    We have a 98 K1500 Pickup with the Z71 package. The truck came stock with 265/75/16. We want something a little wider and taller, that sticks out a little more..make the truck look more like a truck.

    Will 285/75/16 (33.1x11.3 overall size for trailcutter mud terrain) rub for street use? A bit of mud, very little trails with rocks..(going in april, that will be the only trip to trails like that).. Will be on sand a bit too but that dosent need flex.

    Lifts are out of the question for this daily driver, and we dont want to fendertrim unless its very minor and hardly noticable.

    The Trailcutter M/T specs are here-

    Ok stock wheels they will be ok. Maybe a LITTLE torsion bar crank and trimming, but on aftermarket wheels they will rub.

    Stock z71 wheels =) Wish they made aftermarket wheels that looked like the z71s, then i could have them on my Jimmy.

    I asked because i saw my friends 94 fullsize blazer, and his 265s look like they almost rub, which is why i got worried 285s wouldnt fit. i think he has aftermarket wheels, and his truck might have had smaller stock tires i dont know.. i know its not a z71.

    Thanks

    This is his truck-

    Lol..that top is begging to be sawed off.. trying to get him to do it to the one hes about to get for a trailrig.. either cut it off forever or make a track system for it.

    My friend had 285's on his '96 Z71 before he SAS'ed it. He had the torsion bars cranked a bit and an add-a-leaf in the rear. The only rubbing was on the lower control arm when he turned the tires all the way to one side or the other.

    He did manage to get the front left tire to rub the upper lip of the fender when landing from a fairly good size jump, but that was the only time.
