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.

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 ChevroletÂ Silverado
The Chevrolet Silverado is a lineup of full-size pickup trucks soldÂ primarily in North America, but also in the Middle East and inÂ certain markets in South America. Slotting above the mid-sizeÂ Chevrolet ColoradoÂ (known as the S10 in some markets),Â the Silverado is Chevrolet's largest pickup truck and currently consists of the 1500 light duty model, twoÂ Heavy Duty modelsÂ - the 2500HD and 3500HD, as well asÂ Conventional Class 4, Class 5 and Class 6 Medium DutyÂ models - theÂ Silverado 4500HDÂ andÂ Silverado 5500HDÂ and Silverado 6500HD.
TheÂ 2018Â Chevy SilveradoÂ represents theÂ fifthÂ model year of the third-generation Silverado. It is based on theÂ GM K2 platformÂ shared with other full-size pickup trucks and SUVs from GM. Though theÂ lineÂ sold relativelyÂ well,Â itÂ became less competitive in the marketplace with time when compared to its primaryÂ FordÂ F-Series rival, due to lacking cutting-edge features such asÂ turbocharged engines, a rugged off-road variant such as theÂ Ford F-150 Raptor, a diesel engine option in the light duty (1500) model,Â and also variousÂ modern features and equipment.
Luckily,Â an all-new SilveradoÂ arrived for the 2019 model year that addressesÂ manyÂ of theÂ issuesÂ ofÂ 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 isÂ the result ofÂ over 7,000 customer interviewsÂ - the most intensive research in itsÂ history. The new modelÂ usesÂ higher grade alloy steel in the bed floorÂ as well as variousÂ mixed materialsÂ that resultÂ in aÂ reduction in weight and improved performance, with weight falling about 450 pounds. The truck alsoÂ offers an expanded amount of modelsÂ for a total of eight, includingÂ the newÂ 2019 Silverado Trailboss.
RidingÂ onÂ GM's newÂ T1 platformÂ shared with other future GM full-size trucks and SUVs, the 2019Â Silverado offers more technology, convenience features, andÂ engine/transmission combinations. While details ofÂ five powertrain combos have already been revealed,Â GM has not yet shared details of theÂ newÂ inline-sixÂ 3.0L Duramax Diesel engine, only stating that it will be "best-performing" and that it will be mated toÂ GM's new 10-speedÂ transmission.
Notably,Â the outgoing,Â Chevy will continue manufacturing and selling theÂ outgoing, K2 generation SilveradoÂ alongside the all-new model for a limited amount of time in limited configurations.
Having overhauled the Silverado 1500, Chevy will next overhaul the Silverado Heavy Duty. The brandÂ released a teaser imageÂ of theÂ upcoming all-new 2020 Silverado HD in April 2018 and announced the vehicle in November 2018. The truck will launch in the 2019 calendar year as a 2020 model.
The 2020 Silverado HD willÂ be comprisedÂ of the Silverado 2500HD and Silverado 3500HD that ride on a moreÂ robust and capableÂ version of the new T1 platform when compared to the 2019 Silverado 1500, whileÂ sharing many high-techÂ features and design elementsÂ withÂ its light duty brother.
Completing the overhauled SilveradoÂ family is the 2019 Silverado Medium Duty series, comprised of the Silverado 4500HD, 5500HD, and 6500HD.
The ChevroletÂ Silverado is builtÂ atÂ the followingÂ GM plants:
- GM Flint AssemblyÂ in Flint, Michigan, USA
- GM Fort Wayne AssemblyÂ in Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA
- GM Oshawa AssemblyÂ Â inÂ Oshawa, Ontario, Canada
- GM SilaoÂ in Silao, Guanajuato, Mexico
- Navistar Springfield Assembly in Springfield, Ohio, USA (Silverado Medium Duty only)

Completely Hypothetical…but I’d have to go with NZT or SEV. I like the black or grey and silver combo. The contrast makes them stand out. I’d have to see them on the truck first though. Sometimes a great looking truck and great looking wheels just don’t look great together.
For me , i dont understand the point of 22 inches on a truck ? , it will affect the payload , towing , acceleration , breaking , ride quality ,fuel efficiency , off roading and the tiers are expensive to be replace ?! dose it worth all of that for good looking for sum ?
as for the options , Why there is no light weight offroading option, such as those u could find on Toyota s TRD ,Ford Raptor or Ram Rebel ?
the ones u find in Trail Boss or the Z71 are regular ones with some paintjob.
I agree, 22″ on a truck is not for me, I am having a hard time liking the looks of this truck but the wheels are “A game”. Chevy did a great job with them.
It’s strange but I’m actually thinking I like the looks of the lower end trims better than the high end. A Trail Boss Custom is really starting to look better to me than a Trail Boss LT although the face is hard to get use to.
I’ll take whatever ones that come with the trim level that I am buying. No sense paying extra to remove perfectly good wheels and tires just for different ones.
The placement of the Silverado and Z71 badges looks plain stupid ! Luckily they arent impossible to get off and if I do buy the Z71 I am looking at this afteroon, I will be moving the badge back to where it belongs !
