Hi guys my stock wheel has the 255/70/16 tire on it, would a 265/70/16 tire fit?
Yup. I'm guessing someone put smaller tires on it. 265s are the oe recommended size but a lot people go to the 285/75 that should be the biggest you can go with out rubbing( at least without any lift) on a 4wd. If yours is 2wd you probably don't wanna go any bigger than the 265 without doing a little research first.
These should be a sticker inside your driver side door jam with the recommended size a tire pressure
clgoch187......The 255/70/16's was one of the Tire Sizes that Chevy/GM Installed on the Factory 16in" Alloy Wheels.
^this is accurate. You can actually fit as big as 265/75/16 on your truck if it's 4wd, maybe even on 2wd
285/75 requires a leveling kit at the very least without rubbing.
To help you, here's some Information"Specs"on both Tire Sizes, the 255/70's and the 265/70's....
255....Overall Diameter of....30.1in" and the Section Width is 10in"
265....Overall Diameter of.....30.6in"and the Section Width is 10.4in"
I had 185/75/16s on my or wheels with absolutely no rubbing on my 03 z71 before I leveled it and from what I can find the z71 suspension package had no change in ride height.
Z71's are taller than the regular 4x4. Although, I wouldn't expect a 185 to rub on a geo metro. Let alone a z71 lol
I have 285/70r16's on my 2001 HD2500, no rubbing issues...
those are almost the same height as a 265/75/16. They're just wider....
