Re: sorry :)

here is my '94 Z71 with 285/75/16's BFG Mud Terrains on STOCK RIMS, with NO LIFT whatsoever! and absolutely no rubbing at all either.

Here is a pic of my 285 BFG MT's on my Yukon and I am running new 2001 stock rims that are 16"x7" which are the same size as the older rims. I have no rubbing at all and they fit like a dream and most pickups have a bit more height to them than the Yukons/Tahoe's do.

Re: sorry :)

I don't have any pictures, but there's like 3 GM IFS 4x4 trucks running around on base here with no lift and 285's on the stock rims. None of them have any rubbing or fender/bumper mods to make them fit. Just slap them on and go. There's also a truck running around with 305/70R16's (33x12.4R16's) and he has no problems either. RyanB had some 305's on a prior truck without any problems. He sold them to a buddy who ran them on his GM IFS truck without any problems either.

They will fit.

Yep, My '94 had 285's on stock wheels with no problem. I now have 285's on a 16x8 with less backspacing than stock, and had some rubbing before the lift.

The 285's will be fine on stock rims with no lift

Re: sorry :)

a buddy of mine got rid of the stock stuff not too long ago. he has a '97 z71 xcab. he now has ae 587 wheels (15x10!) and 32x11.5x15 mud kings. cranked the t-bars about an inch to level it out. there was no rubbing prior to that but he just wanted it to sit level.
it looks weird though. wide mud tires and it sits low. i don't know.
find yourself another tire shop.
