    I was just about to ask the size question for my 95 but I just got my answer that 265's are the largest tire to stuff on stock rims. I was hoping to get some 33's but I guess that I need to get bigger rims now also. I am trying to avoid lifting my truck so can someone tell me if a 16x10 rim with 33's will fit my stock 95 burb. If it makes any difference it is a 4x4 but not lifted. Thanks John

    Some guys are getting away with 255/85R16's and no rubbing. They're a little taller that the 265/75, but narrower (the main reason they don't rub).

    on a 1500 you should be able to stuff 285/75r16's under there with only a little tweak to your torsion bars and not impact ride. on the 2500 series you should be able to get 305/70r16's in there with a little torsion action.

    I'm running 305/70r16 BFG AT's on my stock k2500 but i did upgrade to the 16x8 bling bling. ;-)

    Dan,
    Any idea if a 16x10 will fit under my 1500 without a lift? or do I have to stick to the 16x8 size? Thanks again. John

    No way 16x10's will fit. On 16x8's you'll probably have to trim to fit 285's, you can only fit those on stock rims without mods. Even though 16x8's are only 1 inch wider, the backspacing is different.
