    Do you have stock tires and wheels on your silverado? Or are you rolling with something different?

    Maybe you just want to know about the PSI for your tires.

    Post it in this area.

    I have a 2002 Silverado with 265/75 16 what is the next size up I can go without making any mods. Also does the on board computor need to be tweaked if I can go bigger.

    i have a 2000 silverado with these same size tires LT 265/75/16 they are the cheap yet effective uniroyal liberators (aka wal -mart specials) but i find they have a good ride and great tire wear this is the third truck i have put them on and they wear after about 75000 miles even though they are 40000 mile tires not the best off road even though they are supposedly all terrain tires

    It should handle just fine with those tires. GM has always provided a new stable front-end system system, much moreso than Ford ever did.

    Small upgrade

    I have a 99 silverado Z71 and upgraded to a 285 series tire (equivalent of a 33"). They are BF Goodrich All Terrain TA's. I have put about 90,000 miles on them and expect them to last until the end of this summer. They are a little loud, but that's just an excuse to keep my music loud. The ride is good, and the speedometer seems to be just as accurate as with the stock tires. Any thing bigger than 285's will need some sort of suspension adjustment.

    Wow, 90,000 miles on them? That's incredible. What type of BFGs are they?

    All Terrain TA KO's 285 75 16's. They have a very aggresive tread, I would say it was over a inch deep when new. I drive 50,000 miles a year for work, and this May they will be 2 years old. I have every intention of putting the exact same tires back on, when I need new ones! The only drawback was the road noise. But its a truck, if I wanted a quiet vehicle I would have bought a malibu!

    That's a good looking tire. I need to get some new rubber for my 2002 Trailblazer, I might give those a look to price them out.

    ... and it came stock with BFGs too, so it's keeping it with the same tire mfg.
