Can anyone tell me where I can find out what the biggest tyres that I can fit to a 98 suburban are. I would like to be able to do it without raising the suspension and also without the tyres scrubbing when I turn. Any assistance would be appreciated. I have looked through the yank sites that relate to these vehicles and to be quite honest I can't understand how their forums keep going, the majority of their posts have no replies and the information exchanged is limited to cupholders and how many they can fit in their garages (not really but do you get my drift). I look forward to any help that is forthcoming.

According to Four wheeler the biggest you can fit without suspension lift is 31's.

Bummer, I was hoping that I might be able to get a set of 33's on as there is still quite a bit of room under the guards. Did you article say anything about width? I am currently running 31 at 245 width. Thanks for your response by the way.

31 by 10.5. If you want 33's article states that you will need a 4 inch suspension lift. You can fit 38.5x15's with a 6 inch suspension lift and a 3 inch body lift.:) Article in the Four Wheeler dec 96.

sort of illegal in most states but some spacers will help out. 12r went on easily and they looked good to. before you get too excited though they didn't do anything for the handling/traction that the oe couldn't do. but if it's looks you're after that's the way to go.

Maverick, can you please explain what you meant by the spacers and also the comment about traction and handling compared to the oe? What I am trying to achieve is the best performance possible offroad by putting tyres on which are within the realms of being practical. Looks are not high on the list but value for money is if you get my drift. I appreciate your input and look forward to hearing from you. Also can you give me some insight as to where you guys are getting this information.

Regards John

Goodsy thanks for your info, was there anything else of interest in that article? I don't think I will be heading down the road of the 38's just yet. I would like to be sure that my driveline was going to last me before I started fiddling with stuff like that. I have heard that suspension lifts on this type of vehicle are very expensive and the CV's don't take to it very well either. Thanks again for your response.

48in tractor tires if you want....

Skys the limit

Just use an angle grinder.

NO Truckster I do not want to get out the angle grinder. I've quite enjoyed using the angle grinder on a couple of my vehicles but this one is definitly out of the question.

Now that we have that out of the road the this is currently running LT245/75 R 16' s on it BF Goodrich. I don't know what that is in the other scale but I was sort of hoping that I might squeeze a set of 33" under there somewhere. I know this is probably not possible but any help you can give would be appreciated.
