Default Lift kits and tire sizes.

I have a black '03 SIlverado LS, 1500, ext cab, 2wd, short bed, with a 3 inch BODY lift on it. I was wondering how large of a tire i could go with no problems. I want to go 35 inch. If i cant do 35 i wanna do 33. Ill be putting on BFGoodrich All-Terrain Radial. Thanks.

Both should fit. The 33s definitely and the 35s probably.

I am not too sure about the 35's maybe try and ask oyu local tire shop. I would think you will be rubbing. The 33's tho will be perfect.

My chart says that 33's will fit but with the proper offset being critical. The 35's you will need a 6" lift and some minor fender and bumper trimming also the wheel offset being critical. The wheel offset thing can be taken care of at the tire shop. Currently you will not be able to get the 35's under it! So don't buy them unless you are planning on getting a newlift kit.

With your truck being a 2wd then it is going to be hard to fit 35s i would go with 33s but anything is possible with the right amont cutting.

LMC Truck. Best place ever for stock Chevy parts. You can find anything! I suggest you go on thier website and order a free catalog because sometimes the website is a little hard to use because it is set up like a catalog, but if it works for you then go for it. I get stuff from them a lot.

Too bad LMC doesn't have a catalog for '08s yet.

Well I would hope you dont need anything yet. lol It is brand new. Plus if something breaks you can just take it to the dealer for free.
