Ok. Got interesting situation.

Our 2912 Silverado is on 20" tires, 265/60/20 Goidsmear to be exact.

This size is RARE!!!

Jump to 275's and they graciously tack on another $45-50!!!!

Wow.

Anyone have tip on locating? Looks like another $1000 killshot!

When I got my Excursion the original owner had put 22 in wheels and very expensive high speed tires on it. He gave me the original wheels. I removed the 22s and sold them on E Bay for $1,000.00 and mounted Michelins on the original wheels. I travel and did not want to be sitting around for a day or 2 while a tire was shipped in from who knows where if i had a flat.

If you can't find one while at home think about while on the road.

First step: Find the vehicle tire placard. It will be on the driver's door. That will show you the original tire size and the proper pressure for that size.

Second step: If the size listed there is a 20" - use that size (and pressure). If not, post what is there.

You should NOT use any tire without the letters "LT" in front of the size, nor should you use any tire with a lower load index.

I see that there are LT275/65R20's - but those are physically larger. There is probably enough room, but unless someone actually measures the fenderwell, you can't be sure.

Then that is the one to get. DISCOUNT TIRE carries it.
