The all-new 2019 Chevrolet Silverado offers one standard wheel and 12 other wheel choices. We’ve compiled a comprehensive guide to 2019 Silverado wheels, complete with pictures, availability info and every other detail.
The standard wheel is a 17-inch steel rim, while the remaining 2019 Silverado wheel choices are aluminum and range from 17 to 22 inches in diameter, with varying designs, widths and finishes.
Wheel availability varies by trim level. For instance, the RD6 steel wheel is 17 inches in diameter, 8 inches wide, is finished in Ultra Silver, and is only available for Work Truck (1WT) models, while the RVA aluminum wheel is 22 inches in diameter, 9 inches wide, and features a polished finish.
All factory 2019 Silverado wheels are shown in this gallery.
It’s worth noting that 22-inch steel transit wheels assigned RPO Code RBR (not pictured) are used to ship 2019 Silverado models ordered with a set of dealer-installed (LPO) 22-inch wheels. Doing so also allows the factory to ship the Silverado with an alignment for a 22-inch wheel.

About Chevrolet Silverado
The Chevrolet Silverado is a lineup of full-size pickup trucks sold primarily in North America, but also in the Middle East and in certain markets in South America. Slotting above the mid-size Chevrolet Colorado (known as the S10 in some markets), the Silverado is Chevrolet's largest pickup truck and currently consists of the 1500 light duty model, two Heavy Duty models - the 2500HD and 3500HD, as well as Conventional Class 4, Class 5 and Class 6 Medium Duty models - the Silverado 4500HD and Silverado 5500HD and Silverado 6500HD.
The 2018 Chevy Silverado represents the fifth model year of the third-generation Silverado. It is based on the GM K2 platform shared with other full-size pickup trucks and SUVs from GM. Though the line sold relatively well, it became less competitive in the marketplace with time when compared to its primary Ford F-Series rival, due to lacking cutting-edge features such as turbocharged engines, a rugged off-road variant such as the Ford F-150 Raptor, a diesel engine option in the light duty (1500) model, and also various modern features and equipment.
Luckily, an all-new Silverado arrived for the 2019 model year that addresses many of the issues of its predecessor model. Customers began taking delivery of the all-new truck in the second half of August 2018.
Chevrolet says that the all-new 2019 Silverado is the result of over 7,000 customer interviews - the most intensive research in its history. The new model uses higher grade alloy steel in the bed floor as well as various mixed materials that result in a reduction in weight and improved performance, with weight falling about 450 pounds. The truck also offers an expanded amount of models for a total of eight, including the new 2019 Silverado Trailboss.
Riding on GM's new T1 platform shared with other future GM full-size trucks and SUVs, the 2019 Silverado offers more technology, convenience features, and engine/transmission combinations. While details of five powertrain combos have already been revealed, GM has not yet shared details of the new inline-six 3.0L Duramax Diesel engine, only stating that it will be "best-performing" and that it will be mated to GM's new 10-speed transmission.
Having overhauled the Silverado 1500, Chevy will next overhaul the Silverado Heavy Duty. The brand released a teaser image of the upcoming all-new 2020 Silverado HD in April 2018. The truck will be revealed and launched in the 2019 calendar year as a 2020 model year vehicle. The model family will be comprised of the Silverado 2500HD and Silverado 3500HD models, ride on a more capable version of the new T1 platform, share many technologies and design elements with the 2019 Silverado 1500, while being more robust and capable.
The 2019 Silverado Medium Duty series, comprised of the Silverado 4500HD, 5500HD, and 6500HD, completes the overhauled Silverado family.
The Chevrolet Silverado is built at the following GM plants:
- GM Flint Assembly in Flint, Michigan, USA
- GM Fort Wayne Assembly in Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA
- GM Oshawa Assembly in Oshawa, Ontario, Canada
- GM Silao in Silao, Guanajuato, Mexico
- Navistar Springfield Assembly in Springfield, Ohio, USA (Silverado Medium Duty only)
