    Never done it, but I would think laying them on their side you could get them stacked 3 high (that's if you can lift them in that position /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif) 2 piles of 3 and a pile of 2 should fit ok. I'm just having a hard time seeing 4 (12.5", 13.5"? wide) tires making it between the wheel wells. /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif

    Either way...snap a pic of it when you've got them loaded and put it in the "why suburbans are better than K5's post" /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I got four 38.5" x 16" x 16.5" Swampers into my '88K5.....

    Three in back, and one in the passenger seat.



    ....I'd put my money on that fact that you could get 8 smaller tires into a Suburban. I know if it were ME packing them in, they'd fit! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Well I am sure you will find a way to fit them.
    I fit 4 40x18x15 boggers and 4 15x10" wheels in my K5 all inside with the rear seat folded down, I still had room for some parts I was picking up too.
