Asked by Sep 13, 2014 at 11:18 AM about the 2007 Chevrolet Suburban LT1 1500 4WD

Question type: General

I own a 2007 Chevy suburban and need new tires. I see all different answers when I look on these forums. so I figured ill ask the question. can I fit 285/70 R17 tires under my suburban with changing anything? or have the tires rub?

According to it comes with P265/70R17 tires stock, so you are talking about adding 20mm width, less than 3/4 inch, and just a little bit of height. Remember the 70 is the aspect ratio, the % of width, 70% width being the height of sidewall, so even though the 70 is the same it will be taller

I was guessing..actually a little over 3/4 inch...0.78

so I shouldn't have any problem with the tires rubbing? what is the clearance with the wheels turned to the right or the left?


That I don't know..never owned a Suburban. But maybe somebody that has will know.


Make sure they fit on your 7.5 inch wheels, or you will have to spend a fortune on new rims or try to find used steel rims that will accept the wider tire
