    Depending on what size tire is on it now you might be able to fit 285/75/16

    I have recently bought tires for my 1994 Chevy Silverado 5.7L 4x4 ext cab. Stock size was 265/75R16 and I jumped up to a 305/70R16 wth no rubbing.

    Discount Tire is my tire store, and they have some good stuff on their Web Site. Check this out:
