Leveling 2015 Silverado LTZ

I have a 2015 Chevy Silverado LTZ and I would like to level it and put a little larger tires. I was wanting to see if any of y'all out there have a truck similar that are leveled and if so what tire size are you running?
I am thinking about the Rough Country Leveling Kit as it is super cheap and I have read pretty good reviews on it. I would be keeping the stock rims but would like a little taller tire to fill the wheel wells a little better and for a little better over all look.
Pics are always good. I would like to see the results of anyone out there with a similar leveling kit and larger tires.
Thanks.

Re: Leveling 2015 Silverado LTZ

I found this one but the truck is a Z71. My truck is a 2 wheel drive so I know that this is not a good example. But the owner of this one fit 285's on it. I am not sure a 2 wheel drive will fit a 285 under it with a 2" lift in the front. Looking for y'alls examples. But this is pretty much the look I would want to get. I like it because they kept the stock rim which is what I want to do as well.

Re: Leveling 2015 Silverado LTZ

I've installed several sets of leveling blocks like you showed...the u shaped spacer...much easier install than than the old style that went on top of the strut..I run 285s on stock wheels..first set of goodyears rub just a touch when turning in a dip...running nittos now and have no rubbing issues...but all the ones I've done are 4wd..
new 4wd parked next to a 2wd have very little height difference. ..you could do some measuring of both with stocks tires and get an idea of how much clearance to fender difference ..as long as both have same diameter tire..

You might get more responses on the 2007-up page. This might not be seen by the people with the right answers.

Re: Leveling 2015 Silverado LTZ

A 2" will give you just a little rake, and the 2 1/2" will level it. I've got a similar truck (2015 LTZ Double cab) with the same rims as you, and I'm running 275/60/20's without issue at stock height. With your level on, I'd go to a 275/65/20 tire (1" taller than mine and 2" taller than stock). That seems to be the biggest you can safely go without rubbing at full lock or max compression.

I didn't even know there was one. I got on there because of my 72 Super. I didn't see it on the home page. Now that I went to the forums section I could see it.

Thanks for the info. I guess I will be shopping around for a 2.5 inch leveling kit. And shopping for a good 275/65/20 tire to run on the truck. Time to call in that favor to my buddy at Discount Tire.

Re: Leveling 2015 Silverado LTZ

Have done several with 2" coil spacers (top mount) and 285's. They look good and ride fine. I have also removed three and put them back to stock due to a popping/hitch/catch in the steering rack.
