Tires on an 07: How big can I go without a lift?

    The factory 245/70R17's are ok for what they are, but they aren't proportionate to the wheel gap.

    Now there's an '05 outside without a lift, and he's sporting 265/75 tires, and they look absolutely mean. Are there any dimension differences between the 2 body styles that wold restrict me from going that big? Or can I go bigger?

    Truck in question is an 07 Sierra RC/LB

    I've read the stickies, but they do not help with the size tire I'm looking for. I'm running on the factory rims, and i don't know their width.

    Someone point me in the right direction?

    you should be able to go up to a 285/70R17. Do a search, this question gets asked a lot :great:

    285s aren't that wide man. what style cab do you have? single, ext, or 4 door? i have no lift on mine and no trimming and i have 33.5" with no scrubbing. ( i have an 04 4x4). but you should be able to fit 285s with no problem, a friend of mine has that size on his 07 and they look pretty good and cause no problems

    Its only about a 33" tall by 11.3" wide tire. your stock ones are about a 31/10.

    What about for 18's?? I have an 07 2WD single cab?? I've tried all the stickies as well, but I'm tire retarded. Just wondering what's the biggest I can go without problems as well. :no:
