I have a 98 z-71, and it is factory height... I just bought this truck, and I will be needing to put some tires on it soon. I want a tire that will look good, and perfrom well. I was thinking 33's but I am worrying about it rubbing, and being to much for the stock height... If any one could give me some suggestions in sizes, and actual tires they would recommend it would be great... Thanks in advance

I will be moving back to Louisiana when I am done with this deployment, and I will need my truck to get to diffeerent job sites via hwy, then I will need it to get me to the off road places that I will have to work... It will be seeing areas around New Iberia, and Cameron Parish, so I need a tire good for both on, and off road...

IMO get either a buckshot or mud brutes seth, brutes run short but both tires are cheap and do well for a highway/ mall terrain.

Thanks guys.... So on average what is the price for these Buckshots, and mud brutes in a 285/75/16 size? I was looking at the ProComp X-tream All Terain tires... I have found them for $227 a tire... What do you think about them, and the price verses the others?
