2016 Chevrolet 2500 HD Gas

Our new truck has 20" wheels, 6 1/2' bed. Because truck bed height seems be high, once the the fifth wheel is attached the FW may not be level ? Any advise would be appreciated.

You won't know till you go to hook up to it. I have a 2500 with 20inch tires and our 5th sits perfectly level.

Once you hitched up did you notice any drop in the truck rear/ if so did you add any air bags etc: ?
Thanks

Wheel size alone will not affect the height of your truck. It will be the actual size of the tire mounted that will determine if the truck sits the same, higher or lower.

The stock tire for my truck is 255 70 18
My upgraded tire is 285 55 20

Comparing the height of each, the 285 55 20 tire raises my truck only 1/8" which is most likely the closest match they found. If Toyota installed 285 50 20 tires, the truck would be lowered and it they installed 285 60 20 tires the truck would be raised. Larry G.
