With a wide range of models – regular, extended and crew cabs – the trucks are used for many applications, and the tires selected are intended to match those varied uses. The 2014 Silverado and Sierra models are all-new and loaded with innovative features that help to achieve excellent fuel economy, more towing power, extensive interior comfort and much more.

  • Goodyear Eagle GT II in size P285/50R20.  Classic styling and all-season traction make this a popular sport performance tire.
  • Goodyear Eagle LS2 in size P275/55R20. Features include all-season traction and a smooth, quiet ride.
  • Goodyear Assurance CS Fuel Max in size P265/65R18. This is a fuel-efficient tire that features a Fuel Saving Tread Compound.
