Hey Guys, new to the forum. I just bought a 1999 Silverado 2500 and I would like to put some beefier tires on it. I would really like to run 285/75/16's but I keep hearing conflicting suggestions. I am including a pic of my truck just to show what I'm working with.

My wife gets great deals on Dick Cepek and Maxxis tires through where she works, so I was looking at the DC mud country's or the Maxxis Bighorns...

I read a couple places that you just cant put 285's on but then I talk to my buddy who owns a garage and he says they've put 285's on a TON of silverado's without lifts and he's only had a rubbing issue once...

Thanx for any help guys!



I would LOVE some 35's but I got a bad feeling I'd need to do too much to fit them....
