    Default Just more then a little confused

    So I have searched n read n researched and still have the same question as when I started!!

    Will a 315/75R16 Nitto Mud Grappler fit on a stock 2001 silverado rim? I have a 2001 Chevrolet Silverado step side 2wd with a 4.5" Rough Country lift kit so I know they will fit on the truck with just a little modification to the inside of the fenders but....the only rims I have are the stock ones. I plan on moving up to a 16-10 DC-2 next summer but I can't afford it right now. I have found that most people say that they'll fit but there is question if people will mount them and how safe it is. Has anyone run this size with these rims? Or has anyone seen it done?

    Any clarification would be greatly appreciated thanks guys!!

    Not correctly, no. I wider wheel is needed. Otherwise your just going to wear the crap out of the center of the tread and only get a fraction of the life expectancy of the tires.
