285/50R22 Tire Upgrade with Stock Suspension

Recommended Posts


I am new to the forum and I wanted to see if I can get away with upsizing the tires on my 2019 Silverado to 285/50R22 with the stock suspension? I know the tires would be about .5" wider and 1.2" taller than the stock 275/50R22.


Any advise would greatly be appreciated.

Yes. The 285/50R22 will fit the Non-TB/AT4 trucks with stock suspension. The 285/55R22 seem to become a problem for stock suspension. You can also fit 305/45R22 on stock suspension trucks. Just to give you some more options.

I have a 2021 Chevy Silverado RST Duramax with stock 275/50/22.


i purchased 285/50/22 tires as most people say they will fit.  Can anyone confirm if this will work on stock suspension?  My concern is that I only have 1/2” of space with control arm on the stock tires.  Any feed baby would be appreciated.

I have a trail boss (2” lift), and removed the rear blocks. This is a 305/55R20 on a 20x12 rim; -44 offset. They rubbed until I removed the mud flaps and tied back the inner fender liners. 

the only thing done to the suspension was removal of rear blocks to level it.
