Ok, I'm sorry if this has been posted but I cant find anything specific for what I'm looking for.
I would like to know what size spacer I would need to get for my stock 18x8 rims on my 2010 Silverado to make them stick out about 1" from my fenders. I have the r/c level kit on it right now, running 275/65r18 and plan on doing the 3.5" r/c suspension lift this summer.. and going with a 285/65r18 mud terrain tire or an aggressive all terrain . I want to stick with the factory rims.
Thank you..

That rc "susp" lift u want is just a stretched level kit. Run what you want but I wouldn't recommend it. As far as wheel spacers go use a tape measure and see where u want the wheels to sit

Why wouldn't you recommend it? and run a tape measure and then just get the spacer for the inches that I want huh? that easy?

The rc kit is a stretched level it's not a lift. Your tres and lower bjs will be stretched 3.5". measuring for the spacers is pretty easy

I rode on a 2011 with a 3.5 "lift" / level....rode like a chuck wagon. ....No thanks.
2" level or a real suspension lift only.

^i got behind a 2014 Sierra today coming down the hwy. it had an obvious stretched level either the fabtech 4" or rc 3.5" level and 35s. Every bump it would hit the front tires would wobble and look like they were gonna fall off.

That kinda sucks.. I use my truck for plowing and I didn't want to go to tall.. What do you guys think of the 5" r/c suspension lift or is that still a stretched level kit? and would it be to tall for plowing?

If you don't want to go big zone makes a very good 4" kit. It's an actual lift not a stretched level
