Hey guys! I’m new to the forum and new to owning an Avalanche. Just bought an 02 AV 1500 Z71 and LOVE IT!! Painted it matte black and it looks awesome.
My question is I’m looking to up my tire size and need to know if 33 12.5 17 would fit on my trucks stock 17 rims without doing a lift kit or any mods.
If it doesn’t, any advice on how to up my tire game without breaking the bank???

I have a similar question about wanting to replace my 17" rims with 18-20" take offs on my stock Z66 and am curious what profile will start to cause issues. Anyone?....

I put a 2 1/2 rough country leveling kit on my 2002 ava and put on some Bfg 285/70/17 on 2016 silverado rims and all fit fine with just a little trimming on the plastic inner liner on the fenders. NO rubbing.
