I had installed 275/70R16 on my truck and experienced feathering on the front tires as they were a bit wide for the stock rims.
Once you decide on the size you want, you can use this to check out the various brands that are available for that size here and you can also compare prices.
For myself, I'm partial to the Michelin LTX M/S. A bit pricey but great tires. Guess it depends on what you're looking for in a tire. The site also has recommended brands based on customer reviews.
Nice truck. Looks like you have invested a lot of time and money into it. Aren't those Apache tires made by General? You wouldn't believe the problems I've had with Generals...course that's another story.
Good luck with your search.
It there is a less aggressive tire then the 265R17 all season radial tire which is standard on the GMC 2007 Sierra SLT model. The vibration from the tire is to much for my wife.
The airbags are designed to support the load in the truck and would be responsible for your "firm no bounce" shock test. At 100k miles you should definitely consider changing all four shocks.
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.
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.
that helps out alot thanks!!
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.
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 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.
We check the brakes and resurface the rotors, the pads are in very good condition and has new tires.
Can any one help. Thank you.
I want the best MPG, how tall should the tires be? 2005 1500 5.3 4.10 ratio
Can someone tell me which code it is in the glove box the will tell me if this has posi trac?
The stock rims should fit fine with the 265/70R16 tires. Unless there was an aftermarket brake kit added.
If anyone has an answer to this I sure would like to know because it is a long day on a trip fighting the wheel BUT IT SURE LOOKS GOOD :}
Thanks Ty Grant
