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
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.
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!
I put a set of 275/70/17's on my 4x4 Crew Cab. They are the Goodyear Wrangler Silent Armor's. Unless you have a Z71 I don't think you can go any larger. These are a tight fit, but no rubbing. I also think backspacing come into play with fitiment. I put American Racing "Fuel" rims in a 17", and they have a 5" backspacing, which is pretty close to stock.
I have a 99 Z71 standard cab.I kept the stock wheels and replaced the tires with bfg a/t kos.The noise is hardly noticable and they ride great.I have never had a problem on or off the road. I have put the bfg a/t kos on all my trucks.If you notice chevy always puts them on the hummers.there must be something to that.
Bridgestone Dueler AT Revo. I can't say enough good things about this tire. Chunky tread to get through mud and snow yet siped for good wet traction too and zero road noise from these tires at any speed. Put a set of these on my dad's 04 2500HD GMC and even upsized to 265/75r16. He drives everywhere, carries heavy loads and plows snow with this truck and is thouroghly impressed with these tires. The truck even rides much better with the larger size.
