    I am looking to upgrade from the current baloneys on my truck to a bigger set of meats. I don't know what I have on it currently, nor do I care because they are either the stock size or smaller. I am not changing the wheels, just the tires. They are the stock Chevy truck wheels. I don't want any rubbing and I am not going to do a TB tweak. I just want some bigger meats under my truck as it sits stock. Can anybody help me out here? Thanks! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    if you think you can handle the tbars and maybe trimming the front air dam a tad...minor rubbing somewhere...you can fit 285s and 305s ...other than that 265s are as big as you can go. btw 245s/265s are stock on chevy 4x4s

    I have a 1999 Tahoe 4 door that has 285/75R16 Wrangler AT/S tires on it. They are mounted on Cadiallac Escalade wheels so it is factory offset. I dont have any rubbing problems anywhere. I dont wheel it at all but there is alot of room around them. Shoot me an email if you want some pics.

    My 96 Tahoe has a 6" lift and 35's. The wheels are Centerline (15x8) I used to bur a little bit up front until I took the sledgehammer to it. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif [​IMG]

    Hey MOABDAD, that is a sweet truck. If I had the money, I'd be doing that to mine. I'm gonna look into some 285s.

    You could probably get away with 31" tires. I ran them with no lift and no problems. Now, I have the same set up as MOABDADC22... 6 inches and 35's... and I love it! /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif

    I had a 94 1500 Suburban- with 305's 16x8 rims- had to trip the black air dam thing under the front bumper- it didn't rub- but I was afraid if I banked off the highway- it might...no problems no adjusting anything etc...

    just put 285's on our D/A with no problems either. Though "they" said can't go bigger than 265's without reprograming allison- "they" lied.

    No, but it sure does look a hell of a lot like it without the shiny rims.

    Here's a picture of it with a 3" lift and 33's...
    3" lift and 33" BFG-MT's

    and a picture with the 6" lift, 35's, and black rockcrawlers...
    now with 6" lift and 35" BFG-AT's

    at my shop we do 285's on these trucks all day long with no mod's. If you stay with a 16" wheel and 4" lift you can do 315/75/16 or a 35x12.50x16 with minor triming. /forums/images/graemlins/truck.gif

    I have 285/75R16 on stock GM wheels. They are Cadillac Escalade wheels but they have same offset and width as factory GM wheels.

    Hey guys, I have a '99 Suburban 1500, I currently have the stock 245/75R16 Firestones, getting ready to put new meats on it. I was thinking 265/75R16 as I was told that is the biggest I can put on it with the fender flares. Would 285's fit, or would I have to trim the front fender flares. The Burby never goes off-road...just daily driver/tow rig.
