Ok, besides the Vette I’ve been GM truckless since 2012 and I’ve missed it. While I still have the need for my Audi Q7 so that’s still in the stable the Ranger never really did it for me, I need a full size truck. I’ve been quietly looking for a 2008-2013 Chevy or GMC standard cab short bed and I’ve been having a real hard time finding anything reasonable or not beat to death with 200k on it. Today I opened up CL and found my new (to me) baby, a 2010 GMC 1500 Sierra standard cab long bed 4x4 with 87k on it. It’s a ne owner, no accidents truck and he’s an older gentleman who had all work done at the dealer, over maintained. So, I’ve already ordered the Bilstein front leveling shocks and new rear shocks but now I’m trying to figure out what tire and wheel combo to go with, not sure what will fit, I guess I’ve gotten a little rusty with the GM info. Anyway, here are the pictures, I don’t have it yet but it should be in my driveway on Tuesday.

You may get a little bit of rub at lock at the rear of the wheel well. I had to bend the bottom of the front fenders back slightly and used a flat elevator screw to pull the fender liner back to clear my tires. The passenger side is fine, the driver's side still occasionally rubs. I need to remove that and take the heat gun and reform that side a little.

Ok, I can handle that, makes me feel a little better.

Thanks

I'm running 285/60-20--which is almost 34" (33.5). Anything smaller should clear no problems.

It's an HD, but if you are putting a couple inches of lift in there, it is real close to HD height
