    Default lift/ tire questions

    if anyone has looked at my profile so far i have a 99 burban and iwas just wondering what size tires can i fit under it with it sitting stock? would 31"-33" fit fine?? if not would it be wise to get like a 3" lift for it or a leveling kit for it and run 33s then?
    this is my first burb im really used to trucks so i dont think that there is much difference between the two but im not sure.

    I had 1990 Silverado, i added a 3 inch body lift so i could fit 33x12.50 on it. I was also running a wide wheel as well.

    I had an uncle back in the day that had a new 94 pickup. He ran 31x10.5s with no issues. I think those were the biggest he could run on the stock rim. I've got 265/75s on my 98 'burban. If I remember right, they measured at about a 30 in tall tire. Could have gone a little bigger if I wanted. I've got pics on my profile if you want to take a look. I'll go out and measure them, if I can find the tape.
