Just the way it is, I'd say 285s. Cranking the bars, maybe a 295. Cranking the bars and getting happy with the sawzall, 305/70s.

Re: stock tire upsize

Is it a new body style 99, or old body style? I'm positive 285's fit on the old one, but not sure on the new one....

It's the old body style, and I thought for sure I could step up at least one tire size. thanks

Re: stock tire upsize

Do you have the factory wheel flairs on it?? If so, then without trimming, 265 (I think) is as big as you can go. I have a set of junk 285s on stock wheels, my t-bars are slightly cranked, and they will rub turn to turn on flat surface. Start flexing it will rub more.

Re: stock tire upsize

there are no flares on the fenders. would it rub only on tight turns if at all?

Re: stock tire upsize

Just go down to your local tire shop and ask them to throw a 285 on a wheel like yours and them put it on your truck. See how it fits and if it will rub. Thats what I did when I put 33's on my stock Dodge not long before I got rid of it. The tire place wants to sell you 4 new tires. They will be happy to test fit a few for you.

I got 285/75/R16's on this '88 K1500 4x4 Silverado with the "side-step". Only rubs when I turn tight.
