Wheel and Tire Sizes

Postby 1992sierra [OP] » Mar 07 2011, 1:58am

so i have couple questions... i have a 1992 GMC sierra. as of now it is stock and has 245/70/R16s on it. but as of this coming weekend it will be lifted 2 inches. anyone guess on the size of tires i should be able to fit with the lift?

and another thing i need new rims... mine are 6 lug 5.5" wondering if anyone knows the size of new GMC truck rims. i see quite a few sets for sale from 2009,2010,2011 trucks and want to see if theyd fit mine?
thanks to anyone who can help me out

You could most likely fit 285's with minor rubbing/trimming if any. Not sure if the NBS wheels will fit, prob so?

NBS wheels should bolt up without any issues. GM very rarely changes the bolt pattern size. I believe they have been using the same bolt pattern since the late '80s when they did the revolutionary body changes and switched from a live axle front end to IFS.

You can fit 305s but they'll rub for sure. I know from experience :)

Trim the hell outta everything and make it work!
