What tires can I fit on my truck?

Know your tire sizes
Tire sizes are expressed in a common format: 235/75R15. 75 = aspect ratio (tire height/sidewall profile expressed as a % of tire width), 15 = wheel diameter (in inches) that a tire fits. Truck tires may also have the designation LT for Light truck along with the tire size.
Can I put different size tires on my truck?
It’s possible to change the size of your tires without actually changing the diameter. Generally, you don’t want to go with tires that have a diameter that is more than 3% different from the factory tires. It’s also a good idea to consult with a trusted mechanic before switching to larger or smaller tires.

For example, larger tires decrease your fuel economy because they are heavier, while smaller tires increase fuel efficiency. Bigger tires also have a higher rolling resistance than smaller tires which means they require more resistance and effort to get them rolling.
Will 33 inch tires fit a stock GMC Sierra?
There is not much required to fit 33” tires on your 2007-2018 Silverado or Sierra 1500. A great option would be a Leveling kit, which is both economical and functional, and will allow you the clearance needed to fit larger than stock tires.
Can I put bigger tires on my truck without a lift?
In most cases, you can put bigger tires on your truck without a lift. You can fit up to 33” tires on most trucks with no lift required.

Can you fit 215 tires instead of 205?
215/45 are 10mm wider than 205/45. The 45 (profile) is a percentage of the width. So if you have 205/45 over 215/45, the tyre will be narrower, with a slightly lower profile, but slightly larger profile than standard.
Can I use 225 tires instead of 215?
The car will be a little bit more resistant to hydroplaning in the rain, and have a little better traction in wet and slick conditions. Unless you’re exploring the limits of the car’s performance, most drivers probably wouldn’t notice a difference between a 225 and a 215, all else being equal.
