    Anyone know if I have to lift or level my **** in order to make these fit? I've got a 00 Z71 5.3 stock. Tires are 265/70R17

    $150 is cheap...the rims look great.....sweet score. Is the tire size you are mentioning the new tires or stock tires? If 265s are new ones, I think you should be fine.

    I'm just wondering how big I can go before I run into rubbing issues. I don't want to have to lift or level the truck.

    From my experience, I have had up to 285/17/70s on both my 1997 and 2008 without a leveling or lift kit. I do not think there will be one for sure answer, as I have heard that shocks, springs, and other things will make individual trucks vary, but I think you would be okay with 285s as well. When I bought my last set of tires though, I did ask the tire shop to try out a couple of different sizes to check for rubbing and to see what they looked like on my vehicle....and they were happy to work with me, especially since tires are a pretty big expense. I think most tire retailers wouldn't mind working with you to make sure you are happy with your purchase.

    Forgot to add rim backspacing and/or offset also play a role.

    Yeah. I'm going to put Toyo AT's 265/70R17. Should fit nicely without any rubbing issues.

    Holy smokes! She only wanted $100 for these. But, I was fine with $150. The tires are still decent also. I can probably get another 5-10k on them.

    She also tossed in some step rails. But, I believe they are for a 2009 Silverado.
