Just upgraded my stock wheels and tires with Fuel Blitz 20x10 -18 wheels wrapped with 295/55R20 Nitto Ridge Grapplers

Looks great! Runs at full lock. Just giving honest results to those looking to upgrade.

Rubs @ full lock. Nothing severe. Just wanted to share honest results with everyone.
I appreciate that honesty. I hope as time goes on we can build a comprehensive list of setups and expectations on the ZRX suspension.

I will request you post pics of the wheels turned so other members can noodle out their future choices. Myself included.
 
Sorry, I’m new to this forum and any forum for that matter.

I just got black 2023 ZR2 Silverado. I want to put 35” Nitto MT’s with 20” Fuel Vapors but really don’t want to lift truck very much to minimize gap and retain stock ride

What’s my options? I’ll consider trimming wheel wells if it’ll look good.

Upgrade the stock wheels to a 295 versus a 275
 
Thx. Isn’t 295’s not much bigger than the stock 33’s? 1 inch as the ole saying goes.

if I’m spending over $4k for new wheel & tires i want to see a significant upgrade
Do a tire size compare on the web. A 295 is about 34.5" high where a 275 is around 33".

Looking good. Does it rub at the back of the wheel well or front side? Any more pics showing the offsets or how much do they stick out from the fenders?

Thank you. The rubbing isn’t horrible but hopefully you can see in the pics it’s rubs in the front and rear (especially full lock in reverse). Nobody is getting 35’s on one of these without suspension mods and cutting.
I might eventually trim a little bit. The thing with the tire size I chose, it’s just slightly less then a true 33” tall and about 12.25” wide.

Thx for the info. That would probably make sense for me if 35’s aren’t a viable option.
I would only do 35’s if you plan on doing a 4-6” lift simultaneously. I honestly don’t know what available options there are. I had RPG Strut collars on my Raptor to help eliminate rubbing. If I were to do it again I would do Eibach coil overs to level it versus the strut collars. I feel both are better options then the pucks to add an inch to 2 inches.
 
I’ve included the actual tire specs from Nitto since actual true dimensions can be a point of disagreement. I ran 35x12.5R20 BFG KO2’s on my Gen 2 Raptor and their dims don’t match Nitto’s exactly either for the same exact size. I was going to run LT305x55R20’s and the fitment was so close the shop I purchased my wheels & tires from said let’s back down to a LT295x55R20’s. At first we thought they just fit! Reality is they do run a little. I hate when people exaggerate when you read these forums and are trying to figure out which way to go on your personal vehicle. I’m giving all of you an honest report post upgrade. Expect minor rubbing.
The wheels are Fuel Blitz 20x10 w/ -18 offset.
A possible consideration would be a 20x9 wheel with 0 offset. (No guarantee that will resolve the problem)
