Biggest Tire Size On 3'' Body Lift

Recommended Posts

I have an 03 Z71. I want to put a 3 inch body lift on my truck. What is the biggest tire size that will fit with this lift with a 16 inch wheel with a slight offset? Does anyone have any pics?

3" Suspenion Lift or Body Lift

- 305/70R16 and under on Stock Wheels or 16x8; 16x10 (possible torsion bar crank and light trimming)

- 315/75R16 on Stock Wheels or 16x8 (torsion bar crank and heavy trimming, or cutout flares); 16x10 not recommended

So with a 3in body lift you can fit 16x8 set of wheels, and 315/75/16 tires or (34.6) But in this case I would have to do some heavy trimming. just making sure we are on the same page.

 

Wish somone had a pic

You'd definitely have to either crank the hell out of the torsion bars, or do a lot of trimming to fit the 315s. If I were you, I'd either go with a 305 or a 33x12.5, you should have no problem fitting either size.

If you are going to wheel, I would just stick to 33s. I have gone and tried fitting the biggest tires on my truck, not worth the head ache.

why do people try to fit the biggest tire possible in there truck?

 

i tried to fit 37's on my old truck and they fit, but rubbed... i would NEVER drive a truck with tires rubbing. it got old really quick..

 

just put 285's / 295's on.... you will have alot less headachs...

I have 305/70/16s on my 2000 Sierra 2500 4x4 and have a 3" lift. The tires rub on the torsion bar in tight turns. So I would not recommend anything larger than 295/70/16 unless you are going to restrict you turning on do some more modifacations.
