I have searched and can't find the exact answer I am looking for. I am in need of new tires and I want to get a bit more aggressive tires. I have an 05 Silverado z71 with the stock 265/65/17s on it. I am putting on the readylift leveling kit tomorrow or Saturday. Would I be able to fit 285/70/17 tires on my truck without it rubbing? I have found a relatively good deal on some Cooper Discovery STT tires and thinking about buying them but I don't want to buy tires that wont fit...

yea they are really not that bad price wise compared to others and for what you get they are well worth it..... what Mickey Thompson were you looking at MTZ?

Ya i think they were about 218 a tire for the MTZ, I found the STT's for 183 a tire, with 100$ shipping though...:(

i just put new 285/70/17 discoverer stt's on my sierra with 3 inches of lift and it only rubs ever so slightly when at full turn in reverse. Im am adding 2 inch lift coil springs sometime next week so it shouldnt rub after that, but the chevy bumper is not as fat as the gmc so i think you'll be ok with just the leveling kit. By the way i love my discoverer stt's, excellent choice for a tire, quiet on the road too. I got them for 181 a piece at selecttire.com, i'll post pics as soon as i get the lift put on

I am beginning to have second thoughts about the STT's. I do not know how much off roading I will be getting into in the near future, and it doesnt really seem necessary to have mud tires if I don't use them for what they are designed for. I do want something I can get through rough terrain in sometimes, so I was thinking the ST or ST-C would be more up my alley. Has anyone had either of those, or all three STT, ST-C, or ST that could compare it for me? I still might go with the STT because I do have potential for some off roading, and when I work on my cabin up north it would always be nice to not worry too much about getting stuck...or just to have some fun maybe...anyway, any opinion would be nice!
