Chevy Silverado and GMC Sierra Tires and Wheels



  • Where ever you plan to have these tires installed will tell you just how big you can go. I have a 1500 4x4 series truck with 285 75 16 tires. ( an upgrade in size but with the same 16 inch rim) It is the biggest I can go without scraping the tires up front when turning. They are definately much bigger. Do you want raised white letters too on the tire? Also ask about road noise level. If you buy an aggressive tire for that tough look, sometimes they might hum down the road. Make sure you go to a great tire place. (Chain or dept. store tire places don't have the info you want or the choices for a bigger looking agressive tire). :D
  • I have a 2006 4x4 2500 crew cab silverado and I upgraded to the tallest tires I could go without a lift kit
    the 16 x 285 BF GOODRICH all terrane. These are a good tire and look good on the truck with very little road noise. It will come close to rubbing the front bumber skirt but that can be trimmed back a little by your paint and body shop if needed. you can also have the torsion bars raised just a little. this will level the truck out as well.
    I would not recommend raising over 1 and 1/2 inch or you will give up some of the ride quality.
    Any alignment shop can raise these for you and re-alligh the front end.
    Hope this helps you out.
  • hey i've got a 03 sierra 1500 and my sticker on the drivers door for proper tire inflation pressures is ripped off. i was wondering if anyone had the same truck could possibly give me the pressures or a photo of the sticker that would be great!

    i live in canada whether that makes a difference or not?

    I doubt it makes any difference that you have a Canadian model - I don't think they're substantially different from the US versions.

    The answer to your question can be founbd in a book called "Tire Guides". But we need more detail:

    OK we got a 2003 GMS Sierra Pickup 1500

    C or K? (4X2 or 4X4?)

    Looking further at the list I see that all 4X2's are 35 psi and these vehicles originally had P235/75R16's or P255/70R16's.

    4X4's are also 35 psi, but the original tire size was either P245/75R16 or P265/75R16


    There are 2 versions that originally came with LT245/75R16's inflated to 50 psi front / 80 psi rear. These versions are labeled as "C1500 4X2 Crew Cab H.D." or the same in a 4X4.

    Hope this helps.
  • i have a 4x4 with P265/75R16s and its not a H.D.

    that helps out alot thanks!!
  • I currently have a set of AR wheels (20x8.5) with 285/55/20 Eagle LS tires on my 06 Z71. I like the look of the 20's, but I want a more aggressive looking stance beyond the fender flares. I would like to get a set of 20x10 Motto wheels, but am not sure if any modifications have to be done (I'd rather not shave or lift). Does anyone know if there will be enough turning clearance for the front? I don't want it to hit the upper arms or ball joints. Appreciate the feedback.

    I am planning to get taller wheels to undo some of the effects of the 4.10 axle ratio. Does anyone know the proper offset/backspace for 17x8 rims to be used on 2500HD?

    I am guessing that 285/70-17 is probably the biggest tire size. Any info will be most appreciated as the tire places are giving me conflicting info.
  • Hello, I just bought a new body style 2500 hd 4x4. I want to put larger tires and wheels on it now and I need to know if 32.5 x 10.5 x 17 will fit under it without a lift. Thanks

    Anyone with a dual rear wheel changed to 19.5" wheels and tires? I am concerned about the dual spacing, as I will be towing with my 2002 Chevrolet Crew Cab the majority of the time.

    I tried 235/85R16 tires to try to improve the ride without any real benefit. Now I would prefer a safety margin while towing at near maximum capacities both GVW and GCVW.

    I know these are 8 lug 6.5" bolt center, hub piloted wheels. Is there any other vehicle out there that uses this wheel center with 19.5" tires?

    I dont think i would go any larger or your spacing might get to small...or you could go with one single large wheel in the back and that would probably help your ride and you would not have to worry about the spacing. It makes your truck look like it has slicks.
  • I have a 2007 K2500 Crew Cab, I have just added after market tires and wheels. I can not get the tire pressure sensor to reset. The dealership told me the tires have to be within 6 lbs of each other, front and rear, and they are (50 lbs in the front and 45 in the rear). I have followed the reset instructions in the manual and the truck does what it supposed to do, but the warning just keeps coming back.

    I have the optional factory Z71 wheels (18") and just rotated them recently. I followed the instructions in the owners manual (they are a bit confusing) and my pressure sensor wouldn't reset - it still thinks they haven't been rotated. I don't get any kind of warning, it just "sees" the rear wheels on the front and vice versa. I can tell because of the difference in the pressure in the front & rear tires. I'm not sure if I'm doing the reset right, or whether there's a problem. Please post if you get it resolved, & I'll do the same.

  • Hello everyone, I am new to these forums and a new truck owner (well Ive had it for about a month. I wanted to know how big of tires I could get into my Chevy 07 Silverado 1500 LT Ext Cab without a lift kit. I want some nice mean lookin tires because the stock ones just dont cut it. I would like some off roady type tires if possible even though I do not have a 4x4 (I kinda feel like a poser because of this). I am not experienced in the truck field seeing as I am only 16 years old but the internet is my tool and can help me with a lot of problems and or questions. So if anyone has any advice on my current situation please dont hesitate to reply, thank you very much!
  • I was wondering if switching from the stock 17" wheels to a earlier model (2004) 16" wheel would clear the disc/drums on my 2007 Silverado 1500 Classic?
  • I've learned that the only way to know whether wheels will fit is to actually try them. And also be aware of possible differences in offset, not just whether the diameter is OK and the wheels clear the brake calipers. Try before you buy.

  • I just bought a used truck of a local website, not that it matters, but anyways its a 2003 GMC Sierra and has 50,000. The truck needs some new tires and have been looking around, but not sure what to get. I live in Chicago, so we do get some snow, but not a lot. I don't go off roading and don't really drive on the highways that much. Basically it is local roads. I am looking for a good tire for these conditions. I was thinking about Goodyear wrangler rt/s, but not sure. Anyone have any ideas of what a good tire would be. I did find this website that shows some ratings, but any help would be great. 2FS

    Check the survey results on these tires, then check the price. I just bought a set and the survey don't lie.
