    Default Cooper Discoverer STT's

    I was wandering if 295/70-17 cooper discoverer stt's would fit on my 2005 chevy silverado 4x4 with a leveling kit without any problems..

    Welcome to the site! From what I've seen on here, you might have some rubbing with the 295's w/o leveling the front end. You can get some lift with the torsion bars, but that also stiffens the ride. I have not done this on mine, but I'm sure you'll get some more info' pretty quick. Good luck!

    Thank, i was either thinking the 295's or 285's, if i couldnt fit the 295's then i was going to go with the 285's...

    Welcome to the GMTC! To answer your question, a lot depends on your rim choice and the offset of said rim, I have a 305/50/20 on an 8.5 inch rim with a 31mm offset and they don't rub. This tire is approx 32.1" in diameter while the 295/70/17 you describe is 33.2" tall. On my truck I could run a 305/55/20 with no problems on the same rim ( 33.4" tall) but they are just too expensive for me at this time, so to answer your question , yes they will fit providing you use rims with the correct offset. Almost forgot, I have a 2.5" Pro Comp leveling kit on my truck. Hope this helps.

    Never seen a 295 wide tire on a factory rim, tread width is 11 3/4" and '05 stock rims are 7 1/2" wide, that's a 4 1/4 difference, hmmm......might look a little funny, 285 or 275 might be a better choice, 285/75/17 is 33.8" tall and would fit the rim better. With the leveling kit and stock rims they should fit o.k.

    Cool tire and leveling kit

    The 295s are to wide for the stock rims and for a leveling kit only. You need 4inches of lift to clear the 295s on a K1500. I would go with the 285s with level kit.

    Not entirely accurate, I have 305's with a 2.5 leveling kit.
