Tires

Just curious if anyone has ran 235/60/16's on stock wheels and suspension on a 98-02? They look like they'd fit ok, but I'm concerned with rubbing up front. Think I'd need some kind of coil cup or bigger springs? I've been considering 2" cups in the rear and 1.5" in the front anyways, but if I don't need them to run these tires, I'm going to put it off for a while. Any input appreciated.

Re: Tires

I may be a day late and a dollar short, but the Edmunds site edmunds.com will show you all the aftermarket tire/wheel swaps that are possible for most vehicles, with warnings for which ones are tight fits with scrubbing problems on tight turns, bumps, etc. and which will work fine.

You may have to poke around a bit to find the link for tire and wheel info once you find your vehicle, but I have found said info there for a 97 GM.

Re: Tires

Nice to know.

Ever notice that there's so many high performance parts available for GM products?

Did you ever think that maybe they NEED them?

Re: Tires

Yeah, only now I can't find the link anymore. Had it a couple of days ago. Thought it was edmunds but now not sure. Will have to comb through my recent links and bookmarks.

It was late at night, my family has two machines, and I sometimes work under one of the other people's login, or under the admin login, so it could be stored in any one of eight places. Didn't need it at the time, because I was planning on staying with the 15x6.5 steel wheels I have on my 97 GM.

When and if I can find it again, I will post the direct link.

Sorry bout that, try to be more careful next time.

Re: Tires

I don't believe the following is the site I found before, which explicitly showed which combos could cause problems, but the one that follows was found by me in a post by Sgtgoto last October, although I think he misspelled it (unless I wrote it down wrong).

rimsntires.com

If anyone finds a better site, please add it.
