Will LT295/70/R17 tires fir my 2016 GMC 2500 HD without installing a lift kit?

Mechanic's Assistant: How old are the tires? And have they been a problem in the past?

I am looking to replace the worn out stock tires with a larger size

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your 2500 yourself? What have you tried so far?

No, not myself. The only tires tried so far are the stock OEM tires.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

No, just will the larger size fit into the wheel well without rubbing

Hello, unfortunately they will not. They will with a 2" leveling kit but will still rub the sway bars some at full lock of the steering.

My goal is to provide 5 star service. Rating/accepting does not cost extra and ensures I'm credited for my time and knowledge. It also does not close your question if you have a follow up concerning this. Thank you for using Just Answer!
