that is wrong you can easily get a 265/75/r16 to fit, everybody does it , and i think thats as big as you can go cause im pretty shure 285s would rub

Ken,

I also own a 94 1500 4x4.  Mine has 285/75/r16s on it right now and doesnt rub, and I don't have any lift. I would definitely recommend 285s.

I have a 2001 K1500 Sierra Crew Cab. When I bought it new I immediately took it to my buddies shop where he put on 285 75 16s. 101,000 miles later I just put on another new set of the same size. I had been running Cooper ATRs. This time he put on Nokian Vativas. I always bought Coopers cause they are made in USA. Nokians are made in Finland and Russia EXCEPT the LT tires. We had to have the front torsion bars turned to get the clearance for the front but that is like 50 bucks. They scrape just a hair on the plastic fender liner when doing tight turns but who cares? They look way coolers and give you extra ground clearance!!!

actually the correct answer is a 265-75-16 with no modification or a 285-75-16 if you crank up the torsion bars on the front suspension and trim the black plastic air dam under the front bumper. No mods for the rear.

I have a 92 Z71 with 285s but i can fit 315s or up to 35s but 35s will scrub so if your truck sits lower then a z71 32s will mix it but if you have a z71 standard lift you can fit 34s and it shouldn't scrub

Flared fiber glass fenders up front rip everything out between the cab and radiator and tube it that's what I did I can fit 35s up front gotta do a little cutting for the rear or do a block or bigger springs

Need help with tire questions? I am trained by Michelin and have worked in a tire department for years, and served as the supervisor. I will answer only basic information or request. I can help you understand some tire questions on buying or just to understand tires. I may or may not answer questions about trouble or problems with tires, do to the fact that it is hard to say what is wrong with a tire without looking at the tire. Questions about tire sizes fitting your car are limited, up to 1998 at this time. All other tire questions, year does not matter.
