    about to get a 2.5" spacer lift for the front to level it out, any suggestions on tires and sizes. want to go as big as possible of course and as cheap as possible :) would like to get new rims but cant afford it right now so just got the stock 15x7s i think is the size. and if anybody has any tires they want to get rid of with good tread left let me know!!

    Probably your biggest size would be to run 33/12.50/15's. But that depends on the offset of your rims.
    I have 265/75/16's and I only have enough room for my hand to fit between the tire and a-arm, and my tires fit under the wheel well. But when i switch back to my 15 inch rims with only a 9.5 inch wide tire the tires stick out at least an inch from under the wheel well because of the negative offset.
    As for pricing on tires, if you're wanting to find some locally you're just going to have to look around. I was about to get BF Goodrich A/T's for a little over $800. But I just recently found a place that sells GT Radial MT's for the same price.

    I honestly couldn't tell you, because the 15 inch rims I have came with the truck so I don't know the exact amount of offset they have, but I'm sure some of the more experienced members might know the answer to your question.
    As for the 265/75's, they will fit without a doubt, because I had mine on without any lift and only had minor rubbing when fully turned

    ok cool i might go with the 265's just to play it safe or if i can find some 285's i could test out to see if they'll work

    Yeah, if you have any buddy's with an 6 lug chevy running large tires you could set them up on yours to see how they fit.

    I bought the truck with a 2.5 spacer lift. Hated the ride, got rid of it. But I ran the stock tires and 32's and both looked pretty good. Had rubbing with the 32's, I doubt you could get 33's without a 3 inch lift.
