Largest Tire Size

Tires look wimpy

Largest Tire Size

Postby Dragon [OP] » Sep 22 2011, 4:29pm

OK, I know that there have been more than a few posts on here about tire sizes but most I can find is the tallest and almost everyone has a 1500. I have a 2006 Silverado 2500HD and I am wondering what the absolute max tire size (height and width) I can put on it without rubbing or sticking out, and only getting the leveling done. Right now it is not leveled but I do plan on getting that done at some point right now though I just seem to have an outrageous amount of space inside my wheel wells and that is what is keeping me from doing the leveling kit don't want the front to look as empty as the back so I am thinking both at the same time, also the tires I have right now are straight stock and they look really thin

Yeah I'm liking the way that looks, a lot fuller underneath there. I heard that cranking the keys changes your ride a bunch so I didn't want to mess with that

beautiful a ton less wimpy looking than mine, did you have to get a wider rim for them or do they should they fit fine on a stock size rim?
