Out of the 36 factory tire and wheel sets that will be offered at GM dealerships next year, 15 will be of the 20-inch or "dub" variety, designed for full-size trucks like the Tahoe, Suburban and Avalanche. Pricing will start at $2,750 for the 10x2ers, and run up to almost $4K, numbers which include installation, balancing and speedo recalibration. The General may even approve 20+ inch wheels for its redesigned truck line in 2007. The decision to make these wheels available comes after GM urged dealers not to sell off-brand aftermarket wheel and tires, which could not be defended in their product liability acts. However, understanding the large money involved in aftermarket wheel sales, GM decided to cash in on the trend and bring their own wheels to the market, which can be covered under warranty.
