Would this tire and wheel set be a dead fit and the correct height for my 08 LTZ currently running 275/55R20
From CL ad "Like new set of (4) wheels/tires from 2017 GMC Sierra. Tires has less than 2k miles on them. Tires are Bridgestone Dueler AT size 265/70/17"

I would really like to have the taller tires and smaller wheels.

Just found a tire calculator, Looks like around 1/2 mph error at 60mph and even at 100 mph less than 1mph error. So good enough on that.

I've only owned the 08 a couple of weeks but the thin tires aren't growing on me. I'm old enough to think a truck should have more rubber between the wheel and the road I guess.

Will they clear the brakes parts?

That's a concern. Was hoping someone here would know. According to codes 17" spares were used in 2008. Unless I put one on in the parking lot where the seller wants to meet, I'll be making a $750 gamble.

Thanks BainMan, New wheels on today with no issues and they look great. I'll get a photo tomorrow. It looks much more like a truck now.

Thanks for the likes! I'm very pleased with them and sold the originals the next day on CL. Recovered 75% of the cost of the newer set and better tires.
