First off, how big a tire can I stuff under my stock suspension? And if I cranked the torsion bars? I have Goodyear Wrangler 265/75's on stock wheels now. I don't plan on lifting it anytime soon(can't talk the wife into it just yet). Final question, what is a cheap site to get the tires

Hey! I cant help but brag... but I picked up 5 BFG 315s on Hummer rims for $550 (including S&H) on EBay! I love em! Granted that was a rare deal, but I have similar deals for around $700 shipped. If you can fit em in there I think its an excellent way to go.

Get out the sawzall.285's or 305's are about as big as you can go stock without tearing it up...

I know a guy that was running 325/60/r18 Nittos Terra Grapplers on his stock supsension with the front leveling kit installed. This is just shy of 35" height. He said he had no problems, but I got to believe off-road that would present some problems.

Out!

On stock rims, I wouldn't go past the 265's. Anything more than that and you will be to narrow for them.

285's fit fine on stockers, but look alot better on 8 wides. You might want to check "sam's offroad" online, they sometimes have really good tire deals.

go as high as 285 that way it will still look good and show a little fender well.

If you like the look of higher narrower tires go with 285. I prefer the wider look of my 305-70-16 tires on stock rims. It fits my 2003 2500hd perfectly.(with 1.5-2 inches of torsion bar setting) But be careful if you drive on snow or ice. The wider you go the more dangerous it is.

this is as big a tire as you can fit with stock suspension. Period end of story, because fingers is cooler than everyone. ;)


Actually if you hacked it enough you could probably stuff 44's under there, but the question is, do you really want to?

I have as big a tires as fingers has on mine...

1toninit has an OBS truck though, so it's a little different. I woud say 285s without any hacking, 305s or maybe 315s if you want to cut the fenders some.

Fingers wrote that he has 365's on his truck and your profile says 315's unless you haven't updated it.

They are both only a bit over 34 inchs tall though. His are just real wide. 365/315 is width, 65/75 is percent of width to height... Stupid metrics, I much prefer 35x12.5...

365 65 16=34.7 x 14.4

315 75 16=34.6 x 12.4

Grr... I should have figured out how tall those 365's were. You got me on that one.

Those 38's are sweet! it'll only take a lil' sawzall action to make 'em stop rubbing ;)
