I am seriously leaning towards the pirelli, and new rims. Height is same however I need to speak with my tire guy and see if I can get either a wider tire for stance and appearance or have him point out a safe offset rim in the one model we like.
I Switched out the OEM tires for some Pirelli Scorpion A/T Plus - 265/70R17E
Love the tires, the ride quality and very low road noise is incredible!

Have any pics? I like my oem rims but if I'm going to do the level kit and wider tires wife said look at rims too, 🤯🤔🙏. Might do it in stages not sure yet til I speak with my buddy who owns a tire store. Went to high school together so I trust him and he very fair on pricing and won't try to upsale us.

Wondering if I can move up from 18 inch wheels to 20 inch that allows a wider pirelli the same tire just a size bigger 275/60R/20 as opposed to factory 265/60R18 without having to trim anything (level lift going on) And how much affect on mileage and safety? I'll research the weight difference. Tirerack stated I would have to use my oem tpms

Funny they don’t feel any heavier than the OEM tires? There is zero affect on power and really smooth on the pavement.

Tirerack has same size or much bigger but don't have that one in a 275.

Sorry I should've quoted myself better, the 275 is heavier than our oem tire it's a 265. The perelli you have is 41 lb.

Thanks for the pictures @Sign1941. The tires are looking real nice on the stock wheels. Sounds like you are happy with them. :thumbsup:
