    Default Tire size

    Hey Guys,
    I'm a new Suburban( used ) owner, black '97 3/4 ton, 4x4, 454, 3.73 gears with a 2" body lift. The guy I bought it from put the stock tires & wheels ( 8 lug/16 inch ) back on it. I was wondering what size tires would you guys recommend. The stock ones look tiny. I have an old '75 Blazer with new 33/11.5/15 on it. I thought about getting 8 lug/15 inch wheels, somebody said they will not work. Thanx ! 97 in 10EC

    33's would look good. I am not sure on the rim size. I know that at least as of 2000 15's would not work as the caliper was in the way (16 was minimum).
