The Question: Which size fits better on a leveled NNBS?

The Truck: 2010 Sierra 1500 CC 4x4, already have it.

The Wheels: 18x9 with 0 offest, already have them.

The Leveling Kit: 2" RC or 2.5" TGC is next on the list after tires.

The Dilemma: I found 275/70/18s for significantly less than the 285/65/18s that I've been eyeballing.

Right now, my hang up is that the rigs I've seen on here with 275 70 18s have either stock wheels, or close to stock offset with a small body lift. I'm too lazy and cheap for a body lift, but I have a sweet Milwaukee Sawzall, and I'm not afraid to use it. I realize that I'm kind of asking for rubbing with my offest, but I had to have these wheels. Does the slimmer width of the 275 make up for the increased height over a 285?

The wheels showed up today, and I'll be back home in around a month's time. I need to buy tires before some unforseen event takes all my deployment $.

If you took the time to read this post, thank you. If you can provide any advice or insight, I'll be forever in your debt.

I have 18x9 +0 offset wheels + 275/70/18 AT and with just 2.5" ccm leveler I rubbed out at about 1/2 turn in either direction. Not a huge deal but now with 1.5" body I barely barely rarely ever rub.

As far as I know from searching through hundreds of pages of google images, I have the only set of Centerline Turbines on a NNBS. They aren't making them anymore either. I almost got Fuel Hostages in chrome. These turned out a bit different than Centerline's picture, but I still like em for the $.

Thanks Bro. She would have rubbed, but I did the fender mod in the sticky before I bolted the new tires/wheels on. I'll throw on a body lift once my bank account recovers.

I ended up using the bottom spacer from the TGC kit and 5100s on the 1st setting up from stock.
