I just put the BFG AT's I had on my K1500, before I traded it in, onto my 2500 HD CC/SB D 4x4. I had to trim the valences in the wheel wells some for clearance, mostly on the drivers side. What kind of tire pressures are others running in their BFG AT's ?
What load range are they? That makes a difference. Since they were on a 1/2 tonner, they could be LRC and not LRD or LRE.
I have 265's on mine, and I run 50 in the front and 45 in the rear unloaded. The front axle never really changes that much unless you have a snow plow, so I never change them. I only change the rears when I load it.
Unloaded I run 65 in the front and 35 in the back. It rides much better with the low pressure in the back and steers better with max air in the front. Also with the weight of the dmax and a replacement front bumper the back tires don't bulge as much as the front ones do.
Keep mine maxed all the time. I also rotate every three thousand miles. And used to get 70,000 miles out of them till i found this Place and started adding Go Fast Mods now I will be lucky to get 60,000.:ro) ):h
Mine are load range D as the E's weren't out in 285 when I bought them.
I figure as long as I'm not running with a heavy tow I'll be fine. If I have to haul something heavy I'll just put the stock tires/rims back on.
