Question about 2006 Chevrolet Silverado 1500HD
I want to change the wheel diameter to 20In, beside 17 original, pros and cons to do this, usually I cargo and carry equipment, is 4x4.
The key to all of this is that by changing the rolling circumference of your tire, you are also changing the amount of leverage that must be exerted to get the vehicle rolling, and to maintain speed uphill. This translates to additional stress on driveline components and can also have a negative effect on fuel mileage. On flat ground, it can add to fuel milage by acting as an 'always-on" overdrive. Generally it's not good to mess with larger than stock setups unless you have a specific goal in mind that is not strictly "cosmetic"!
