    275/55 R20's are ~32inch, so that is equal to 265/75 R16's. I started with 265/75's on my Old 02 GMC and when I put the 275/55 R20's on the speedo nearly the same according to my GPS. I had factory 08 Denali wheels and tires.

    Go to grimmjeeper(dot)com for a gear ratio calculator. Punch in your gear and tire specs, motor RPMs, and speeds driven and see what you get. The site has been a favorite for me to play with gear ratios and tire sizes for my Toyota FJ40. Very informative site.

    John are those stock 16" rims with 0 offset?



    275/55/20 are slightly wider and a tad taller than 265/75/16, but close.

    The first number is width in mm, second is ratio of width to wall height, so multiply first number by the decimal of the second, multiply that by 2, and add last to get the theoretical tire height in mm. divide by 25.4 to get inches. Installed height is usually about 1/2 to 1 inch shorter though.

    Well they don't rub, I'll qualify that by saying my Son didn't tell me he was going to install 2 inch lift blocks in the rear and crank the tortion bars about 5 turns. I must say it does look good sitting like that.

    The front wheel looks like it is setting pretty far out at the edge of the wheel well. Is that a stock 0 offset wheel, or do the 16" have some negative offset?

    My stock 15s were 0 offset and I never had nearly that much fender clearance either, much different suspension on the C vs K.

    They are the stock wheels. I see what you are saying and I think it is because the wheels are turned slightly to the right in the picture. I will try to get some pictures in the daylight if I am lucky enough to get home from work while it is still daylight.
