    I looking at new tires for my 11 2500hd it has 265 70 r18. I'm finding not a lot of options. I thought about getting 285 65 18 but I'm worried about rubbing once the plows on. I have my t bars turned up so the trucks leveled. Any input woul be great. Thanks

    I've got a new ford with 18s. I think it came with the same size as your chevy. I ditched the stock tires and got bf goodrich all terrains 275/70/18. Perfect size in my opinion. Not too tall, not too wide, they're 33.2" tall.

    Just bought cooper discoverer AT3. 275 70 18. They are worth every single penny! Truck is a tank!. Paid 195 a tire mounted.

    Do yourself a favor and buy equal bags for balancing. The wheel weights just collect salt and ruin the rim.

    I used Goodyear Adventurer Progrades last winter size 275n 70 18 on 2012 Silverado HD. Great plow tire and no rubbing. Also Have same size KO2. Awesome tire as well.
