    i own a 2001 silverado 1500 and i was wondering if 285/70/17 will fit? the only changes that have been made to my ride that may affect it is i turned the torsion keys all the way up.

    Welcome to the GMTruckClub! The new larger tires may fit, but you may need to put different "keys" on the bars to re-index them. I'm afraid you are going to eat up the cv joints. Good luck!

    Welcome to the club. The 285's will fit with a leveling or cranking the torson bars (stiffen ride) and the stock size and offset wheel.
