    Default 35x12.5 17's

    I just ran across a set of 35's super swampers that are almost new for $250. my question is can I get them on my stock 17's. Also how much lift would I need so they dont rub. oh by the way the truck is a 2005 Z71 with stock suspension. Thanks

    No, 35-12.50-17's won fit properly on your stock wheels. You would need a 17 inch wheel that is atleast 9 or 10 inches wide. If you tried puttn those tires on your narrow stock wheels they would balloon out extremely bad. And to fit 35's on your truck you would need about a 3 inch lift. A body lift is a cheaper route to take if you cant afford a suspension lift.

    Cool 35x12.5 17's

    I have a 05 Z-71 with 35s and have a 6" lift and the tires rub just a little at full turn. Those tires your looking at really need a 10" wide rim. They just will not work with your truck and wheels.
