19.5's
#1
I just upgraded my 2008 GMC 2500 to 19.5" Vision wheels and 245/70/19.5 Toyo M608z traction tires. I'm very happy with the look and fit plus the extra 1k/lbs per tire capacity upgrade from my old Toyo MT tires. Tires don't rub with the truck leveled (new keys, or crank up the torsion bars) and they don't stick outside the fender well either.

The fit looks like they belong - nice looking rig! Probably looks even better with the camper loaded. A lot safer than stock too.
Upgrading to 19.5's usually has an entry tag of about three grand. Care to tell us what this ran?
I traded in the problematic 2014 Lance for an 1150 Arctic Fox - wish EC made the 1150.
The rig looks similar to this - nothing exceeds factory weight limits.

Thank you! I can't wait to load the camper on but I need to drive 50 miles unloaded then have the wheels retorqued per Les Schwab. I purchased the wheels, tires, tire siping, aluminum stems, lug nuts, new TPMS all around, and digital alignment. TPMS only last for about 7-10 years due to battery failure so I decided while it was all new...what's a couple more bucks? My grand total was $3,608.49 and no more worries! I'm running them at 80psi

My wife and I went clam digging at Long Beach this last weekend. We always take the truck and camper out on the beach for a "home base" for the dogs, gear, kitchen with lots of beer, and the all important outside shower! Both of our campers have had one but we see others that have to use buckets of water from inside to clean up. I aired up the new tires to 90psi in the rear and left the fronts at 80psi. The truck felt amazing side to side and tracked really well on and off the sand. It rolls smoother and more comfortable too. If you can afford them...get them!
