I have 30's on my 88' C1500 <stock height>, and any bigger would be getting
too close to the fender for my comfort. 31's <might> fit, but 32's would be
rubbing for sure. I was running 255/60/15's on her (10.2" wide) for awhile
and wouldn't want to go any wider. Although there was more than enough room
to go wider, they looked great, any more would have looked dumb as hell.
So, you're looking for a tire around 30" diameter and 10-11" wide.
265/70/16 should be perfect (30.6" diameter/10.7" wide). Better have a nice
low rear-end gear or you'll never get moving with those guys..............
I have 265/75-16s on it now (I think the stock rim is 16X7 or 7.5) and I
just bought some 16x8s.....
The 265s have "plenty" of room. I may try a 31" or so... just wondering how
wide a tire they offer, I'm probably going with a set of BFGs all terrain or
something like that.
Yes, but we don't offer warranties :-)
I have a 1990 GMC FS jimmy that has 31xwhatevers on it, look small but don't
I also have a 1985 K5 Blazer that has tires that MEASURE 31" tall, but I
don't know what the size of the tire is.
Personally too lazy to go look. Neither tire is close to rubbing anything,
but these are both 4x4 vehicles, which are a little higher (at least up
front) from the factory.
265's are the metric version of a 32"x10.5" tire, going to a 31
would result in a shorter tire. if you want to go wider, try a
32X11.5. a 285-75/16 is slightly taller than a 33X12.5 and almost
exatly the same width.
I have a 90 model with 285-75-16's on the stock wheels, (Z71, btw) the front
end isn't cranked up, and i have no scrubbing on mine. i suppose it may
differ according to tires and wheels, but if it's 4x4 you should be able to
fit the same as mine without a problem.
