I have a 1998 model Tahoe 4WD running Cooper 285/75-16's AT3's.
No rubbing and it looks good. I am running aftermarket rims with a little bit of offset, but zero lift from stock. That could be why I don't rub on the inner finder wells.

There should be a tag in the door that will read the stock tire size. I used desertrat.com for my tire conversion charts.

I am running stock wheels also. May be part of my problem.

I have 32's on my bone stock 99 2wd hoe.
I could put 33's on it and still not rub.
Must be more parts in the way with 4wd ?

Breeze, you can find new/near new takeoff's of stock alloy rims with new/nearly new tires already mounted and balanced at less cost than buying new tires alone.
Just check out CL like these:

You have that a little backwards. Bigger tires make your speedometer read slower than you are really going. Bigger tires mean you are traveling a longer distance per revolution of the tire.

Your right. My mind was thinking correct but my hands typed wrong. My speedo reads fast; my actual speed is slower then the speedo.
