Having a 2" daystar leveling kit installed on my 2007 chevy silverado (new body style/ 2wd). The 4x4 dealer im having my leveling installed at says i can fit 325/60r18 nitto terra grapplers while only having to trim plastic which i have no problem with. Any input would help.
Thanks,
Joey Capone

Seems like an awfully big tire to be running with only a leveling kit.....

basically a 33x13.50x18


I tried my Mickey Thompson Baja Claws that are 325/60/18 mounted on 18x10 with -21mm backspacing and there was no hope.

I installed my Zone 1.5" BL and it's a lot better but it's still too close for comfort. You could do some trimming, but with my offset, I still feel it would be a bit excessive.

Your best bet is to at least get a 3" body lift on top of the leveling kit. You should be able to clear it then with minor trimming. Also, your wheel backspacing is going to play a major roll in how much you will need to trim.

If you have an option of getting a little bit narrower of a tire, it'd probably be your best bet. I have considered switching to a 12.50 tire to see how much better that will make the fitment.


This photo is just with the 2.5" CCM leveling kit.

I have a 6 inch lift with the same tire size and I can make them rub every now and then! I would look into to a size smaller on the width, or go bigger on the lift.

I got the tires to fit.
325/60R18 nitto terra grapplers.
I ended up using a 2.25" ReadyLIFT Leveling Kit.
I beat back the metal on the inside of the front fender about a quarter of an inch now they dont rub at all.

i fit them on my truck and prolly spent half as much. if not less. my leveling kit was $200 and i beat back the metal of the inner fender just a little bit so it doesnt rub at all.
