    I am running 315 75 16 on the z71 16x7 rim on my 2004 z71 with torsion keys, with minimual rubbing
    Never thought 35's would fit w/ only a leveling kit. Haha

    wouldn't recommend going over a 295/75/16. Anything bigger and you will get rubbing. Now a cheap level lift kit will solve that and you can get up to 315's or so. BFG T/A KO's come in 295/75/16 for about 215 each. Amazing tire. 237/ea if you wanna bump up to 305's. I'm a fan but thats because they're local. Have fun.
    If you have spent more on your pickup than on your education, then you might be a redneck.
