Larger Tires for '07 Tahoe?

on my '99 Tahoe I was able to slip some BFG All-Terrain 285 tires on the 16"(?) wheels that filled out the wheel well nicely. Just picked up an '07 tahoe with 17" wheels and looking for options to do the same. I also have access to a set of the OEM 20" wheels that I could get larger tires for but not sure which one would look better and which size would have more tire sizes/capabilites available?

Any thoughts?

RE: Larger Tires for '07 Tahoe?

well you can't put tires that are much wider than the factory 20's because the 20's are alreayd to the fender and I dunno man I have one put the 305/50r20 of of my 05 avalanche on my tahoe and they stuck out about an inch and a half. I've looked for different sizes to put on my stock 17in wheel on my avi and couldn't really find anything, so good luck man

Hes right there isnt much room left in the fender. I have 305/45/22s and I get a slight rub. Im not sure how much larger you will be able to go.

Anyone? Someone must have upgraded the tires on the Tahoe by now, and upsized.

Thanks

I won't have mine (07 LTZ 4x4) for another week, but I've been checking on putting BFG A/T KO's on the factory 20's. The Bridgestone Dueler H/L Alenza (275/55SR20) that comes from the factory is listed on their site at a 33" diameter, so if you don't exceed that, you should be OK. The BFGs (LT285/55R20) are listed at 32.5", so I'm hoping they fit.

Jaytil,

Those Alenza tires are some good rubber, well rated, just not the right tire for a 4wd full size truck. (If you ever are thinking of taking it off-road) Did you make a deal to sell them new to the place your buying your BFG's? SHould be able to get some decent $$ for them brand new.

I just ordered new 20's with 285/50/20 nitto terra grapplers. I believe that is the biggest without any rubbing or well modifications. There is one in the forum that put 305's, but wonder if they rub.
