for reference.
