Don't go black, and get 18s. 20 is just not enough tire with a 305 imo.
I agree.

The Terra Grappler is more of a off road tire than street tire :imo

My parents Suburban has Toyo Proxes S/T 305/50/R20s and they look awesome. Are you planning on going off road at all? Cause if you are, then stick with a 18'' tire unless you go 37'' or bigger, then a 20'' rim would suffice.

My Dad had that exact combo on his old '03 Silverado. He had 18'' Helo Maxx wheels on 325/60/R18 Terra Grapplers. It was awesome. I don't know if they'll fit on your Tahoe though.... his truck had a 4'' lift on it.
Here's a pic of the setup:

The tires on my truck currently are 265/75/16 which is calculated to be 31.6 inches...the 325/60/18 come out to like 33.2 inches, so i think they would fit because i still have room to spare in the wheelwells...

can u tell by this picture if you think i'd have enough room...if not, do you think a 3 inch body lift would let them clear?

if they won't clear, I think I am just gonna go with 20x10 chrome Helo's and use a 305/50/20 Nitto terra grappler tire...they are 32.09 inches so not that much bigger than the 265s i have now, plus they have a cooler looking/more aggressive tread...

325's on x10's will not fit without rubbin or some serious crankage at stock height.
