    Will 285/75/16s fit on a 4x2-2500 1999 Suburban? The 2500 really looks to be sitting pretty high-just stock...

    I had 33's on there before and only had problems on tight turning stuff. So they should fit fine....in the worst case get a 2 or 3 inch body lift under it and your good to go !!
    They are kind of easy to install and only run about 300 bucks for a good one.

    I also wanted to go with all black steel rims- like the cragar or American racing wheel steel. Does any company make a replacement steel wheel with the correct backspacing and bolt pattern for the 99 chevy suburban?

    I'm running 275/65/18 which converts to 32.1 on my 2000 4x4 tahoe with light rub on sharp turns. 285/75/16 converts to 32.8 so you will have some rubbing on turns most likely. I'm sure the 2500 sits a little higher than a 1500 though. Thanks to online conversion.com I can easily convert tire sizes! You can see pics on my tahoe on my page.

    No rubbing here. I do have to slow way down while turning into some parking lots. That little curbing causes the shock to compress just enough to hit the fender.
