    Nice Yukon! How are the 285s? My Tahoe came with 265s and it would be nice to go a little bigger without having to lift the truck.

    (anyone can respond) What kind of issues, if any, do you newer truck owners have with the larger tires, in relation to the trucks PCM?

    I'm not digging for anything here other than information for curiosities sake. Just wondering with the OBD2 how much it seems to "tolerate" when outside of the stock parameters.

    Thanks! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gifI did the 2" t-bar and rear block lift and the 285s fir fine, no rubbing at all. Some people said I'd need to trim the air dam, but that is not a problem at all with how high mine sits.

    I don't have any issues at all with mine, most of my problems come from the truck being a POS. /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif Mine is OBDI, so I can't answer for everyone. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    Ooops, my mistake, I assumed it was '96+.
