285/75R16's (the width is pushing it for a 16x6.5" rim) or a 255/85R16 (a hair taller than the 285/75R16 but narrower)

My local tire shops don't recommend going beyond 265 in width on the 6.5" rim. It can certainly be done without problems, but that's not to say it should be done.


In fact, GM made the SRW 3500 model's rim 7" wide just to put on the 265's.

I wore out the set on the black 03 and I run 60# air because of pulling trailer a lot.


The tread wore pretty even too.


I get some time I'll take a pic of them if anyone wants.

Is the 7" wide model the same style? That would be a nice upgrade for running 285's! Anyone got any pics of them.....

Has anyone upgraded to 285s, without other mods?


If so what kind of tire and how do you like them?

Yeah, but on the bright side, look how cheap 17x8.5" H2 wheels are!

You can find a set of four H2 wheels on Ebay for $150 plus shipping. These are the dull-brushed appearing, production versions. A chromed set of H2 wheels will set you back at least $700.


Thank goodness those H2 owners love to run low profile, sport tires on their off-road rigs.

The H2 wheels are made by Alcoa, forged aluminum. Same as the PYO's.
