A new look for my old truck. Came off a 2019 Tahoe.

Bought Tahoe on the weekend, drove it go the tire store Monday for custom wheels. Less than 200 miles on them. I paid $900 for them, sold my old 18s in a day for $450.

I like it A LOT. Have a friend that did that on a similar truck a few years ago, it actually looks better in person I think!

It is interesting to me that GM still uses similar offset and backspacing on their trucks after
all these years. I guess chassis engineering is low on their list of upgrade priorities. I bet the radios from both vehicles won't interchange!

Nice looking truck. I would have preferred the GMC, but it took me over a year to find a nice regular cab short bed with the 5.3 at a reasonable price. (Would have preferred blue as well). I bought the previous 2014 Silverado 18" wheels off craigslist for $500 4 years ago when I bought the truck and sold them yesterday on Facebook marketplace for $450. Picked up the 20s off Facebook for $900.

That's a good deal depending on the tire OEM
Mine has 250K miles on it...….Chevy no longer makes a RCSB, new is a Ford or Dodge. I bought mine new for $21K, replacement is around $30k+, hard for me to justify. Plus I need something to pull my 20K lb load
I been lookin...……..but my tired 4.8 may just get upgraded with a...…….6.0 stroker imagine that

Continentals. The same ones I was going to put on the 18 inch wheels. About $850 all in from Discount Tire.
