wondering what tire sizes you guys are getting away with without additional lift! I'm wanting to stuff 305 65s on my stock wheels.
195/70/18 or 295/70/18?I put Toyo 195/70's on mine. So, 34X11.5 roughly. I had to remove the mud flaps when I added Bushwacker fender flares. When I added the tires I had to remove the mudflap brackets and add 2" wheel offsets. When that was done I had no tire rub. Before the spacers It rubbed bad. Hell of a racket. I've read on the GM forums that you could put 195/70 without any rubbing. Anyone who says that is wrong.
Can you post some pics of your tire/wheel set up? I’m curious what the 2-inch spacers look like with that tire size. I’ve got the same size tires on factory wheels and will be adding 1.5-inch BORA wheel spacers whenever they come in the mail.Ahhh good catch! 295’s they are
Yeah thats a tall tire, thats why I was thinkin 305 65s...they are 33x12. Hopefully no rub and I like the wider tiresYup, I'll get some up. It may be tomorrow but I'm on it. I'm using factory wheels. There was no shaving needed either. Once the mudflap brackets were removed a self driller pushed the fender liner back enough. The 2" spacer made it look much better.
You nailed it on the comparison. I know it was done for mpg but man are they undersized for the size of the truck. They look like they belong on a pathfinder or tacoma!Yup, when I put the fender flares on I had to remove the mud flaps anyway. The real room was made by removing the mudflap bracket. I still hads to put on 2" spacers, which really made it look like it should have anyway. I'm happy with it now. The white truck with the large fender flares and original tires looked like a 250 lb. man with size 7 shoes!
