    what size tires can I fit under stock suspension?

    I Just bought a 2004 Silverado 2500HD I turned the torsion bar 3 1/2 turns on each side to lift the front end up. I was wondering if anyone knew how big I could go with tires. I don't want to rub anywhere. Right now the truck has 275/65/16. Any information would be helpful. Thanks!

    My buddy runs 285/65/16 with no rubbing. I think that is as tall as you can go on a stock set-up. I have Nitto Terra Grapplers stock size 16s on my 04 1500 Sierra and I am very happy with them.

    Ive got a 02 2500hd with the t-bars turned so the truck is level. Ive ran 285 75 16 for 100,000 miles. with new tires, I was about 1-1.5 inches from rubbing the plastic in front. I think the 2004 has a different front end than mine tho.

    I'm running same setup '02 2500HD w/ 285-75-16's. It is the largest you can run with torsion keys cranked up on stock suspension. 33/11.5/16 will rub.
