bigest tires with leveling kit

Postby drob22 [OP] » Mar 17 2011, 8:08pm

I have a 2005 silverado 2wd. I put a daystar 2.5 leveling kit on the truck. What is the biggest tire size I can run. I have 265/70-17 right now can I go to a 285/70-17.

I would say the 285 is about the right size to go with. Anything bigger and you may potentially face rubbing issues.
