    Talking 33" on tomorrow!

    Hey guys, Just ordered my BFG 285 70R17's (32.7") and am getting them put on tomorrow afternoon. Just wondering if anyone had any troubles with putting this size tire on their truck (i have the levelling kit). was trimming of the air dam necessary? any feed back would be great! thanks guys!

    Im running an 2004 Sierra with a 4.8, 4x4

    Cheers

    Cool 33 on tomorrow

    If your truck is 4x4 with level kit than youll be fine with the 285s.

    My 03 has 33.3 inch tires, well at least they were that size when first put on, and I had no trimming at all to do and I also had the leveing kit.
