    How big a tire for '99 suburban?

    How big a tire can you fit without doing any modifications to the truck? ( '99 Suburban, 1500 series, 4x4, factory rims)

    I put 285/75R16 on my 1997 Sub, no rubbing at all. I did move up to an 8" rim though, factory was 7".

    I have 265-16's on mine with stock rims. I've never had any problems what so ever with soft sand. Can't say much about mud, I try to stay away from that stuff.

    norcal I didn't install mine. I paid the place to do it. These are the cut out flares and I wasn't gonna mess with cuting the sheet metal myself. They do make some that don't need to be cut out and a friend did his own and said it was easy.

    I think a 285/75 is the biggest you can put on a stock Sub without rubbing.

    you can always crank the torsion bars a bit, or use F150 torsion keys to lift an inch or 3 and try to fit a 32" tire under there.

    I didn't do the work to be honest. They are the cut out version so I had the shop do it.
