Asked by Jun 03, 2010 at 11:55 PM about the 2003 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Ext Cab Short Bed 2WD

Question type: Car Customization

I'm putting 2 inch coil spring spacers in the front and a 1.5 inch block in the back.
I'm wondering if I can fit the 285's with the extra 2 inches or can I still only fit the
265's?

Oh yes, you most definitely could. My buddy has exact same deal you do same car and everything, and if you really wanted to do 305s down the road, I would recommend new rims(that give it a wider stance) or wheel spacers so you dont rub on the inside. Side note I have a grand cherokee with 225/75R16 stock and now a 265/75R16 with the 2in coil spacers and it fine. PS Im from Chicago, Go Blackhawks!

How big of wheel spacers would you recommend? I wouldn't want the tires to run outside of the wheel wells.

with your 285s it will be fine its only an inch wider or so, but to be on the safe side 1.25, or 25mm(whatever size they come in for the silverado) should do the trick for both 285 and 305s
