99 + 96 Burbs, Late model 17 + 20" OE rims, Non-OE tire sizes...
OK, I have been around vehicle enthusiast forums for 15+ years...
And generally hate "what tire size fits?" threads.
But I am new to Suburbans... And this could fit in "Lift, Leveling & Offroad" or in "Wheels & Tires" or here...
I just picked up a 99 K1500 LT Burb with the factory fender flares.
I scored a set of 08 Silverado 17's and have them stashed in the garage.
Found a good deal on some lightly used 285/75/17 Firestone Destination MT's
Don't mind cranking the t-bars some if I will only need a little bit to fit comfortably.
Don't know if I will need anything in the rear.
Want to EVENTUALLY do F150 keys and an AAL (not a lift block).
What do you guys think?
Anyone have a pic of a similar setup?
Now, I'll throw this in here too...
Buying the wife a mint, original owner, 96 K1500 LS Burb.
Found a good deal on some late model (not sure of year) OE 20's.
And got a local tire shop to price match PepBoys on Cooper Zeon's in the 285/50/20 flavor.
Want to keep close to or better than stock ride ("better" does not mean "softer").
Whaddayathink? Crank the t-bars a bit? Or go ahead and do F150 keys? Anything for the rear?
Again, anyone running similar setup? Thoughts? Pics?
Pics of the rigs in their current / stock state to come later.

Not the exact answer I believe you were seeking, but I did get some newer model rims/tires on Craigslist for cheaper than a set of replacement tires by themselves. Factory ride height as well.

Those the OE 2008+ 18" Z71 rims?
Love the look of them on the square OBS trucks.
My rigs and plans have changed slightly...
Will update this thread when I have some more time...

I put 2005 17" oem steel wheels on my 1999 k1500 and went with 255/70/17's on them. I wanted to go a little taller, but not wider... but, I was worried about rubbing.I like you.

They get +/- $900 for OE 17 & 18" alloy wheels with OE tires.
I've got the '08 17" wheels. Just gotta get some tires.
The $ will depend on whether or not the guy that is looking at the 99 Burb I have for sale wants the stock 16"/Michelin LTX combo or the 17"/Bridgestone Dueler combo...
