I want to possibly lift my truck with the stock 09 silverado 17inch wheels. Will this work?

Stock 17's with stock tires will clear. Wider tires on stock 17's will rub on the upper ball joint, so we recommend a wheel with less backspacing than the factory.

We did technically put a set of stock 20's on the truck, but with a 12.50 wide tire, it was too close. The factory 20's had 6" of backspacing, that's why we recommend 5.75" of backspacing to gain some extra clearance.

There are some guys out that who do wheel spacers which would correct the clearance issue, but we don't handle those at this time.
