Don't do it... There is another thread open right now about it.

1. It's too wide for the rims, look at the thread about those failures.
2. Cranking T Bars isn't good for front end.
3. Mine rubbed when I had them and it seemed a fender mod was the solution to fix it. The fender mod is a good idea if you want bigger tires, just don't do it on stock rims.

No .... They will rub in the back of the fender. Fender mod will fix that issue though.

I'm looking a similar setup, thinking about some 295/70/17 toyo mt's. Looking at going the cognito setup though, if I could do it without then I would love it.

its my dads truck and he will NOT do the fender mod, so i guess his only other option will be to get smaller tires? he's pissed because the chevy dealer told him they will fit

I was in the same boat, where'd he buy his tires? Discount Tires let me return my tires and buy new tires.

he got the tires from the chevy dealer after they told him they would fit:cookoo[1]:
what sucks is that before these tires he went to costco and they gave him a bad set of michellens so after a long fight for a full refound for the tires and 2 allignments he went to the dealer and now they screwed him over.
lol its been a rediculous battle for a set of rubber

Dealer should let him return since they put them on the truck and they are the wrong size.
