will they fit on my stock 05 Z71, or do i need a lift? still new to the world of lifts and tires
I would think that you might med a lift. Check wit 4wheelparts.com or call the call center.
what about just a body lift? cash is an issue
I don't think body lift would be enough, as others said in my thread about 2002, in 2003 the fenders changed, so they're not as rounded.
I bet you could squeeze em in there with a 3" body lift. you will have to cut plastic in the front tho for sure. also they will rub more on the stock rims so i recommend ones with a 4" or so backspace to stick the tires out a little more
And I wouldnt go with pro comps. Not so good
I have a 2005 1500 Z-71 with the Pro Comp All Terrains, they are size 35"x12.50"x17" tires. I have a 6" suspension lift, and you can barely put your hand in front of the front tire before you hit the front bumper. I don't have any rubbing, and nothing is trimmed on the truck. The fornt bumper was swapped out for a shorter aftermarket bumper, but other than that it is all stock. I think they are good highway tires, but I have never had them off road so I couldn't tell you that part.:great:
definitely need to lift it. The sidewalls on those tires are garbage, but that might not matter a whole lot depending on what kind of wheeling you do (if at all).
leveled-4" lift------33" tires
5-7" lift-------------35" tires
7(maybe)-9" lift---37" tires
I think those are about right. if you want to fit 35's you need at least 5" of lift, but bumper trimming will be requred. I'm going to go with a 2" lift (leveling keys and AAL's) and i'm going to put some 33's on it.
