The 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe brings with it a complete overhaul (re-engineering and redesign), marking the first year of production of the all-new, fifth-generation model. The all-new full-size SUV features many changes and new features, including an all-new exterior design, a revamped cabin, standardized availability of the GM Hydra-Matic 10L80 10-speed automatic transmission, an independent rear suspension, the introduction of a diesel engine, four new exterior colors, and, of course, new wheel options, among other things. Today, we’ve compiled a comprehensive guide to 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe wheels, complete with pictures, availability info, and other details for your browsing and shopping pleasure.
In total, the all-new Tahoe offers 15 wheel choices. The rims are made from either steel or aluminum, range from 18 to 22 inches in diameter, and vary in design, width, and finish. It’s worth noting that these are the very same wheel sets available for the larger, 2021 Suburban.
Before we get into the actual lineup, we should note that 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe wheel availability varies by trim level. For instance, LS and LT models come with 18-inch wheels standard, while 20-inch wheels are standard on Premier and Z71 models, and 22-inch wheels are featured on RST and High Country models.
All 2021 Tahoe wheels available from the factory are shown above along with the corresponding RPO code, except for the dealer-installed 22-inch, 6-spoke split chrome wheels (SEU) – photos of which are currently not available. We’re also not including the standard, full-size spare 17-inch wheel (S2B). Note that certain images represent two separate RPO codes since certain wheel options include a second, complete set of wheels.
