    Default Will a 265mm Tire it on stock rim?

    Hi guys my stock wheel has the 255/70/16 tire on it, would a 265/70/16 tire fit?

    Yup. I'm guessing someone put smaller tires on it. 265s are the oe recommended size but a lot people go to the 285/75 that should be the biggest you can go with out rubbing( at least without any lift) on a 4wd. If yours is 2wd you probably don't wanna go any bigger than the 265 without doing a little research first.

    These should be a sticker inside your driver side door jam with the recommended size a tire pressure

    ^this is accurate. You can actually fit as big as 265/75/16 on your truck if it's 4wd, maybe even on 2wd

    285/75 requires a leveling kit at the very least without rubbing.

    To help you, here's some Information"Specs"on both Tire Sizes, the 255/70's and the 265/70's....

    I had 185/75/16s on my or wheels with absolutely no rubbing on my 03 z71 before I leveled it and from what I can find the z71 suspension package had no change in ride height.

    Z71's are taller than the regular 4x4. Although, I wouldn't expect a 185 to rub on a geo metro. Let alone a z71 lol

    those are almost the same height as a 265/75/16. They're just wider....
